Please consider submitting an abstract for the Fall AGU session- "Use of Ontologies in Earth Science Informatics". Abstract deadline is this Thursday evening.

*** IN09: Use of Ontologies in Earth Science Informatics***
Description:	 Ontologies have increasingly become a more common sight in a number of Earth science informatics applications. They have been utilized for different purposes, for example to mediate between semantic heterogeneities or knowledge representations that can either be reasoned from or queried against. This session aims at bringing together researchers that have made use of ontologies in a variety of scenarios and how ontologies have been embedded in larger systems in which they fulfill a specific purpose. The session is not limited to applications only but also invites contributions that deal with ontology visualization, ontology growth and maturation based on community input and development, and also how ontologies can be interacted with.
