  Information - TM06 Geoinformatics Town Hall at 2007 EGU Meeting (Envisioning the Future of Earth Science Data and Knowledge Access Through a Broad International Geoinformatics Collaboration)

Event Information
This town hall seeks broad community involvement to conceive a european, and eventually an international, geoinformatics effort to advance all aspects of research and education in earth and planetary sciences. Some short presentations followed by a moderated panel discussion will discuss the idea of a "Geoinformatics Alliance" which would be cross-society, cross-agency, cross-institution and cross-discipline, and would provide interested parties the opportunity to both formally and informally interact with other parallel initiatives. The agenda includes: Current status of Informatics Initiatives, Promoting European and International Informatics Conferences, Partnership among the Initiatives and the Relationship to Agencies and Societies, and Formulating an International Geoinformatics Alliance.
