*Apology for cross-posting*

Dear colleagues,

It' our pleasure to invite you to contribute an abstract to the AGU FM 2013, session IN032 Semantically Enabling Annotation, Discovery, Access, and Integration of Scientific Data. In our preparation of the session proposal the convening team considered vocabulary works are an essential part of the session, which is the work underworking by many members in the email list. And fore sure you are free to choose a topic that you feel better for the scope of the session.

Details of the session are as follows. Kindly note that the deadline for abstract submission is Aug 06, 2013.

SESSION IN032. Title: Semantically Enabling Annotation, Discovery, Access, and Integration of Scientific Data


Conveners: Brian Wilson, Xiaogang (Marshall) Ma, Tom Narock, Peter Fox

Abstract: Data providers are now publishing more metadata in more integrable forms, e.g. Atom/RSS 'casts', as Linked Open Data, or as ISO Metadata records. The existence of data collections and granules advertised via Web technologies, such as datacasts, available web services via service casts, and geophysical events with relevant datasets & images as event casts provides a great opportunity. The challenge now is to overlay semantics on this metadata world to support rich annotation, discovery/access and semantic integration while building bridges between older metadata technologies and new semantic RDF & OWL to support SPARQL querying and inference. We seek contributions on vocabularies, tools, approaches, and experience.

Kindest regards,
