This chapter discusses how multidisciplinary participants have contributed to planning and building the Geosciences Network (GEON). GEON is a cyberinfrastructure project that aims to produce a range of premium technologies for earth sciences. The project is intended to emerge as an infrastructure for the geosciences combining tools of collaboration along with data that will be used by different disciplines studying the earth. The participants of the network have brought together some earth and computer science experts from different institutions across the United States to develop the infrastructure. The network is composed of twelve principal investigators who are divided between two groups of researchers engaged in studying the earth and computation.

Keywords:   multidisciplinary participants, cyberinfrastructure, earth sciences, geosciences, principal investigators
