2018 NOAA Environmental Data Management Workshop (EDMW)
Apr 23-24, 2018 - DoubleTree Hotel, 8727 Colesville Rd, Silver Spring MD 20910

The EDMW 2018 theme is "Improving Discovery, Access, Usability, and Archiving of NOAA Data for Societal Benefit." The workshop builds on past work by providing training, highlighting progress, identifying issues, fostering discussions, and determining where new technologies can be applied for management of environmental data and information at NOAA. All NOAA employees and contractors are welcome, including data producers, data managers, metadata developers, archivists, researchers, grant issuers, policy developers, program managers, and others. Attendance is limited to 200 persons because of venue constraints; non-NOAA collaborators will be able to attend on a space-available basis.

Registration is closed because capacity has been reached. Remote listening will be available; see links on each session description page.

  • Travel approval: We are still awaiting Group Travel Approval for NOAA federal employees.

  • Remote listening: We plan to have GoToMeeting (GTM) running in each room for remote listening. All presenters are expected to be on-site. We will strive to record the GTM sessions, and GTM will be stopped and restarted after each session in order to enable this. The GTM link for each session is listed on the session description page in the schedule.
  • Session descriptions and abstracts: Information about each session has been uploaded to this site. The session description page includes session chair name, speaker names, presentation titles, and duration. A PDF with the full abstract of each presentation has been uploaded for each session.
