In 2010, the NSF Office of Cyberinfrastructure launched a new Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) program to support investigators working on interdisciplinary research in cyberinfrastructure and the application of cyberinfrastructure to science and engineering research. At the time of the workshop, approximately 50 CAREER grants had been awarded to researchers. To bring together the community of OCI CAREER awardees, a workshop was held June 25-26, 2012, in Arlington, Virginia with several goals: (1) encourage networking and discussion among awardees; (2) provide a forum to facilitate the discovery of new synergies and connections among researchers from the community; and (3) provide inspiration and motivation for new research through a series of keynote presentations by leaders in the areas of Grand Challenges in Cyberinfrastructure, Big Data, Computational Science, High Performance Computing, and Visualization. The workshop provided networking opportunities to seek out and gain potential collaborators, and included a poster session that allowed poster presenters to solicit additional interest from attendees.
