[idd-brasil] convite para participar da sessao ESSI na AGU 2010

Prezados Colegas,

Segue abaixo o convite para submeter trabalhos para a sessão ESSI da conferência da AGU em
Foz do Iguaçu.

Esta sessão, "Earth and Space Science Cyberinfrastructures", trata de sistemas e ferramentas para transmitir, processar e visualizar dados meteorológicos. É uma sessão voltada para as soluções técnicas
e o ferramental.

Em minha experiência trabalhando nesta área, percebo que existe a necessidade de uma maior interação entre os diversos atores e usuários que trabalham com esse tópico no País. Esta sessão é uma oportunidade para estabeler uma maior interação entre os diversos grupos e divulgar os trabalhos de cada um dentro da comunidade que efetivamente trabalha com o assunto.

Deixo pois a sugestão para que submetam trabalhos a esta sessão. Temos até o dia 31 de março
para a submissão dos resumos.

Atenciosamente,
Waldenio G. Almeida
CPTEC/INPE

Dear Colleague,

I am writing to invite you to participate in a session on "Earth and Space
Science Cyberinfrastructures: Data, Tools, Distribution, and Forecast
Systems" at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) 2010 Meeting of the
Americas that will be held on 08-13 August in Foz do Iguassu, Brazil.

The session, jointly convened by Dr. Glenn Rutledge (NOAA/NCDC, USA),
Dr. Luis Farfan (CICESE, Baja, Mexico), Waldenio Gambi de Almeida
(INPE/CPTEC, Brazil) and myself (Tom Yoksas, UCAR/Unidata, USA), is
intended to foster development of international research and education
collaborations focused on Earth and Space Science Informatics (ESSI)
in the Americas.

Our session is described as follows:

Title:

 Earth and Space Science Cyberinfrastructures: Data, Tools,
 Distribution, and Forecast Systems for International Collaboration

Description:

 The impetus for this session is the building of a stronger and
 broader space and Earth science cyberinfrastructure community through
 international collaboration. Papers on bio-geophysical, meteorological,
 ecological, remote sensing, and related intelligent and adaptive systems
 that include data collection, processing, and knowledge discovery are
 sought. Of particular interest will be presentations on data and tools
 that foster collaborations among research and education communities,
 and those that represent efforts aimed at advancing GEO-related tasks.

 We strongly encourage the participation of Latin American scientific
 and higher education organizations in this session specifically and
 in the conference in general.

Please note:

 - the deadline to submit an abstract is 31 March 2010 - 23:59 Eastern
   Standard Time (EST) or 03:59+1 GMT

 - all authors are required by the AGU to submit abstracts
