One of the sessions taking place at the AGU Fall Meeting December 11-15, 2017 is entitled "Virtual Community Platforms and Data Tools for Enabling Geoscience Research and Education."
Effective research in the geosciences requires a combination of discovering, analyzing, managing, and publishing data. Community platforms and data tools are being developed to aid researchers, students, and educators in accomplishing these tasks so that they can better focus their efforts on addressing current scientific issues. Many tools are available online and can be accessed through services, thus creating Virtual Research Environments that enhance the sharing of data and tools. We solicit contributions that discuss successes and challenges in developing tools, applications, and platforms that enable data discovery, data sharing and publishing, and data management to support the next generation of research in geosciences.
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, August 2, 2017. You can learn more about the session and submit an abstract on the AGU Fall Meeting website.
