Call for Participation (CFP) in 6th Phase of GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP)
This Call for Participation (CFP) seeks organizations to participate in the 6th Phase of the GEOSS Architecture Implementation Pilot (AIP-6). AIP develops and pilots new process and infrastructure components for the GCI and the broader GEOSS architecture. The main aims of AIP are to reach consensus on Interoperability Arrangements and to register operational components and services that carry forward into persistent operations of GEOSS.
This CFP invites GEO Members and Participating Organizations to:
Increase Societal Benefit Area (SBA) use of GEOSS resources by end-users
Increase the availability of GEOSS resources
Focus on benefits and usability for Developing Countries
Strengthen previous GEO results and technical achievements
To be most effective, organizations responding to the CFP should plan to fully participate in the Pilot development activities beginning with the Kickoff Workshop on 28 & 29 March 2013.
Responses to the CFP are requested by 15 March to support planning for the Kickoff Workshop. This CFP will remain open for the duration of AIP-6.
Discussion and clarification of the CFP and the initiation of AIP-6 will be the topic of weekly teleconferences. Agenda and logistics for these teleconferences are posted at http://www.ogcnetwork.net/AIPtelecons.
The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) provides leadership in AIP-6. The Point of Contact for the AIP initiative is the OGC’s Director, Interoperability Program, Bart De Lathouwer, firstname.lastname@example.org.
