DICF: The Data Intensive Cyberinfrastructure Foundation

From CIFS website:

The Data Intensive Cyberinfrastructure Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the development and long-term viability of open source technologies which society increasingly depends on to manage, share, publish, and preserve the digital data that sustains our scientific, government, business, scholarly, and cultural life. The Foundation serves as the home of the growing open source community for iRODS, the Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System.

DICE Center

From DICE Center website:

The DICE Center is a new campus-wide UNC Center, created in April 2009, which builds on a 13-year research and development effort out of the DICE Group. The DICE Center is a community of scholars and science and technology experts at UNC coming together to:


The NEPTUNE Canada Project (North-East Pacific Time-Series Underwater Networked Experiments) currently has 800 km of cable connecting a suite of oceanographic instruments and video cameras in the "first regional-scale underwater ocean observatory that plugs directly into the Internet." The observatory, located in the Northeast Pacific off the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, is "collecting data from 11 instrument platforms and over 50 instruments installed in 4 locations" along the 800-km cable.

LT4eL: Language Technology for eLearning

The LT4eL project is supported by the European Community under the Information Society and Media Directorate, Learning and Cultural Heritage Unit. The technology will facilitate personalized access to knowledge within learning management systems and support decentralisation and co-operation in content management.

Tools include:

Open Archives Initiative

The Open Archives Initiative develops and promotes interoperability standards that aim to facilitate the efficient dissemination of content. OAI has its roots in the open access and institutional repository movements.

Earth System Curator

The Earth System Curator team
is prototyping a software environment for assembling, running, and
archiving information about climate models.  The idea is to make it
easier for scientists to perform modeling experiments, and to
coordinate with each other on efforts such as Model Intercomparison Projects (MIPs) and
