Global Organization for Earth System Science Portal Meeting Agenda


Second Global Organization for Earth System Science Portal Workshop: Web Portal Framework Design/Implementation 

Date:     Monday, September 29th and Tuesday, September 30th, 2003

Location: Central Laboratory of the Research Councils, Daresbury Laboratory, England
	  (See web site for Maps and Directions: http://www.gfdl.noaa.gov)

Purpose:  This second GO-ESSP Workshop will focus on metadata and web portal designs 
          for earth-centric data sets. This design will implement a flexible 
          framework that will allow interoperability between front-end and back-end 
          software components. We will also focus on building an ESP Design 
          Document to support these activities. Please think about which of the area 
          of the design document you would like to contribute toward.

Workshop Day 1:
  Each presenter will give a detailed presentation of what they have 
  accomplished since the last ESP workshop for metadata and designing a 
  web portal interface. That is, presentations will range from metadata 
  schemas, and harvesting to web portal design details and search engines.

Workshop Day 2:
  Summarize the work and come to a consensus on what needs to be done. 
  List the projects that will be needed and come to an agreement on who 
  will be responsible for each project in relationship to the design document. 
  Pose timelines on each task assigned for the design document and follow-
  up with access grid meetings to follow progress.

Workshop Summary:
  A detailed discussion will take place on what has been accomplished since 
  our last meeting highlighting our milestones and achievements. A detailed 
  summary will follow the workshop describing work needed to meet new 
  milestones, tasks and assignments, time lines, and continued 
  communications. 

  All presentations presented at this workshop will be included in the 
  workshop summary.
