The User and the GEOSS Architecture XXV - Valencia

The User and the GEOSS Architecture XXV

Perspectives on GEOSS Architecture:
Principles and Implementation

Palacio de Congresos, Valencia, Spain

3 and 4 December 2008



This GEOSS workshop focused on the system-of-systems architecture that guides the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) in developing GEOSS.

The Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) aims to achieve comprehensive, coordinated and sustained observations of the Earth system.   An initial operating capability of the GEOSS Common Infrastructure has recently been established.  The workshop will review the architecture that guided the initial capability and will develop recommendations for future developments.  
The workshop will interest individuals and organizations from government, academia and industry sectors that seek to use GEOSS to increase access to Earth observations for their own use or for supporting their organizations system planning. Also, the workshop will interest individuals and organizations that seek to understand how their systems can contribute to GEOSS.

Registration at ICEO site for GEOSS Workshops

The workshop if free to attend, but attendance is limited based upon registration.
