[galeon] EGU 2012 Earth and Space Sciences Informatics: Call for Abstracts: ONE WEEK LEFT !

Dear Colleague,

First of all *Happy New Year* !  (I apologize for any cross-posting).


Now that the Seasonal holidays are finished, there is only *one week left to submit an abstract *to the* 2012 EGU ESSI *conference (22-27 April 2012, Vienna).

This is a kind reminder of the deadline: *17th of January*. Please, visit http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2012/sessionprogramme/ESSI to select a session and submit your abstract.

For your convenience , I included my previous message describing the entire ESSI programme.


Thank you and best regards,

Stefano Nativi
(President, ESSI Division of EGU)



I am writing to invite you to submit an abstract to the forthcoming Earth and Space Sciences Informatics (ESSI) sessions of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly in Vienna, 22-27 April 2012. Please, see _
_http://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU2012/sessionprogramme/ESSI

Authors are invited to submit abstracts by *Tuesday 17 January 2012*.

Please, read /How to submit an Abstract at/: http://meetings.copernicus.org/egu2012/abstract_management/how_to_submit_an_abstract.html


This year we have two sub-programmes:

ESSI1 -- *Community-driven challenges and solutions dealing with Informatics

*ESSI2 -- *Multi-disciplinary challenges and solutions across the Earth and Space Sciences
*

For your convenience, I listed the sessions at the end of this message.


Recently ESSI promoted a Division medal: the *McHarg medal* (see _http://www.egu.eu/awards-medals/awards-and-medals/award/portrait-ian-mcharg.html_).

The new medalist: *Prof. Peter Fox* will be awarded in Vienna at the GA meeting !

_Please do not hesitate to contact me or one of the session conveners should you have any questions, and please feel free to forward this message to others who may be interested._


Best regards,

Stefano Nativi
