Congrats to Jin Zheng for winning the Funding Friday Competition at the ESIP 2013 Summer Meeting with his proposal “Semantic Similarity Computation and Concept Mapping in the Earth and Environmental Sciences”. He is 1 of 3 to win the competition this meeting.
A fund of USD 3000.00 will be awarded to him to support his work, plus a travel and registration expense package for the ESIP 2014 Winter Meeting to support him to present his results.
Word is that this is the third ESIP meeting in a row where a member of the Tetherless World Constellation has won a Funding Friday Competition. Eric Rozell and Marshall Ma had won previously.
