Dear colleagues,

We invite you to submit an abstract for session #IN-028: Knowledge Networks and Collaborative Platforms in the Earth Sciences" 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.

Session Description:
	"Earth science research requires infrastructures that can support knowledge integration on large scales. These systems must combine technical capabilities with organizational techniques for coordinating numerous projects and groups, often across institutional boundaries. This session will discuss novel uses of cyberinfrastructure to facilitate collaboration, community building, governance, or knowledge sharing. Possible submissions topics include: (a) hubs or forges for Earth science software development, particularly if they integrate multiple projects, (b) knowledge sharing platforms deploying social networking tools, and (c) portals designed to promote community participation in integrating models, data, or knowledge."

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 NASA ESSI, ESIP-all, OGC ESS, Hydro & Met/Ocean DWGs, GEOSS SIF, OGC & GIS mailing lists.

We hope to see you at AGU!

Best regards,
Sylvia Murphy, NOAA
