NOAA EDMW 2022 has ended

Envisioning the Future of the NOAA Data Enterprise

September 12-16, 2022


Thank you for your interest in the 2022 NOAA EDMW. The Workshop is over, but we’re excited to announce that the session recordings are available! Just click on a session, then under the Description section click on the "Session Recording Here" link. Be patient, it can take up to 20-30 seconds for the video to display.

The Workshop featured a diverse group of sessions and presentations that cover NOAA’s strategic goals. In addition, ‘Workshop Wednesday’ provided multiple opportunities to learn about techniques, tools, and experiences that help us achieve our data and strategic goals.

We would like to especially thank everyone who submitted sessions and abstracts! This workshop wouldn’t be possible without the great submissions from our colleagues!

New tools are being developed to make metadata authoring simple. Metadata must change and update with the new policies and practices to keep NOAA agile and future oriented. We entertain abstracts that present metadata processes and tools to update and modernize existing metadata to get it ready for the cloud and AI while considering existing metadata standards.
