Workshopinvitation: Digital Twins of the Ocean Interoperability - Workshop Agenda

Workshop for projects related to Digital Twins of the Ocean technologies

May 30th, 2024, 0900 – 1530 Location:  Institute for Marine Research (IMR (HI)), Pynten, Nordnes, Bergen

Held in conjunction with (the day after) IMDIS 2024 in Bergen, May 27-29, 2024, IMDIS 2024 - Bergen (Norway), 27-29 May I
nternational Conference on Marine Data and Information Systems

Workshop Theme and Goals

The purpose of the workshop is to gather current projects that are working with Digital Twins of the Ocean technologies for a joint discussion on interoperability concerns and solutions (technical, semantic, organisational, legal interoperability). 

The focus of the workshop will be on how to plan for achieving interoperability between the results/operational infrastructures of the various projects and initiatives.  A starting point for this will be based on the related posters and oral presentations that will be given during the three days of IMDIS 2024.

Each project is requested to prepare a short presentation on interoperability points related to data/model representations and APIs/services they will use/offer. 

The target is to identify and consider results presented for the various IMDIS sessions that could be useful for the Interoperability of Digital Twins of the Ocean.

IMDIS 2024 session topics – oral and posters:

  • INFRA: Marine environmental infrastructures for observation data
  • PRODUCTS: Data products, information and knowledge
  • SERVICES: Data services and tools in ocean science
  • TECH: Technical developments for marine information and data management

Overall Agenda

The workshop will occur in four segments.
Short presentations per project/topic - 10 minutes – including time for QA/Discussions.
