Greetings!    (01)

You and your colleagues are invited to Collaborative Expedition Workshop 
#77, "Exploring the Virtual Organization Landscape: Cyberinfrastructure 
Readiness for Emergency Response". This no fee, one-day public workshop 
will explore the emerging cyberinfrastructure landscape for light-weight 
virtual organizing, simulation, and emergency communications exchange 
capabilities.    (02)

Building on best practices from international disaster preparedness 
standards to on-going state and local efforts, participants will have the 
opportunity to learn and contribute to this on-going challenge of 
unprecedented scale, complexity, and significance to national health and 
security. Participants will explore how simulated "practice & 
high-performance readiness hubs" are built on credible commitments and 
foresight from multiple forms of expertise. Such commitments, expressed in     (03)

open standards, enable coherent, yet comprehensive visual and auditory 
information flows. This collective communications and discernment capacity     (04)

outperforms "command and control-only" organizing.    (05)

This workshop will open up dialogue to facilitate "bootstrapping" among 
multiple communities and institutions whose individual and collective 
contributions to shared design challenges will shape our national 
experience of cyberinfrastructure for years to come.     (06)

RSVP: You will need to pre-register for this workshop by sending an email 
to Angela Carter at carter@xxxxxxxxx    (07)

WHEN: Tuesday, October 7, 2008, 9:00am - 4:30pm 
WHERE: National Science Foundation Visitor Center, Ballston, VA, 4201 
Wilson Blvd. and then 4121 Wilson Blvd., Room 555    (08)
