In a previous post, I referred to Earth Science Informatics as a discipline-in-the-making.
To support this claim, I cited a number of data points. And of these data points, the 2006 Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) stands out as a key enabler.
With 22 sessions posted, the 2007 Fall Meeting of the AGU is well primed to further enable the development of this discipline.
Because I’m a passionate advocate of this intersection between the Earth Sciences and Informatics, I’m involved in convening three of the 22 Earth and Space Science Informatics sessions:
- Ontology Integration: A Pressing Challenge for Earth and Space Science Informatics
- Grid Technologies and Associated Infrastructures
- Putting Ontologies to Work: Real-World Applications in the Earth and Space Sciences
I encourage you to take a moment to review the calls for participation for these three, as well as the other 19, sessions in Earth and Space Science Informatics at the 2007 Fall Meeting of the AGU.
