Local Information and Travel: 


The closest international airport is Logan International Airport (BOS)


Parking in Cambridge and Boston can be expensive and hard to find (Marriott Parking is $22 per day for self-park).  Whenever possible, park your car at the hotel, and use public transportation to get to the MIT campus. If you must drive to the campus, on- and off-street parking is available for a fee, but most public parking is not very close to the center of the MIT campus

Public Transportation (the MBTA, known as "the T")

The closest subway station to campus is Kendall Square on the Red Line, you may also want to consider going to Central Square (also on the Red Line) or taking the #1 or CT1 bus across the Charles River from Back Bay, depending on where you are coming from and your destination on campus.

Public transportation fares and schedules may be found at the MBTA website. If you are coming to MIT for an extended visit, you may want to consider buying a stored value CharlieCard or an unlimited use weekly or monthly pass.



GEOSS Workshop: The User and the GEOSS Architecture XVI “Regional Decisions for Climate Change”

Friday, 2007-09-21
Saturday, 2007-09-22
UCAR/NCAR Center Green 3080 Center Green Drive Boulder, CO 80301

Download the Agenda for the workshop.


This event will be free to attend. Registration is now available.


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.
