Virtual Globes Conference only ten days away

I just read the Virtual Globes Scientific Conference agenda, and it looks like a fine program: a day of introductory talks on software, a day of user talks with a panel, and a third day of tutorial/demonstrations. The conference, organized by the Matt Nolan and the EarthSLOT team, will be held July 10-12, in Boulder, Colorado. See the schedule and get details at the conference website.

Since no one in our UCSB globes group will be able to attend, hopefully we'll receive a full report from a geoblogger or other attendee!

On an unrelated note, UCSB Geography just announced the hire of Dr. Martin Raubal to the faculty -- a fine addition to the GIScience program.
