Dear Colleagues,

The AGU 2017 Fall Meeting will be held on 11-15, Dec. 2017 in New Orleans,
Louisiana. Abstracts submission deadline is Wednesday, 2 August 23:59 EDT.

We would like to encourage you to submit an abstract
<https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/in/papers/index.cgi?sessionid=26276> to
the session: *IN042: **Maximizing data value for data centers and data
managers: Experiences, strategies, lessons learned, and recommendations*

*Description*: The growing volume of disparate scientific datasets, complex
scientific questions, and difficult societal problems, coupled with limited
financial support for data needs, makes business challenging for data
centers and data managers. These entities add value to data through
investments in documentation, accessibility, and services. Yet, data
centers and data managers need guidance to best allocate limited resources
and to demonstrate to stakeholders the overall value provided.

This session invites abstracts around issues like:

Which curation practices are ‘worthwhile’? Which, if any, are not?

How can the quality or maturity of data management, curation,
documentation, services, etc., be measured? What metrics or guidelines
exist or could be developed for evaluating these aspects?

When is it worthwhile to invest in automation?

How can societal benefits be quantified, e.g. in education, public
planning, safety, and scientific knowledge?

What would a framework to evaluate the return on investment in data
curation look like?

*Conveners*:  Nancy A Ritchey, NOAA/NESDIS/National Centers for
Environmental Information, Stephen M Richard, Columbia University of New
York, Lamont -Doherty Earth Observatory, Anne Wilson, Laboratory for
Atmospheric and Space Physics, and Ilya Zaslavsky, San Diego Supercomputer
Center, Spatial Information Systems Lab,

Very best wishes,

On behalf of the Conveners,

Nancy Ritchey
