Data on Data:
Presenting Stakeholder Alignment Data on
the Cyberinfrastructure for Earth System Science
Professor Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld


Date: Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Time: 12:30 to 1:30

Location: Stafford II-555


Professor Cutcher-Gershenfeld will present mid-process findings from stakeholder alignment research on the NSF EarthCube initiative, assessing the social infrastructure for this leading “big data” cyberinfrastructure initiative. Based on survey data from over 850 geoscientists and computer scientists, the presentation will feature innovative methods for specifying stakeholders, identifying interests, and visually representing stakeholder alignment in complex systems. Specific challenges will be identified in sharing data, tools, models, and visualizations across fields and disciplines; as well as underlying theory and principles for stakeholder alignment in complex systems. The research is supported through one of the inaugural NSF INSPIRE grants, bridging multiple directorates with transformational research (NSF EAR 12-49607).

The goal of EarthCube is to transform the conduct of geoscience research through the development of a community-guided cyberinfrastructure, integrating data, tools, models, visualizations, and information across geoscience fields and disciplines. The EarthCube community website has been set up to foster community collaboration, and will provide updated information, resource documents, and discussion forums so that community groups, consortia, researchers, and educators can share ideas, introduce concepts, and find and develop collaborative efforts.

About The Speaker

Joel Cutcher-Gershenfeld

Professor, School of Labor and Employment Relations,

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Professor Cutcher-Gershenfeld’ s research centers on enabling institutions to operate effectively in the context of accelerating change, expanding complexity, and increasing polarization. This includes advancing theory, policy, and practice associated with stakeholder alignment in complex systems. Professor Cutcher-Gershenfeld has co-authored six books, including “Strategic Negotiations” (Harvard Business School Press), “Knowledge-Driven Work” (Oxford University Press), “Lean Enterprise Value” (Palgrave), “Organizational Learning Systems” (Oxford University Press), and “International Human Resource Management and the Law” (Edwards Elgar). He is editor or co-editor of four additional books on human relations at work and workplace training, and the author or co-author of over 85 articles, book chapters and policy papers on negotiations, high performance work systems, labor-management relations, dispute resolution, economic development, and engineering systems. Professor Cutcher-Gershenfeld holds a Ph.D. from MIT and a B.S. from Cornell, both in industrial relations.
