Winter Meeting 2012

The 2012 Winter ESIP Federation Meeting will focus on the theme: Connections Through Collaboration: Engaging Community Throughout the Data Life Cycle. With increasing attention being paid to data systems interoperability both within and across science disciplines, the ESIP Federation plays an important role in bringing together organizations and individuals who make the connections - both human and technical - necessary to achieve integrated science. Speakers have been invited to represent academic, public and philanthropic interests, all with a goal toward understanding new ways to measure how Earth science information is used. Breakout sessions will be led by several of the ESIP Federation's committees, clusters and working groups addressing both the technological and societal benefit challenges within our community.
