As we'e had presentations from iRODS, DuraSpace, Berkeley Electronic Press, etc, in part RDAP meetings, I though it might be a good place to solicit for presenters -- if you wanted to get your information out in front of geophysicists (or people dealing with geophysics data), this could be your chance.

For those not familiar with AGU, there's a 100% conference acceptance rate, as anything not selected for an oral session is given a poster slot.  (And oral sessions are allocated by how many abstracts are submitted for a given topic).

Now, normally, there's a one-abstract per person limit, but there's an exception for both the education & public affairs, and so besides of the "Architectural Components for Science Data Repositories and Archives" mentioned below, I'm also a convener of "ED22: Distributing Science Data for Re-Use", .  Submit abstracts at the same place below, but the session description is at:


Feel free to pass this along to any other folks you think might be interested.

> Dear colleagues,
> We are convening a session titled "IN04: Architectural Components for Science Data Repositories and Archives" at the Fall 2011 AGU, to be held in San Francisco during December 5-9. The abstract below provides the scope of the papers in this session:
> "Research and development across the space science communities have resulted in a wealth of information system architectural components for building data repositories and archives. These include registries, search and access protocols, search strategies, domain ontologies, data dictionaries, glossaries, and architectural standards. Many of these components are open source and in some cases supported by a community of developers. This session invites papers that describe both emerging and mature architectural components, their integration, and how they are being used to meet the expectations of modern scientists for science data discovery, access and use."
> Please consider submitting an abstract to this session. Please note that the submission site is open now at http://agu-fm11.abstractcentral.com/. 
> The deadline for submission is 4 August 23:59 EDT, much earlier than in previous years.
> Our apologies if you get this note more than once due to use of multiple mailing lists.
> Regards,
> Conveners:
> Daniel J. Crichton (NASA JPL)
> Joseph Hourcle (NASA/GSFC - Wyle)
> J. Steven Hughes (NASA JPL)
> Todd King (UCLA/IGPP)
