Dear colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract for session #IN-014, "Data Discovery and 
Access Services," at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting on 3-7 
December 2012 in San Francisco. This session is part of the Earth and Space 
Science Informatics track, and will be convened by Jeff de La Beaujardiere 
(NOAA) and Ken Casey (NOAA NODC). See below for full session description.

Session Description:
	"Publicly-funded Earth science data should be readily discoverable and 
accessible by potential users. Recent advances in data search and retrieval 
techniques enable the integration of services for finding data collections, 
narrowing down to individual data elements, and seamless subsetting and 
retrieval, using web portals or analysis software that support standardized 
protocols and formats.This session invites papers on new implementations of data 
discovery and access services, development of standards and best practices, 
linking of services from different providers in a system-of-systems approach, 
user tools that make use of this service infrastructure, techniques for 
enhancing searches across large or heterogeneous collections, and other related 

If you are interested, we suggest you let us know before actually submitting 
(reply to Ken and Jeff) so that we can provide any additional information that 
might be relevant. You may of course submit without consulting us first. 
Abstract submissions are now open at http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2012/ .
The deadline is 8 August 2012. The first author must be an AGU member
or sponsored by a member.

This session will be scheduled by AGU as either oral or poster or both, 
depending on the number and quality of the abstracts submitted. Authors will be 
informed in September regarding the date and format (oral or poster) of their paper.

Please forward this message. Original distribution included ESIP-all, OGC 
mailing lists.

We hope to see you at AGU!

Best regards,
  Jeff de La Beaujardiere - NOAA Data Management Architect
  Kenneth S. Casey - Technical Director, NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center
