Physical Samples in the Digital Era (public)
Convener: Kerstin Lehnert 
Thu, 11 Apr, 15:30–17:00  / Room R10

We invite anybody who is concerned with physical samples collected in the Earth Sciences and how to best integrate these samples with digital data and information infrastructure. The objective of this meeting is to discuss standards and best practices for the registration and identification of samples, their documentation, and their curation to ensure discovery, access, and preservation of both the physical samples and of the virtual representation of the samples in digital data systems.
