Greetings ESIPers-

There are a variety of geoinformatics related sessions scheduled at the
Geological Society of America National Meeting in Minneapolis, MN, October
9-12. The abstract deadline is July 26. This meeting provides a good venue
to interact with geologic domain scientists who represent a large part of
the geoscience information user community - an excellent opportunity to get
information out about new geoinformatics resources you have been working on.
Here is a list of the sessions sponsored by the Geoinformatics
division-please consider submitting an abstract and participating. (sorry to
those of you on esip-interop who already got this)

T149. Virtual Reality in Geoscience Education (Digital Posters). Declan G.
De Paor, Steven J. Whitmeyer, John E. Bailey

Showcase your geo-visualizations using the medium of the future - the
digital poster session. Presenters will hook up their own PC/Mac laptops to
one of 20 flat screens. For T149, the abstract fee is $80, however the
conveners are offering a rebate to defray the extra cost. To confirm
suitability for rebate, send abstract to ddepaor at odu.edu before submitting.

This session covers virtual reality in formal and informal geoscience
education at all levels: Google Earth, OmniGlobe, LiDAR, GigaPan, full-dome
digital planetaria, caves, and resources for handheld devices, such as iPads
ABSTRACT TO THIS SESSION. Submit an abstract to this session


T186. Registration and Discovery of Geoscience Information Resources:
Metadata, Search, and Catalogs. Stephen M. Richard, Rusty Kimball

The proliferation of online data increases the need for more effective
methods to register and discover resources on the Web. This session will
include papers on the description and discovery of geoscience information
resources. Submit an abstract to this session


T191. Printed Past, Digital Future: The Key to Geoscience Information is in
Your Library. Rusty Kimball

Geoscience information professionals provide access to numerous print and
electronic resources that need to be maintained, organized, preserved, and
made discoverable to geoscience researchers. This session will address the
associated issues, challenges, and solutions. Submit an abstract to this


T195. Data Preservation and Management in the Coming Decade. Frances W.
Pierce, Brian J. Buczkowski, Betty M. Adrian, John C. Steinmetz, M. Lee

This session explores integrating digital and physical information, future
directions in geoscience preservation policies, and the challenges of
sharing and managing data within the geosciences and among other entities,
including libraries, data centers, and commercial publishers. Submit an
abstract to this session


T196. Geoinformatics in Action (Posters). Stephen M. Richard, Tim Ahern,
Richard P. Hooper, Kerstin A. Lehnert

The purpose of this session is to bring together geologists and
geoinformatics practitioners to learn about operational systems that utilize
geoinformatics, as well as prototype systems exploring the next generation
of geoinformatics applications. Submit an abstract to this session


T187. Delivering Geoscience Knowledge in Federal Systems: What Can the Old
and New Worlds Learn from Each Other? Ian Jackson, M. Lee Allison, John

Data is increasingly being managed and delivered from multiple component
sources in North America and Europe. How are the geological communities
there facing the challenges of giving the user access to consistent data?
Submit an abstract to this session


T192. From Maps to Apps: Moving Toward a Comprehensive, Linked-Process
Modeling Approach. A. Keith Turner, D.A. Keefer, Holger Kessler

This session addresses the entire digital geoscience data-collection,
management, and dissemination process, including: making and maintaining
digital data resources, sophisticated 3-D/4-D geospatial models and
visualizations, and collaborative Web-enabled outreach options. Submit an
abstract to this session


T194. Decision Support for the Geosciences: The Interface between Public,
Policy, and Science. Suzanne A. Pierce, Tony Jakeman

Decision support for the geosciences can convey meaning and reveal patterns
that are relevant for society. Pairing computational techniques and social
processes expands understanding, access, and communication of science-based
concepts for collaborative learning and informed dialog. Submit an abstract
to this session
