You and your colleagues are invited to Collaborative Expedition Workshop #80, "
Leveraging SOA: Advancing Cyberinfrastructure Capabilities for High-Performing Distributed Communities" on Monday, Feb. 9, 2009.  This no fee, one day public workshop will explore the emerging cyberinfrastructure landscape for robust, collaborative organizing, that recognizes the importance of infrastructure metrics via Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to advance the performance capacity, reliability, and resilience of advanced networks.  Today advanced network federation is fundamental to high-performing distributed communities at national and global levels.
By defining and provisioning for a more granular level of performance measurement and analysis data through standards-based messaging service frameworks such as perfSONAR, the functioning of this complex web of network components can be understood by stakeholders and effectively aligned toward “whole system” evolution from distributed, autonomous parts.
It is likely that how we design our physical and virtual knowledge sharing environments (including scientific knowledge to inform policy and advance innovation) will play a pivotal role in the continued vitality and creativity of our 21st century democracy. This workshop will open up dialogue to facilitate "bootstrapping" among multiple communities.  Building on best practices from mature, distributed science communities, participants will have the opportunity to learn and contribute to the challenges of scale and complexity that impact the pace of scientific discovery and innovation and multi-institutional "virtual organizations" addressing national challenges.

RSVP: You will need to pre-register for this workshop by sending an email to Joan Cole at
expedition@xxxxxxxxx or 703-292-4873.  Please indicate whether you plan to attend in person or remotely via teleconference and web collaboration.

WHEN: Monday, February 9, 2009, 9:00am - 12:30pm

WHERE: National Science Foundation, Ballston, VA, Stafford Building II, Room 555
