*Check out the (Draft) Meeting
The meeting program<http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/File:Federation_of_Earth_Science_Information_Partners_Posters_Sessions_V4.doc#file>is

This could be anything from breakout session advertisement, birds of a

These will be packaged up after the meeting and sent out in a document to
the entire list as well.

If you are not going to be at the meeting, but have an item you'd like
posted send me an email or add it directly to the wiki and it will be added
to the board.

overview of a range of options for addressing the most common needs
identified. To be sure solutions to your needs are included, please
