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."
