The European Geosciences Union 2019 (Vienna 7-12 April 2019)

The European Geosciences Union 2019 (Vienna 7-12 April 2019)

Dear Colleague

We would like to to highlight that the European Geosciences Union 2019 will be held in Vienna 7-12 April 2019

Further information:

We kindly invite you to submit an abstract to the session:

Metadata, Data Models, Semantics, and Collaboration
Conveners: Paolo Diviacco, Jon Blower, Paolo Mazzetti, Alaitz Zabala

Earth systems science is fundamentally cross-disciplinary, and increasingly this requires sharing and exchange of geoscientific information across discipline boundaries. This information can be both rich and complex, and content is not always readily interpretable by either humans or machines. Difficulties arise through differing exchange formats, lack of common semantics, divergent access mechanisms, etc.

Recent developments in distributed, service-oriented, information systems using web-based (W3C, ISO, OGC) standards are leading to advances in data interoperability. At the same time, work is underway to understand how meaning may be represented using ontologies and other semantic mechanisms, and how this can be shared with other scientists.

This session aims to explore developments in interoperable data sharing, and the representation of semantic meaning to enable interpretation of geoscientific information. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

— standards-based information modelling

— interoperable data sharing

— use of metadata

— knowledge representation through ontologies

— use of semantics in an interoperability context

— application of semantics to discovery and analysis

— metadata and collaboration

—— Please note that the deadline for Abstract submission is January 10, 2019 ——
—— Please feel free to forward this invitation to any people you think may be interested  ——

Kind regards

Paolo Diviacco, Jon Blower, Paolo Mazzetti, Alaitz Zabala
