My apologies to those receiving this more than once.
We have less than 1 week to go before the abstract deadline for the
AGU fall meeting. Please consider submitting an abstract to session
IN21: Data Stewardship in the 21st Cenntury (see description below).
It is shaping up to be an exciting session with Martha Maiden (NASA),
Tom Karl (NOAA), Linda Gundersen (USGS), and Paolo Missier
(myExperiment) as invited speakers.
Description: Data are the lifeblood of science, yet stewarding data so
that they are available and useful to users both today and in the
future is an ongoing challenge due to the rapidly changing
technological landscape and the increasingly interdisciplinary and
collaborative nature of science itself. What are these challenges? How
can they be met? How can today's solutions be made durable so that
future users still can use the data acquired today? These topics are
of broad interest to the Earth science community, and have received
increasing attention recently with the formation of the Data
Preservation and Stewardship Cluster within the Earth Science
Information Partners (ESIP) Federation. This session is proposed to
facilitate discussion of results of both formal investigations into
and practical experiences with all aspects of data stewardship
including data models, issues of data sharing, data identity,
provenance, representation standards, preservation technologies,
access to legacy data, and beyond.
"Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little
temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
