The American Meteorological Society's Board on Data Stewardship will be organizing sessions on topics related to Data Stewardship at the 93rd AMS Annual Meeting, which will take place 6-10 January 2013 in Austin, TX.
As in previous years, the Board will be partnering with the Program Committee for the Conference on Environmental Information Processing Technologies (EIPT, formerly known as Interactive Information Processing Systems, IIPS) and the Annual Atmospheric Science Librarians International (ASLI) Conference. Presentations on data stewardship topics will be a great fit with the overall theme of the 93rd AMS Annual Meeting, "Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections."
Those interested in any aspect of data stewardship and management are encouraged to submit an abstract to the 29th Conference on Environmental Information Processing Technologies. Abstracts on topics such as data discovery, access, management, analysis, visualization, citation, sharing, models, standards and conventions, and archival, curation, and long-term preservation are especially encouraged.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 1 August, 2012. Further details on the abstract submission process and other information about the 29th EIPT Conference and the AMS Annual Meeting are available at the 93rd AMS Annual Meeting web site.
