Data Science Town Hall at Winter AGU meeting

The Fall AGU meeting with 20,000+ scientists is holding a Town Hall TH45A: Data Science and a New Scientific Frontier. The goal of this town hall is to bring together these communities and groups from the field of space science to discuss cohesive approaches to the development of appropriate data infrastructures and to the creation of data-capable workforces. Though the emphasis will be on the discipline of space science, the discussion will be decidedly broad, addressing the connections between disciplines through methodology transfer. This town hall will provide a brief introduction to current efforts to transform the field of space science through data-driven discovery, including the National Science Foundation’s “Harnessing the Data Revolution”, the National Academy of Sciences Space Studies Board’s “Best Practices for a Future Open Code Policy for NASA Space Science”, and the NASA "Frontier Development Laboratory". The session will feature updates from each agency and provide a discussion period for the community to engage with agency representatives. Goals include providing a forum for interaction between NASA, the NSF, the NAS, and the space science community.
