Join Us on October 30th<detected://date/0> and 31st for the Science Mission Directorate’s
Workshop on Maximizing the Scientific Return of NASA Data.
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) seeks to expand human knowledge through new scientific discoveries in order to understand the Sun, Earth, Solar System, and Universe.  SMD, in partnership with the Nation’s science community, conducts scientific studies of the Earth and Sun from space, returns data and samples from other bodies in the solar system, and peers out into the vast reaches of the universe.  Each of the four Science Divisions within SMD generates, analyzes, and archives large amounts of data to support unique science objectives and delivers data and scientific results to millions of users around the world.

In the past, management of data and computing resources has been conducted based on the specific needs of each mission or Division, with limited consideration for enabling inter-disciplinary research.  SMD seeks to develop a new Strategic Plan for Scientific Data and Computing to guide the evolution of the array of data and computing systems supporting research across the four science areas within SMD over the next five years.  To inform this work, SMD is hosting a Workshop on Maximizing the Scientific Return of NASA Data on October 30th and 31st in Washington, D.C.  The workshop will bring together thought leaders from academia, industry, and government to gather community input on a new, whole-of-SMD approach that leverages advances in information technology to enable groundbreaking scientific research.
