Summer 2011 Meeting Preservation

From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

Preservation and Stewardship Use Case Workshop

Convener: Curt Tilmes
Tuesday 1:30PM - 5:00PM

In this session, we will refine and elaborate various scenarios in the life cycle of earth science data. We are taking two approaches -- First, trying to categorize and explore the breadth of scenarios, from individual scientists working and publishing themselves, to networks of citizen scientists, to industrial processing in large scale satellite missions. Second, we will select one or two and explore them in great detail throughout the life cycle.

From these scenarios, we will extract requirements for the other activities: identifiers, citations, provenance and context content standard, ontology, etc.

Provenance and Context Content Standard Breakout

Convener: Rama Ramapriyan
Thursday 10:30AM - 12:00PM

The purpose of the session is to discuss progress made in developing the Provenance and Context Content Standard proposed during the Winter meeting. Following a brief status presentation, the content items developed so far will be discussed in detail. Inputs will be solicited from the group regarding content items, their representation, and their appropriateness/adequacy to satisfy the needs of future users. Also, next steps in the standard development process will be identified.

Citations Breakout

Convener: Mark Parsons
Thursday 1:30PM - 3:00PM

We will review recent advancements and the state of the art in citations, including a review of the GeoData 2011 meeting and GEOSS Science and Tech Committee citations standards.

We will also have a "citation writing workshop" -- bring your data set and we'll help you figure out how to cite it. This may also contribute to our understanding of more difficult citation needs that we will need to explore.

Preservation Ontology Breakout

Convener: Hook Hua
Thursday 3:30PM - 5:00PM

A joint session across the Semantic Web and Preservation and Stewardship Clusters aimed at applying the semantic web technologies to the interoperability needs of preservation and stewardship. We will start with a brief presentation on popular provenance models (e.g. Open Provenance Model) and ISO metadata standards. Then we will do some "concept mapping" to build on the preservation use cases in the context of these standards.

Preservation and Stewardship Cluster Planning Breakout

Convener: Curt Tilmes, Ruth Duerr
Friday 1:00PM - 2:30PM

We will review a brief status of the various active activities in the cluster and discuss future plans and milestones for the cluster. Those activities include: Data Stewardship Principles, Identifiers, Citations, Provenance and Context Content Standard, and Preservation Ontology.
