Global Organization for Earth System Science Portals (GO-ESSP) 2015 Workshop

GO-ESSP Workshop 2015 "The challenges of providing portals for diverse user communities"

The first day will address targeted portals, that is portals for specific user communities such as for capacity building, regional portals and portals that support specific topics. Such portals will go beyond data alone and exploit expert knowledge, and are likely to benefit from interdisciplinary communities using effective collaboration tools.  The second day will address data standards, including the CF conventions, vocabularies and catalogues. The final day will focus on CMIP6 and the outlook for big data.

The venue holds about 70 people, so if the meeting is over-subscribed, the GO-ESSP committee will review and select based on abstracts provided. This year we intend to provide plenty of scope for interaction, and so will have a balance of talks and posters aimed at creating space for conversation. Poster presenters will be expected to provide a lightning talk.

Financial support in part by Infrastructure for the European Network of Earth System Modelling.
