  Information - ESSI10 The Service Oriented Architecture approach for Earth and Space Sciences

Event Information
Earth scientists are engaged in integrating knowledge stemming from different disciplines about the constituents parts of the complex Earth system with the objective of understand its properties as a whole. This requires the integration of different discipline information systems, characterized by diverse protocols and interfaces, different data policies and security levels. Advanced e-infrastructures (aka cyber-infrastructures) will support the formation and operation of an Earth System Science Community, based on multidisciplinary knowledge integration.

Developing an advanced enabling infrastructure to facilitate the Earth system analysis implies to scale from specific and monolithic systems (data-centric) towards independent and modular (service-oriented) information systems.

The Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) approach and consequent infrastructures (e.g. Internet, GRID, etc.) now provide the basis for making significant steps towards these platforms.

This session aims to present and discuss relevant topics and open issues dealing with SOA for the Earth and Space Sciences. These include, but are note limited to:

1)An holistic SOA approach for the Geosciences?
2)Heterogeneous Vs homogeneous SOA approaches;
3)Beyond discovery and access services;
4)Which semantic services for the Earth and Space Sciences?
5)Is it possible a Geosciences model Web?
6)Harmonization of service architectures for Geospatial Information and Earth and Space Sciences;
7)E-infrastructures (cyber-infrastructures) for scientific observations, measurements, coverages and features;
8)Secure scientific infrastructures.
