GEO ADC Showcases: A Discussion and Selection Forum

The GEO Committees have been asked by the Task Force for the Preparation of the Minsterial Summit to submit together up to a total of ten proposals for Showcases to be featured at the Ministerial Summit in 2010. The Task Force gave some guidance on the Showcases. These Showcases might, for instance, include achievements that are regional in nature (e.g., Asia Water Cycle), one overarching achievement on capacity building, and achievements on high-profile issues (e.g., the global carbon monitoring system)

The ADC invites submission of proposals for Showcases. Proposals selected by the ADC will be submitted to the Task Force for consideration. Deadline for the submission of proposals to the ADC is tbd, but a submission as early as possible is recommended.

All submitted proposals are made available through this web page immediately after submission for comments from the ADC members. The ADC members are invited to comment on the proposals and to enter an e-mail discussion.

Note that proposals not selected by the ADC or the Task Force as one of the few Ministerial Showcases will later be considered for display during the Exhibition and/or for Publication in the new Full Picture table-top book.

ADC-supported showcases should include a significant architecture and/or data-related components and illustrate the value-added contribution of GEO in general and the ADC in particular. Criteria for the selection of showcases by the Task Force are available here.
