Real Use of Standards and Technologies - Live Demonstrations
Convener: John van de Vegte  | Co-Conveners: Mattia Santoro , David Arctur 
 / Mon, 08 Apr, 15:30–17:00  / Room R14
 / Attendance Mon, 08 Apr, 17:30–19:00  / Red Posters

ESSI-RUST is a session where standards and technologies meet end users by demonstrating leading-edge and ready-to-use services and applications. Focus will be on (but not exclusively) OGC based services, data interchange encodings (GML, netCDF, HDF), CF-conventions and their use in applications and services. Future challenges in RUST will also be addressed.

The intended audience includes ESSI and all EGU divisions dealing with cross-domain information exchange that would benefit from use of standardized technologies. The session should act as catalyzer for:
- End users, becoming aware of existing technologies that are ready to use in their own domain.
- Developers implementing standards for services and applications that can benefit from demonstrated solutions.
- Standardization bodies, to consider refining standards based on real user experience.

Authors of accepted oral/poster abstracts will show results via live demonstrations on self-provided computers; internet connectivity is expected in the meeting room. Slide show (simulated) presentations may also be prepared in case of network difficulties.
