 USGS National Center Auditorium
 March 21-23, 2006
 http://www.cr.usgs.gov/simw/
 Registration deadline:
– Tuesday, March 7, 2006
 Registration via website email.
Workshop Purpose
 Addresses USGS’s Scientific Information
Management (SIM) challenges
 Invitees: Bureau programs and projects,
other DOI bureaus, and other organizations
 Present and discuss problems, approaches,
and solutions for
– data collection, semantics and metadata, data
rescue, storage, archiving, visualization, mining,
information discovery and exchange,
interoperability, and others
Workshop Goals
 Bring together, for the first time,
representatives of major USGS efforts
address challenges in managing scientific
data and information,
 Discover common needs and goals; and
 Provide a forum in which projects or
programs facing similar problems can meet,
share information and experience, and
explore potential future cooperative efforts.
Anticipated Workshop
 An initial compilation of needs, tools, and best
practices … made available to USGS programs and
 Recognition of existing SIM groups or "communities
of practice" in the USGS
 Recommendations for community framework to
address additional SIM challenges;
 Methods for scientific information managers to
communicate with each other, exchange
knowledge, tools and approaches, and develop
collaborative efforts; and
 Identification of a suite of tools needed facilitate
communication within and between groups or
