Hi all,

Please find attached a proposed GeoSciML v3 abstract for 34th IGC - for comments please.  I have added a one-liner about submission to OGC.

The abstract is a severely pared-down version of the 400-word EGU conference abstract.  IGC limits are only 250 words and 1500 characters, although I have had discussions with the conference organisers here in Canberra about the very unrealistic mismatch between 250 words and 1500 characters.  The attached abstract is 241 words but is over 1700 characters - I think they forgot that scientists use big words.  I anticipate that the character limit may be amended on the conference website very soon.

Another issue is the author list.  The IGC have a 10 author limit.  As a result, I have already pared the author list a bit without losing agency representation but I might be forced to cull more.  Should we submit it as author = "CGI-IUGS Interoperability Working Group"?
