> Dear Colleagues,
> Society is being transformed through the connection of data - from databases, archives, sensors and models - to analytics and other services. Working at the boundaries of computational and environmental sciences, breakthroughs in enviro-informatics multiply the convergence already underway in natural sciences. The web paradigm of Linked Data promises a breakthrough in linked, science-ready information from persistent sources. However, environmental data is scattered across many organizations in formal and informal ways, expressed using many standards, and also frequently depending on physical samples taken from the real world.
> To address these challenges, CSIRO is hosting a symposium "Linking Environmental Data and Samples" (29 May - 03 June 2017, Canberra, AUS).
> The symposium will bring together leading researchers in earth and environmental informatics, to establish the current state of the art in environmental science data publication and its use of modern web principles. The focus is on linking data, with a particular interest in the integration of physical samples with datasets based on these.
> Key topics include:
> - Science drivers for linking environmental data and samples
> - Community specific solutions (Marine geoscience and oceanography, Biodiversity, Earth Observation, Mineral Exploration)
> - Technical challenges in linked data and persistent identification
> - Social and organisational impacts
> - Elements of Open Science
> The design of the symposium will build on the experience of the highly successful Earth Science Information Partnership (ESIP) series that has been running for more than two decades in North America.
