Dear Colleagues,

You are cordially invited to participate at the second "Earth Science
Ontology Dialog" mini-series of virtual panel sessions, which is
coming up this Thursday, 6-Sep-2012.

The mini-series (dubbed: "EarthScienceOntolog") is designed to explore
the current status and application of multi-level ontologies towards
developing a semantically enabled cyberinfrastructure for the Earth
Science Community. In addition, one key mission of the mini-series is
to bring together members of both communities (Earth Science and
Ontology/Semantics) into a meaningful dialog. We anticipate that the
sharing of requirements and use cases, geo-science problems and
issues, ontological engineering architectures and approaches, and
prospective tools, will enable collaborative understanding of the
challenges and potential value in the application of ontology and
semantics in Earth Science.

This mini-series of virtual events are co-organized/supported by
members of the EarthCube community, Ontolog community, SOCoP community
and the IAOA community.
