About the Upcoming Workshop 'Computing with Geologic Time'  (Chris Jenkins,
University of Colorado)

The Collaboration and Cyberinfrastructure for Paleogeoscience RCN group
will hold its second workshop on "Computing with Geologic Time" on November
7-9 in Boulder, CO. Chris Jenkins will give an overview of the motivations
and expected outcomes of the workshop, which will cover the broad themes of
Collecting and aggregating geologic time data, Computer Visualizations for
Geologic Time, Harmonizing across Geologic Time Parameters, Legacy data
resources, Data relationships: Seriation, Correlation, and Realizing and
Representing Uncertainties.

Ontology Design Patterns for Data Repository Integration (Pascal Hitzler,
Wright State University)

The integration of data for cross-repository information discovery remains
a significant challenge. Traditional integration methods using centralised
schemas are often insufficient if data volumes are high, topic coverage is
wide, and if data sources are distributed, diverse, and serve different
purposes. In this presentation, I will introduce the key ideas and
rationales concerning recent advances on this topic, which we are currently
applying within EarthCube to prominent data repositories in the ocean
sciences (see http://www.oceanlink.org). Our approach rests decisively on
the idea of using so-called ontology design patterns, which make it
possible to establish a flexible, modular, extensible, and scalable
metadata architecture for closs-repository discovery.
