SLIS faculty member and Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center Director Katy Börner is co-organizing the second NSF Workshop on Knowledge Management and Visualization Tools in Support of Discovery, held at the New York Hall of Science in Queens, April 7-8, 2008. Other co-organizers include Luis M. A. Bettencourt of the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Mark Gerstein of Yale University, and Stephen Miles Uzzo of the New York Hall of Science.

Two more members of the Cyberinfrastructure for Network Science Center, Senior System Architect Weixia (Bonnie) Huang and Graphic Designer Elisha Hardy, will serve as facilitators at the event.

According to the web page: "This workshop invites experts to brainstorm socio-technical infrastructures that address the needs and challenges identified in Workshop I. It will bring together about 20 leading experts in database research and digital libraries, cyberinfrastructure/ e-Science design, and social science of CI from the U.S. but also from Asia and Europe."

The workshop will mark the third time in recent years that Börner has been involved in a major event at the New York Hall of Science; her Places & Spaces: Mapping Science exhibit was displayed there from December 2006 to February 2007, and she was the co-organizer of the Network Science Workshop and Conference held there May 20-25, 2007.
