Overview:
Workshop Flyer - simple text with graphics, little detail, 1 page.

 

Workshop Description and Goals: This workshop will address how the Global Earth Observing System of Systems, GEOSS, will support citizens and public officials in making decisions based upon predictions of regional climate change. Recognizing that the science to predict regional changes in climate is still advancing, the workshop will address interoperability arrangements for decision support tools and predictive models used around the globe to support policy and management decisions. This workshop is one in a series organized by IEEE, ISPRS and OGC.

The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) is a complex systems of sensors, communication devices, storage systems, computational and other devices used in concert to observe the Earth and eventually come to a better understanding of the Earth’s processes. In addition, GEOSS will include models and processes to create information from the observations. The Washington Summit of July 2003 established the objective “to monitor continuously the state of the Earth, to increase understanding of dynamic Earth processes, to enhance prediction of the Earth system, and to further implement our international environmental treaty obligations”, and thus the need for “timely, quality, long-term, global information as a basis for sound decision making”. The Group on Earth Observations has been created to carry out the development of GEOSS. For more information on GEO and GEOSS see: http://www.earthobservations.org/

The User and the GEOSS Architecture workshop is a dialogue for users looking at GEOSS and its benefits to their application area. A societal benefit area will be represented at the workshop and an informal environment will be provided for exchange of ideas and to make recommendations. To help with this exchange, the workshop will provide an overview of the architecture and a demonstration of some of its capabilities. Participants will be encouraged to ask questions to further their understanding of the information system and the GEOSS approach. Recommendations of the workshop will be available to GEO committees as we move forward with GEOSS implementation. In summary, the workshop is a forum for users to interact with technologists to address the benefits and challenges of an advanced global system of systems providing earth observing data and information for the benefits of society.

Intended Audience: The workshop will interest those individuals and organizations that will benefit from the increased access to Earth observations for application to societal benefit areas provided by GEOSS. Also, the workshop will interest individuals and organizations that seek to understand how their systems can contribute to the Global Earth Observation System of Systems. The workshop is being hosted by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and is scheduled as part of OGC’s Technical Committee meetings.

The France Interoperability Day is geared to those organizations that plan and implement systems that involve sharing and using Geographic Information across the Internet. It is aimed to be of interest across both the public and private sectors.

The France 'Interoperability Day' event is being hosted by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) and is scheduled for July 11 2007 as part of OGC’s Technical Committee meetings.

The days events will cover a host of issues regarding the use of OGC and ISO standards such as Geography Markup Language (GML), Web Map Service (WMS) and Web Feature Service (WFS) that provide the interoperability essential for Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI) at different levels -- from European to national to regional (in line with the new INSPIRE directive) to all over the globe. This is an opportunity to learn about best practices from acknowledged international experts on the benefits of using open standards when implementing SDI components. French will be the only language presenters will use. No simultaneous translation will be offered.

The speakers at this event will come from across Europe and beyond, they have been asked to cover areas like; the problems they sought to solve, why they chose an interoperable route based on open standards, technical approach, lessons learned, etc. At the end of the day, we want to help those who want to build operational systems and are asking speakers to provide reference material where they can.

Call for Papers

The organizers of the OGC's France Interoperability Day (see website at: http://www.opengeospatial.org/event/070711interop) are seeking potential speakers to submit papers related to geospatial interoperability using open standards within one of the following topic areas:

  • Interoperable Technology Development
  • Earth Observation & GMES Application
  • INSPIRE-related Applications and Geosciences Services on the Web
  • Interoperability Demonstration (must contain multiple partners)

 

Organizations and individuals are welcome to supply an abstract of no more than 300 words so that the organizers may evaluate candidate papers by June 1, 2007. Those who are selected to submit a paper are required to submit final versions by July 1, 2007.

A subset of those selected to submit a paper will be invite to prepare and present their paper in presentation form of no more than 15 minutes during the France Interoperability Day event. Presenters are asked to use slides (PowerPoint or OpenOffice Presentation) and will also participate in a panel covering the general topic area. The presentation will need to submitted by July 1, 2007 for compilation on the OGC web site. Presentations must be non-commercial, promote geospatial Interoperability. Presentations will need to be prepared in French and conducted in the French language, no translation services will be provided.

Abstracts (300 words or less) should be sent, along with complete contact details to: papers [at] opengeospatial [dot] org
