Submission begins here: Submit an Abstract to this Session
Session Description:
Semantic technologies, by adding machine readable meanings to data,
raise the functionality of existing data platforms to a new level and
create possibilities for more efficient interactions between users and
data sources, as well as among data sources. Various semantics-relevant
community efforts and standards, such as ESIP, Research Data Alliance,
EarthCube, CODATA, schema.org, DataCite, and DCAT, to name a few,
promote the discovery, access and integration of scientific data.
Geoscience, a domain with abundant sources, types, and formats of data,
has made significant progress in deploying semantic technologies in
recent years. The session welcomes all works relevant to semantics,
including and not limited to vocabulary building, ontology engineering,
data archival and publication, and multi-source data integration.
Conveners:
Xiaogang Ma, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
Tom Narock, Marymount University
Robert A Arko, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory
Steve Hughes, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Kindly note that the deadline for 2015 Fall AGU meeting submissions is
Wednesday, August 5th. Feel free to email questions to the conveners
about the session. Thanks a lot.
Kindest regards,
