The Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF) is an international collaboration for the software that powers most global climate change research, notably assessments by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It supports the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP), and the Energy Exascale Earth System Model (E3SM).
ESGF manages the first-ever decentralized database for handling climate science data, with multiple petabytes of data at dozens of federated sites worldwide. A big part of its success can be attributed to the collaborative nature of the project. International teams have come together to build a federated data management system to enable climate scientists achieve scientific breakthroughs. The teams meet annually to share achievements, discuss challenges, and listen to user requirements.
We would like to invite you to submit an abstract and register for the 9th Annual Earth System Grid Federation Conference that will be held in Toulouse, France on March 23-25.
The main theme of the conference will be “Future ESGF architecture”. Topics of interest include:
In addition, this year we invite the ESGF user community to submit abstracts that describe use cases and/or science requirements.
Several hotels are available in the town of Toulouse. Please book your accommodations sooner rather than later as there are a limited number of rooms available at each of these properties.
ESGF F2F Conference attendees are invited to attend the IS-ENES General Assembly, taking place on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 25th through Friday, March 27th, noon. Registration is required and must be completed by February 21st. This workshop is fully funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 824084. Thus, there is no registration fee.
