IT & I ESIP Commons Review

Room: DUPONT
Session Lead(s): Ramachandran

Description: Over the years, ESIP wiki has served as a useful mechanism to capture knowledge and information. However, limitations of the ESIP wiki in providing a formal citable knowledge management system have led to the creation of the ESIP Intellectual Commons (iCommons).

The objectives of the ESIP iCommons are:

  1. Provide a knowledge repository to formally capture and publish all the information and knowledge generated as part of ESIP activities
  2. Provide a citation mechanism to acknowledge individuals and groups that generate new knowledge
  3. Provide a publication medium for information that cannot be printed elsewhere such as technical reports, use cases, education modules.

The objective of this session is two-folds. First, to apprise the ESIP community of the current status and capabilities of the ESIP iCommons. Second, to solicit feedback to shape this knowledge management system to best serve the ESIP community

ESIP Collaboration Areas: IT&I

Evaluation Workshop: A Framework for Project Evaluation

Room: CITY CENTER
Session Lead(s): Prados

Description: On day two, we'll work through a practical framework from the point of view of Public Value. In the most general sense, public value is linked to individual and societal interests and to the institutional forms and actions of government.

The CTG Public Value Framework uses the concept of public value to help government and those that work with government understand the tangible and intangible values that information can provide to multiple and often diverse stakeholders. The purpose of this workshop is to provide earth science information researchers and government practitioners with tools and strategies to help them better understand the value that the information they work with can or is providing to their various stakeholders. During the workshop, participants will learn about existing CTG methods and tools and how they can be used to help support the design, implementation, and evaluation of earth science information projects and ensure that the value these projects can provide is identified, communicated, and assessed. Workshop sponsored by the Decisions Cluster and conducted by Brian Burke, CTG at SUNY Albany and Dan Ferguson, University of Arizona. ESIP Collaboration Areas: Decisions
Expertise Level: Beginner

Room: MT. VERNON
Session Lead(s): Hua, Lynnes

Description: In this joint Earth Science Collaboratory (ESC) and Discovery Cluster session, we will discuss and plan the direction of the Discovery Cluster for the coming year. With multiple Earth science data centers already implementing these Discovery services, a forum is needed to discuss planning, interoperability, community process issues for the Discovery services. We will also discuss how Discovery can contribute to the ESC vision.

This session will tentatively focus on other topics to push forward on. A. Draft DCP-3: Where do we go from here? (25-min)
B. Faceting and Custom Fields Discussion (25-min)
C. Some Lessons Learned from Apache Solr-based Faceting (10-min)

Description: Earth Science Collaboratory Charrette* We will begin to outline the feature list for the Earth Science Collaboratory. As a starting point, we will look at some desired features coming out of the EarthCube Charrette, asking questions like: is this appropriate for ESC, who benefits and how do they benefit? We will also entertain feature requests unique to the ESC. *A charrette is a collaborative design session: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charrette ESIP Collaboration Areas: ESC
