Singh Receives Additional Funding for OOI Cyberinfrastructure Study

Dr. Munindar Singh, professor of computer science at NC State University, has been awarded additional supplemental funding by the University of California-San Diego/National Science Foundation to support his research proposal titled “Policy-Based Governance for the OOI Cyberinfrastructure.”  This $10,000 supplement brings the total funding for this project to $412,330.  The award period runs through February 25, 2015.
Abstract - This project will develop policy-based service governance modules for the Oceanographic Observatories Initiative (OOI) Cyberinfrastructure. The main objectives of the proposed project include (1) formulating the key conceptual model underlying the patterns of governance; (2) formalizing "best practices" patterns familiar to the scientific community and seeding the cyberinfrastructure with them; (3) understanding user requirements for tools that support creating and editing patterns of governance.
