Dear colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit an abstract to session 7244
"Independent validation of earth and space science information technology" of the Fall AGU meeting to be held 2015 Dec 14-18 in San Francisco. Abstracts are due 2015 Aug 5.

Session Description:
As data volumes and sources become larger and more diverse, the use of more advanced information technology becomes more critical.  As these technologies become more and more specialized and complex, they become harder for practitioners to apply to the science. Common problems (over-stating the maturity of the technology, poor definition, lack of documentation) frequently make the technology unusable by the customer base. The independence of the evaluation adds credibility to the claims of the readiness and effectiveness of the technology to the scientist-customer. This session explores the ways in which earth and space information technologies can be validated, both theoretically and experimentally. It discusses the issues in validating technology and its usability by earth and space scientists.
This session invites papers on topics such as:

  *   What are key challenges in validating technology?
  *   What are requirements?
  *   What are validation methodologies?
  *   Examples of successful verification/validation programs
  *   Examples of successful validation environments
Primary Convener:  Michael M Little, NASA Headquarters, Earth Science Technology Office, Washington, DC, United States
Conveners:  Kimberly Hines, NASA Ames Research Ctr, Moffett Field, CA, United States, Nancy J Hoebelheinrich, Knowledge Motifs LLC, San Mateo, CA, United States and Emily Law, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA, United States

Thank you,
emily, on behalf of Mike, Kim and Nancy
