The National Science Foundation (NSF) hosted a CI-Team Community Building Workshop in Washington D.C. July 9-11, 2007. This workshop brought together representatives participating in cyberinfrastructure projects from throughout the U.S. to share expriences and to make contact with members of the NSF CI-TEAM Management Team. Dr. Linda Hayden, Director of the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) attended the workshop as Principal Investigator of the CI-Team @ ECSU project. She was a member of the panel for the session titled:

"Panel Session Topics #3. What are the challenges, strategies, and outcomes for successfully engaging and retaining new communities?  How do you keep the community moving forward, maintaining momentum, sustaining community cohesion, and expanding its boundaries?"

With her on this panel were Richard Aló, University of Houston-Downtown and Andrew Grimshaw, University of Virginia. Dr. Haydens notes for this session can be found here.
