A kick-off meeting for the first of the SEEDS Working Groups will be
held Thursday, January 8, 2003 at the Renaissance Orlando Hotel by the
Airport in Orlando, Florida. The working groups meeting that day are the
Standards Working Group, the Metrics Planning and Reporting Working
Group, the Technology Infusion Working Group, and the Reuse Working
Group. These groups came about as a result of an ESE-sponsored study,
the Strategic Evolution of Earth Science Enterprise Data Systems
(SEEDS), and were highlighted in the recent Research, Education, and
Applications Solutions Network (REASoN) solicitation. Information about
the study and its recommendations is available at
http://eos.nasa.gov/seeds. Information about the working groups and
their proposed charters will also be available via the above link.

9:15 Data System Evolution and SEEDS from the ESE Perspective
