AGU Fall meeting 2015
Description:
Welcome to the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting. With nearly 24,000 attendees, the AGU Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. Now in its 48th year, the AGU Fall Meeting is the best place to present your research, hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field, and network and make connections that can enhance your career.

The AGU Fall Meeting brings together the entire Earth and space sciences community for discussions of emerging trends and the latest research. The technical program includes presentations on new and cutting-edgeAmerican Geophysical Union - Fall Meting 2012 science, much of which has not yet been published, meaning you’ll return to work with knowledge you can’t get anywhere else.

RDA Fifth Plenary Meeting
Description:
RDA is pleased to announce that the United States will be hosting its Fifth Plenary Meeting in San Diego, California from March 9 -11, 2015, at the beautiful Paradise Point Hotel.

For those unfamiliar with RDA, the Plenaries are multi-day meetings held twice a year in various locations worldwide to provide the RDA community an opportunity to network and collaborate with peers in various disciplines, and hear from industry experts and world leaders on topics related to research data sharing and exchange.

Celebrating its second year as an international organization, RDA will highlight the accomplishments of its membership. With the theme, “Adopt-a-Deliverable”, focus will be on the outputs from the initial set of RDA Working Groups, and on ensuring lasting impact in the research data sharing community through adoption by other organizations.

ESIP Summer Meeting 2014
Description:
As an organization, the ESIP Federation optimizes collaboration through in-person meetings and virtually through collaboration space on the Web. Partners utilize these neutral forums for knowledge exchange and collaboration–an intellectual commons of sorts–where practitioners solve common problems. This community-based approach is discipline neutral, with the technology solutions supporting science by improving discovery, access, integration and interoperability.

The summer meeting is technical in nature. The meetings supplement interactions throughout the year by offering concentrated blocks of time to work collaboratively on issues of interest to the community. Each meeting has a theme, ranging from evaluating the impacts of data to defining data and information quality. Feel free to join us at any ESIP Federation meeting.

Dates: July 8, 2014 - July 11, 2014

ESIP Federation Winter 2013 Meeting
Description:
As an organization, the ESIP Federation optimizes collaboration through in-person meetings and virtually through collaboration space on the Web. Partners utilize these neutral forums for knowledge exchange and collaboration–an intellectual commons of sorts–where practitioners solve common problems. This community-based approach is discipline neutral, with the technology solutions supporting science by improving discovery, access, integration and interoperability.

The ESIP Federation meets twice annually, January and July. Each meeting has a different focus. The winter meeting, held the first week of January in Washington, DC has a focus on higher level policy issues. The summer meeting, typically held in the third week of July moves around the country to different locations. The summer meeting is technical in nature. The meetings supplement interactions throughout the year by offering concentrated blocks of time to work collaboratively on issues of interest to the community. Each meeting has a theme, ranging from evaluating the impacts of data to defining data and information quality. Feel free to join us at an upcoming ESIP Federation meeting.

GEOSS Climate Workshop 2011
Description:
At this workshop, key representatives from industry, academia, and government will provide invited talks focused on key issues, tools and techniques now available to improve interdisciplinary discovery and use of climate modeling results. The workshop will take place a few days after the FOSS4G conference in Denver and immediately following the OGC TC meeting in Boulder. The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS, see earthobservations.org) is a complex international system of sensors, communication devices, storage systems, computational and other devices used to observe the Earth and to gather the data needed for a better understanding of the Earth’s processes. In addition, GEOSS includes models and processes to create information from the observational data. With the highly coupled nature of the earth system and the need to understand global environmental processes and their regional linkages, it is increasingly important to allow and enable disparate organizations around the world to access, process and share climate data and model results now being compiled for the next assessment report (AR5) by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Regional downscaling and ensemble applications, using common standards for exchange and encoding, are of particular interest for the coming year, as the next phase of global modeling results become available. It is also crucial to long-term and interdisciplinary use of climate data to develop methods for collection, understanding, and preservation of data quality and other provenance metadata. At this workshop in Boulder, we will emphasize tools and techniques now available to improve interdisciplinary discovery and use of climate modeling results. GEOSS is a project of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). The OGC is a Participating Organization in GEO, and the OGC leads the multi-year GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP). The AIP is leading the incorporation of contributed components consistent with the GEOSS Architecture using a GEOSS Web Portal and a GEOSS Clearinghouse search facility to access services through GEOSS Interoperability Arrangements.

Geo-Data Informatics 2011: Exploring the Life Cycle, Citation and Integration of Geo-Data
Description:
The workshop will bring together the requisite scientists, information specialists, librarians, computer scientists and data managers who specialize and generalize in a broad variety of geo- discipline areas and applications, with the primary objective to: to substantially advance discussions and directions of data life cycle, data integration and data citation, with strong emphasis on end-use, and to provide a state-of-the-field report to NSF and the USGS of the geoinformatics community’s capabilities and needs that could in turn ultimately benefit from an academic-multi-agency community-focused set of development activities. Additional deliverables would include: a) Readiness assessment and identification of gaps for both technology and education around geo-data informatics and their priorities, b) Grand challenge opportunities as well as immediate next steps, c) Identification of additional stakeholders and means to include their inputs. The time is right for a series of discussions across the various geoscience discipline communities. The proposed workshop is a forum for this discussion and is an important component of the conversation, which must occur immediately. It is very likely that a highly distributed implementation will be required and these will rely upon a number of focused and coordinated efforts.

International Provenance and Annotation Workshop 2010
Description:
The Third International Provenance and Annotation Workshop (IPAW2010) builds on the success of previous workshops in Salt Lake City (2008), Chicago (2006, 2002), and Edinburgh (2003). It was held during June 1516, in Troy, New York, at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. IPAW 2010 brought together computer scientists from dirent areas and provenance users to discuss open problems related to the provenance of computational and non-computational artifacts. A total of 59 people attended the workshop. These attendees came from the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, Brazil, and Japan. 36 submissions were received in response to the initial call for papers. Each of these submissions was reviewed by at least three reviewers. Overall, 7 submissions were accepted as full papers, 11 were accepted as medium-length papers, 7 were accepted as demo papers, and 6 were accepted as short papers. In addition, a follow-up call for late-breaking work in the form of a poster and abstract was issued, which resulted in 10 additional contributions being made. The workshop was organized as a single track event with paper, poster, and demo sessions interleaved. Professor Susan Davidson (University of Pennsylvania) presented a keynote address on provenance and privacy.
