AIP Phase 2 Kickoff Workshop

The AIP-2 Kickoff was held 25&26 September 2008 at the NCAR Mesa Laboratory, Boulder, Colorado, USA.

The Kickoff meeting is one of two times that the Pilot participants will meet face-to-face during a development phase. See Annex B of the CFP for a description of the Pilot Development Process. The objectives of the Kickoff Workshop are:

  • To begin the 2nd Development Phase of the Pilot.
  • To develop detailed plans for the 2nd Development Phase.
  • To develop specific collaboration and interoperability goals for the 2nd Execution Phase.
  • To develop the detailed design based on the Pilot Architecture.
  • To develop user scenarios suitable for directing development of Operational Exemplars.

Plenary Notes:  Q: Sporadic

Plenary Notes:

 Q: Sporadic services. How can services which represent sporadic events be persistent?

A: Archive services can persist such observations later, but if some sources of data are going to appear and disappear, this emphasizes the need to make registration / discovery of relevant data services and consistent service bindings integral parts of client and application components .
