EGU ESSI Session 11: Real Use of Standards and Technologies (RUST)

Conveners:  John van de Vegte, David Arctur

ESSI-RUST is a session where standards and technologies meet end users by demonstrating leading-edge and ready-to-use services and applications. Focus will be on (but not exclusively) OGC based services, data interchange encodings (GML, netCDF, HDF), CF-conventions and their use in applications and services. Future challenges in RUST shall also be addressed.

The intended audience will be ESSI and all EGU divisions dealing with cross-domain information exchange that would benefit from use of standardized technologies. The session should act as catalyzer for:

- End users, becoming aware of existing technologies that are ready to use in their own domain.
- Developers implementing standards for services and applications that can benefit from demonstrated solutions.
- Standardization bodies, to consider refining standards based on real user experience.

Authors of accepted oral abstracts are requested to show results via live demonstrations on self-provided computers; internet connectivity is expected in the meeting room / poster area. Slide show (simulated) presentations may also be prepared in case of network difficulties.  A Splinter Session will be organized to permit additional demonstrations to be shown that could not be accommodated in the main session. 

Interested participants are encouraged to submit their abstracts for oral or poster presentation on any aspects relevant to ESSI-RUST.

Keywords:  Standards, technologies, demonstration, applications, OGC, GML, netCDF, HDF, CF-convention

Deadline for EGU2011 abstracts to be submitted:  10 January 2011
