We will give a presentation on scientific data publication, broadly applicable to the Earth Science community but with examples related to marine geoscience and geochemistry. The workshop will include demos of tools for data publication from the IEDA data facility. Bring questions, or send them to us at

When: Wednesday, 11 December, 12:15-1:15 pm. To reserve a lunch please register by Nov. 27.
