AbstractThe NSF ‘Dimensions of Biodiversity’ program recognizes that emerging technologies in compu- ting and cyberinfrastructure are revolutionizing our ability to investigate the broad scale patterns and processes underlying biodiversity. This report documents the outcomes of an NSF sponsored workshop (DBI-1047800) held at Madison, WI during October 13-15, 2010 that was charged with identifying aspects of cyberinfrastructure necessary for supporting successful research in the Di- mensions of Biodiversity program. Workshop participants represented a broad spectrum of discip- lines, ranging from cyberinfrastructure, informatics, and computer science to biodiversity, biology, and environmental science, and provided excellent insights into the major cyberinfrastructure needs of biodiversity science.
