I will present at the April Semantic Web meeting.  There are aspects
of this system that will take advantage of semantic web technologies,
and we have a particular interest in engaging that cluster, but this
talk will be at a level that knowledge or experience with semantic web
will not be required.

Others throughout the Federation may be interested in hearing more
about the system -- feel free to join in!

The Global Change Information System
Curt Tilmes, USGCRP NCO

The United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) coordinates
and integrates Federal climate and global change research programs and
investments to create and disseminate knowledge aimed at increasing
our understanding of climate change science and the impacts of climate
change on natural and human systems.

The National Coordination Office (NCO) of the USGCRP is coordinating
the development of a new data system to integrate information about
global change from across the federal government.  The Global Change
Information System (GCIS) will harmonize the organization and
representation of that information from across the program and
integrate existing information from agency data centers.  Early phases
of the GCIS development will focus on representing the provenance of
the National Climate Assessment (NCA), but will also look into
existing agency data centers for sources of information to integrate
into the system.

This talk will give a brief overview of the GCIS and its context
supporting the USGCRP and NCA, with a particular focus on potential
areas of collaboration and involvement for the ESIP Federation.
