Introduction

The Winter 2007 ESIP Federation meeting structure continues to reflect the technical focus of previous Winter meetings, but with an explicit emphasis on identifying specific technical capabilities within the Federation that may be applied to clearly defined problems developed by the Federation's Application clusters.

The featured technology tracks for the meeting consist of:

  • Metadata Requirements
  • Semantic Technologies
  • User Interface/Visualization
  • Web Services Chaining

Applications of these technologies with be identified for the following application areas:

  • Air Quality
  • Coastal Management
  • Disaster Management
  • Ecological Forecasting
  • Public Health
  • Water Management

More detailed information about the content for the technical breakouts for each track may be found in the following sections.

The general structure for the technical breakouts is as follows:

  • Wed. 1/3/2007, 3:45-5:45. Demonstrate existing state-of-the-art of technology teams within the Federation. Engage in

discussion among application cluster and technology track attendees to begin process of linking technical capabilities with identified high-priority science/application needs. Ideally, the demonstrations will be brief, and leave sufficient time for dialog about future potential deployment of technologies into application areas. (Parallel Sessions)

  • Thu. 1/4/2007, 10:45-12:15. Define areas of collaboration and action items for after the meeting.

The final technical plenary will be on Thursday afternoon from 3:00-5:15 and will focus on any gaps in the technical or application areas covered in the meeting and seek to identify any additional factors that might prevent the development of successful solutions to the problems identified by the application clusters.

Technical Tracks

Metadata Requirements

Semantic Technologies

  • Tutorial on Semantic Web and Technologies
  • Presentation of NASA TIWG semantic web technical infusion roadmap
  • demonstrations

User Interface/Visualizations

This track will concentration on the emerging user interface technolgies that are available for presenting data, data services, and information derived from those data and services to end users. Technologies to be considered and demonstrated include:

  • Lightweight web-based interfaces
  • Heavy web-based interfaces
  • Customized COTS desktop applications
  • Custom desktop applications


Web Services Chaining

  • Service Chain Demonstrations
  • Working Session to "brainstorm" NEW Application Chains
 - Identify data sources & services, determine feasibility, construct a chain, etc.
 - Please come prepared with scenarios, ideas, or wish lists.
  • Live Construction of new service chains
 - What do you want to do?  Let's, just do it.
