AGU's annual Fall Meeting brings approximately 24,000 earth and space scientists together in San Francisco, making it one of the best opportunities for connecting with many researchers working on sustainability issues. Last year at this time, we were just ramping up our outreach efforts, and our booth in AGU's Exhibit Hall was our first solo conference booth. We learned more about other related projects, demoed SEAD's tools, and got new groups interested in using SEAD. This year, we look forward to an even more successful time at AGU. Partially, that's because our booth will be more appropriately situated alongside the other NSF-funded projects in "NSF Street" rather than in the university section. But mostly, we're excited to share our accomplishments of the last year and to show scientists how we've made our tools even more valuable and easier to use for collaboration, data management, and data publication and preservation. There are a number of ways you can connect with us at AGU this year: Stop by our conference booth! We'll be at booth #2509 during Exhibit Hall hours. Better yet, contact us to set up an appointment for a demo while you're at AGU. Check out our posters! We've got two this year:
- "Publishing Heterogeneous Multi-source Research Data with Rich Metadata and Round-Trip Provenance: Opportunities and Challenges as Data Services Form an Ecosystem," presented by Jim Myers. Jim will be at the poster on Wednesday, 12/17 from 1:40 PM to 6:00 PM.
- "Geo-Semantic Framework for Integrating Long-Tail Data and Model Resources for Advancing Earth System Science,” presented by Praveen Kumar and Mostafa Elag. They will be at the poster on Wednesday, 12/17 from 1:40 PM to 6:00 PM.
Listen to our talk! Mostafa Elag will be presenting a paper, "Emergent Data-Networks from Long-Tail Collections," as part of the Improving Discoverability of Geophysical Data I session. This session takes place Friday, 12/19 from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM.
