PDF version of the Schedule and Call for Presentations

Call for Presentations:    The workshop will consist of online presentations in the form of either a slide show (Powerpoint) or PDF “poster”.   Presenters will display and describe their presentations using WebEx and the WebEx chat interface, so that attendees can read the description as they view the slides or poster.   Presentations will be 20 minutes with 10 minutes for questions (submitted via chat).
Submission deadline for presentation abstracts is September 4, 2012.
Presentations do not have to consist of original (unpublished) research – the goal of this workshop is to share how Giovanni has contributed to scientific research in many different fields of Earth science. A description of a published paper or meeting presentation is acceptable.
The chats will be logged, so that participants unable to attend a live session will be able to read the presentation description and question-and-answer session.
