Karen Wickett to present at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting
Dr. Karen Wickett will present "Representing Identity and Equivalence for Scientific Data" at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting. Taking place December 3-7 2012 in San Francisco, California, the AGU Fall Meeting is the largest worldwide conference in the geophysical sciences, attracting more than 20,000 Earth and space scientists, educators, students, and other leaders.
Wickett will address the issues of equivalence and identify in the representation of scientific data with two conceptual models developed out of the Data Concepts Group at the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS), University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. The presentation is based on a paper coauthored with CIRSS Doctoral Student Simone Sacchi, and CIRSS affiliated faculty members David Dubin and Allen Reneaer.
The American Geophysical Union (AGU), a Washington, DC-based international non-profit scientific association with more than 60,000 members, works on a broad spectrum of scientific topics that span all of the Earth and space sciences. Established in 1919 as a committee within the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, AGU was independently incorporated in 1972. Since its founding, the organization has remained dedicated to advancing Earth and space sciences.
