Hello earth data science folks and/or Drupal users

We are looking build a great session at the AGU Fall Meeting in San
Francisco around the use of the Drupal CMS for hosting science information
and data.

*We welcome you to submit an abstract to session IN28: Science on Drupal*


Description: The “Science on Drupal” invited session seeks to bring together
researchers from across the globe developing scientific collaborative
portals using the Drupal content management system. This session will allow
these researchers to share their work and expertise. The session will
include an open forum for discussion of Drupal scientific module development
efforts. Drupal already accounts for more than 293,000 installations on the
web. It requires a minimal software stack and can be customized and extended
with well documented API’s. This allows the Earth Science informatics
community to leverage Drupal as a framework, build custom modules for
science and utilize all the other out of the box Web 2.0 features.

HERE is the link to submit your abstract:

HERE are some submission details from the AGU:


   - Abstracts must focus on scientific results or their application. The
   Program Committee may decline to consider abstracts with other focus.

   - Submitted papers may be placed in a different, more appropriate session
   than the one to which it was submitted.  Final decisions regarding placement
   of individual papers and sessions rests with the Program Committee.

   - The person submitting the abstract will automatically be the First
   Author.  This cannot be modified.
   - The First Author must be an AGU member, or sponsored by an AGU member.
   - Your membership fee for 2011 must be paid by *29 July* in order to be
   recognized as a member in the abstract submission system.  After that date,
   we cannot guarantee that you will be able to submit as an AGU member.  If
   you have recently joined AGU or renewed your membership, you must wait a
   minimum of 2 business days before your account will be available to access
   in Abstract Central.
   - Non-members may submit an abstract as a First Author, but an AGU
   sponsor is required.  Non-members will need to create an account in Abstract
   Central.  Once their account is complete, they may proceed to submit their
   abstract as the First Author.  You will be asked for the sponsor’s AGU
   membership number in Step 5 of the submission process.

   - First Authors can have a maximum of one (1) contributed and one (1)
   invited abstract, or two (2) invited abstracts. The only exemption to this
   policy is the submission of (1) additional contributed abstract to an
   Education (ED) or Public Affairs (PA) session.

   - A flat fee of $60 will be charged for each regular submission, and $30
   for each student submission. There is no fee for persons fromQualifying
   Low and Lower Middle Income

   - Submissions can be saved as drafts and edited prior to the deadline,
   even after payment has been made.
   - Oral presentations cannot be requested, although you may request a
   poster presentation.

   - The abstract submission fee does not register you for the meeting.
   Separate registration fees
   - Submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation to give a
   presentation in the designated manner assigned by the Program Committee. It
   also grants AGU permission to publish the abstract.
   - To make either an oral or a poster presentation, the presenter must be
   listed on an abstract at the time of electronic publication.  An individual
   cannot present someone else’s paper, if their name is not listed as an
   author on the abstract.
