Dear Colleagues,

Now that the AMAZING ESIP summer 2014 meeting is behind us, we hope you
will considering submitting an abstract to our session at the upcoming 2014
Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU), being held in San
Francisco the week of December 15.  Our session will bring together earth
and space science data facilities and their users to discuss the
requirements, challenges, and solutions for managing Big Data's volume,
velocity, veracity, and variety in this rapidly evolving world.
 Information on the session and important notes on submitting an abstract
are provided below. Please join us this December in San Francisco for what
surely will be a lively and informative session!

Earth and Space Science Data Facilities in a Big Data World
Submit an Abstract to this Session

*Session ID#: *3699
Session Description:
For years, Earth and space science data facilities around the world have
been managing digital data assets and making the information available to
their designated communities.  These facilities, defined loosely as
organizations whose primary mission includes the receipt and dissemination
of digital data, have adapted themselves to manage the changing
data-driven demands and meet the evolving requirements of their users.
These challenges can be more effectively met in today's data rich, yet
often budget-limited world through sharing of experiences, knowledge, and
solutions. This session solicits abstract submissions from Earth and space
science data facilities on how they have approached the Big Data challenges
of volume, velocity, veracity, and variety; from users on
their requirements for and experiences with data facilities; and from the
entire community on their actionable thoughts and recommendations on how to
effectively manage digital assets for current and future generations.
