The ESIP Semantic Technologies Committee will be hosting a one day GeoSemantics Symposium. The event will be held at Bethesda North Marriott (the same location as the ESIP meeting) with the intention to bring together the geoscience community interest in Semantic Web, and more broadly Semantic Technologies, with the topic being Applications of Semantics and Ontologies in Earth Science. We’d like to fully leverage all of the semantic work happening in our respective communities, avoid duplication of effort, and work towards a broad community-endorsed path forward.
We seek broad community input and encourage non-ESIP members and members of other professional societies to attend. The event itself is free; however, attendees will be responsible for providing their own travel and lodging. The exact room within the Marriott is still being worked out and will be provided in future announcements. Also, suggestions for topics to be covered are welcome.
