Cyberinfrastructure

Regularly rerunning forecastings using the newest data is a core aspect of iterative near-term forecasting. This sets a higher bar for repeatability and presents informatic and computational challenges that go beyond most ecological analyses, particularly for forecasts running closer to real-time. The goal of the cyberinfrastructure working group is to make it easier to implement, archive, and share automated iterative forecasts, so that any research group that can develop a forecasting model can deploy it as an automated system. Efforts of this working group include, but are not limited to, the development of standards and databases for transparent, open, and interoperable archiving and sharing or both forecasts and forecast workflows, and the development of shared community tools for data ingest/interoperability and for forecast workflow automation / continuous integration. We will make the components of our infrastructure available through open-source software and open educational resources for using existing tools.

Cyberinfrastructure Working Group Schedule of Calls:
The Cyberinfrastructure & Methods Group will meet jointly on January 13, February 10, March 10, April 14, and May 12 at 11am US Eastern. We are always open to people joining the calls, contact us at eco4cast.initiative@gmail.com
