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. -- Ben
