Call for Abstracts
"Frameworks for Data Visualization"

AGU Fall Meeting, December 3-7, 2012, San Francisco, CA


Generating imagery for a wide range of science datasets via a
standardized set of processes is challenging. Inevitably, there is
always some number of unique, specialized steps in transforming
diverse data products into high-quality imagery suitable for outreach,
publications, science centers or for general public use. To address
these needs and functions, data providers and their partners have
developed frameworks to facilitate the visualization process.

At AGU this fall we are interested in identifying examples of
frameworks that represent the breadth of the geosciences and we
encourage the developers, maintainers, and users of those systems to
consider submitting abstracts to this session with a goal of answering
the question: How are data producers in the geosciences enabling data
visualization by their users?

Presentations for this session should attempt to address the following points:

+ What are the challenges/functions that the framework is attempting to address?

+ What varieties of data products are represented within these
frameworks? (e.g., considering data formats, types, and topics -- HDF,
CSV, vector, point, remotely sensed, in-situ, etc.)

+ How can these frameworks be expanded/adapted to other science
datasets? Have frameworks been developed with extensibility in mind or
are there requirements that necessitate solutions that are unique to
the source data?

+ What are the processing considerations when generating intermediate
data products that then feed the frameworks?

+ How do these considerations reflect the intended audience and infrastructure?

Other topics within the realm of visualization frameworks are welcome as well.

The deadline for submissions is August 8, 2012. You must submit your
abstracts directly on the AGU website:


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 feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this
session, and we hope to see you there!
