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.

GEOSS Workshop XXV
Perspectives on GEOSS Architecture: Principles and Implementation

Palacio de Congresos, Valencia, Spain
3-4 December 2008

This GEOSS workshop will focus on the system-of-systems architecture that guides the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) in developing GEOSS.

The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) aims to achieve comprehensive, coordinated and sustained observations of the Earth system. An initial operating capability of the GEOSS Common Infrastructure has recently been established. The workshop will review the architecture that guided the initial capability and will develop recommendations for future developments.
The workshop will interest individuals and organizations from government, academia and industry sectors that seek to use GEOSS to increase access to Earth observations for their own use or for supporting their organizations system planning. Also, the workshop will interest individuals and organizations that seek to understand how their systems can contribute to GEOSS.

GEOSS Workshop XLIII: Sharing Climate Information and Knowledge

Start: 
Friday, 2011-09-23
End: 
Friday, 2011-09-23
Location: 

The workshop will be held at NCAR Center Green in Boulder, Colorado.

Description:


At this workshop, key representatives from industry, academia, and government will provide invited talks focused on key issues, tools and techniques now available to improve interdisciplinary discovery and use of climate modeling results.  The workshop will take place a few days after the FOSS4G conference in Denver and immediately following the OGC TC meeting in Boulder.

The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS, see earthobservations.org) is a complex international system of sensors, communication devices, storage systems, computational and other devices used to observe the Earth and to gather the data needed for a better understanding of the Earth’s processes. In addition, GEOSS includes models and processes to create information from the observational data. 

With the highly coupled nature of the earth system and the need to understand global environmental processes and their regional linkages, it is increasingly important to allow and enable disparate organizations around the world to access, process and share climate data and model results now being compiled for the next assessment report (AR5) by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Regional downscaling and ensemble applications, using common standards for exchange and encoding, are of particular interest for the coming year, as the next phase of global modeling results become available. It is also crucial to long-term and interdisciplinary use of climate data to develop methods for collection, understanding, and preservation of data quality and other provenance metadata. At this workshop in Boulder, we will emphasize tools and techniques now available to improve interdisciplinary discovery and use of climate modeling results. 

GEOSS is a project of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). The OGC is a Participating Organization in GEO, and the OGC leads the multi-year GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP). The AIP is leading the incorporation of contributed components consistent with the GEOSS Architecture using a GEOSS Web Portal and a GEOSS Clearinghouse search facility to access services through GEOSS Interoperability Arrangements.

Local Information and Travel: 

Airport

The closest international airport is Logan International Airport (BOS)

Parking

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.
