First information circular: Virtual Globes Scientific Users Conference
The conference hopes to foster community-building among earth scientists and educators interested in virtual globes technology--including the compilation and dissemination of associated expertise and resources.
The program will be comprised of 15-minute talks, interactive posters, and several plenary invited talks. For the 15-minute talks and posters, abstracts are limited to 500 words.
The conference website, including a link for abstract submission, is: http://www.earthslot.org/vgconference/
At last month's AAG2006 Virtual Globes sessions, I was pleased to have Dr. Nolan participate as an invited panelist. In fact, while I was organizing the AAG activities, he provided me a great deal of helpful guidance, as well as, introductions to many of the technology developers. This upcoming Boulder conference undoubtedly will be quite excellent--particularly for the geoscience and education community.
