Hello Colleagues!

We are very pleased to announce IN030. New Approaches to Data Discovery Across Geoscience Domains (Session ID 14131) at the forthcoming 2016 Fall American Geophysical Union meeting on December 12-16, 2016 in San Francisco, California.

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract for this Earth and Space Science Informatics session.  AGU 2016 Abstract submission is available at http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2016/abstract-submissions/.  The Deadline for abstract submission is August 3, 2016 (23:59 EDT).

Session Title: IN030. New Approaches to Data Discovery Across Geoscience Domains
Session Description: Research data resides in myriads of independent domain-specific, domain-independent and institutional repositories. These repositories may organize information and support search by datasets, samples, time series, individual observations, etc. Different information models, granularity levels, access mechanisms, and semantic conventions make cross-domain data search far from a trivial task. Further, it is unclear to what extent existing search mechanisms meet the evolving data discovery needs of geoscientists.
This session aims to explore the challenges and new approaches that those who produce data, those who search for data, and those who build systems that enable data discovery, share. We solicit submissions covering topics such as:

  *   Understanding and meeting the data discovery needs of geoscientists
  *   Methods to improve relevance ranking
  *   Federated data search: practice and problems
  *   Searching across different types and granularity levels of information
  *   Data discovery through customized web crawling
  *   Text mining and NLP to enrich results and enable faceted search
  *   Describing dataset for improved scoring by search engines
  *   Modeling of user behavior
  *   New search paradigms and visual interfaces

We look forward to a broad selection of contributions for this exciting session and thank you in advance for your consideration.

Best Regards
