Apologies for cross posting, as always.  AGU abstract deadline is

We would like to invite abstract submissions to the following fall AGU

*Session ID#: * 24500
*IN051:  **Quality Control and Provenance of Scientific Data: Data
Producers and Consumer perspectives*
Session link:  https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/preliminaryview.cgi/
Session Description:
Model Development, data analysis and end-user applications of scientific
data are becoming increasingly popular and challenging. Although they may
operate differently, they still share an important challenge: understanding
the quality of the data being used. Thus, credibility becomes an important
prerequisite for all stages of the data lifecycle, from observations used
by models, to outputs generated by models, and finally the consumer
applications that use the data. When integrating data from many sources, it
is paramount that the Data Provenance is well understood, and this is a
challenge faced across all data communities. From the use of metadata
database engines to visualization techniques, researchers continue to look
for techniques to best certify and document their data. The Jupyter
notebook is one such example, but many others exist.

In this session, we invite presentations on value-added approaches to
quality controlling scientific data effectively. Open-source technologies
are particularly welcome.
