Hello everyone,

Please consider submitting a paper to session 3109, " Linking Physical Objects to Cyberinfrastructure" for the AGU meeting to be held 2014 Dec 15-19 in San Francisco. Abstracts are due Aug 6, 2014.

Physical objects (specimens, cores, artifacts) are collected and studied in many Earth Science domains to generate ex-situ observations of geological and environmental features. Recent advances in physical object identifiers such as the International Geo Sample Number (IGSN), and the need to align information models for geological and biological specimens in paleobiological data systems and for environmental observations is leading to increased interdisciplinary cooperation and collaboration in the development of best practices for object identification, documentation, and citation, and for tools that facilitate the curation and digital preservation of large collections of physical specimens. This session calls for ideas, experiences, successes, and lessons learned in developing information models, databases, registries, and workflows for curation and digital preservation of physical objects that facilitate open discovery and access to the physical objects and the digital records, particularly methods and tools to generate and embed metadata collection within data capture applications.
