[galeon] ESSI sessions at EGU General Assembly, Vienna, Austria-19-24 April 2009

Hi all,

This is a reminder that the deadline for submission of abstracts for this 
year's EGU General Assembly is January 13.  As you may have heard, Earth and 
Space Science Informatics (ESSI) is now recognized as a division of the EGU.  
There are 16 ESSI sessions proposed for this year's meeting which takes place 
in Vienna, Austria-19-24 April 2009. The note below from Linda Miller points 
out several ESSI sessions that may be of special interest to our community.

It would be great to have a lively GALEON participation at these meetings as we 
did last year.
