EGU General Assembly 2011

Start: 
Sunday, 2011-04-03
End: 
Friday, 2011-04-08
Details: 

The EGU General Assembly 2011 in Vienna, Austria will bring together geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences. The EGU provides for scientists a forum to present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences. Technical sessions of interest to OGC members include:


1. Real Use of Standards and Technologies (RUST)Conveners: John van de Vegte (KNMI), David Arctur (OGC)ESSI-RUST is a session where standards and technologies meet end users bydemonstrating leading-edge and ready-to-use services and applications.Focus will be on (but not exclusively) OGC based services, datainterchange encodings (GML, netCDF, HDF), CF-conventions and their use inapplications and services. Future challenges in RUST shall also beaddressed.


2. Information Fusion: Issues, Barriers and ApproachesConveners: David Arctur (OGC), Peter Fox (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)Merging disparate data sources and models for multidisciplinary study isan increasingly urgent need.  Key drivers for this direction of researchinclude requirements for improved situational awareness; the vital needfor enhanced preparedness and swift, appropriate response to natural andmanmade disasters; global climate change; and a wide range of othersocietal and environmental circumstances. Technology - including standards- for meeting these ends has advanced rapidly, but cultural,institutional, and related issues can impede our ability to apply it. Wewelcome submissions that describe successful integrative data analyses,with descriptions of specific solutions for overcoming barriers andobtaining cooperation and coordination in multidisciplinary settings.


3. Climate Information IntegrationConveners: David Arctur (OGC), Stefano Nativi (Univ Florence, CNR), SandroFiore (CMCC, Center for Euro-Mediterranean Climate Change)The current climate debate highlights the importance of free, open,authoritative sources of quality climate data that are available for peerreview and for collaborative purposes. It is increasingly important toallow disparate organizations around the world to share climate data in anopen manner, and to perform dynamic processing of climate data via webbased services, using common “community agreed” standards without havingto change their internal systems or the language that they use internallyto describe their data. We also wish to identify archives of qualityclimate data, and make these available for interdisciplinary work. Focuswill be on applications and opportunities for enhancing existing dataexchange standards for use with climate data.

ESA-EUSC-JRC 2011 - Image Information Mining: Geospatial Intelligence from Earth Observation

Start: 
Wednesday, 2011-03-30
End: 
Friday, 2011-04-01
Details: 

The event is the seventh in the series jointly organised by ESA and EUSC, and by JRC since 2009.
The dramatic increase in volume, details, diversity and complexity and the increase in user demand for simultaneous access to multi-domain data urgently require new approaches for image information mining, multi-domain information management, and knowledge management and sharing (in support of information mining and training). This year's conference continues to focus on automation in support of applications and services for geospatial intelligence, for which Image Information Mining is of very high interest.
