In June 2012, the International Long Term Ecological Research (ILTER) Network hosted a workshop in Shanghai, China for representatives from the US, China, Israel, UK, Korea, Taiwan, Japan to examine tools to facilitate data exchange across the 40 member networks. SBC information manager, Margaret O'Brien, was invited to present SBC work on the Extensible Ontology for Observations (OBOE), with examples of how ontological systems can be applied to multilingual searches. This work is supported by the Semtools project (NSF/DBI). O'Brien is also a participates in the LTER IMC working group developing a controlled vocabulary with SKOS, which was also featured at the workshop. Other participants from US LTER sites were Kristin Vanderbilt (SEV), John Porter (AND), (SBC), and Don Henshaw (AND).
