Ignite talks are only five minutes long and use exactly 20 slides that auto-advance every 15 seconds. The aim is to inspire, share, and make connections — to ignite conversation. It is not your average research talk.

Presenters use humor, personal stories, vivid images, and clear communication. They leave the jargon in the poster hall. Ignite is a great refresher during the conference download at the AGU Fall Meeting.

The annual event is sponsored by NASA’s Earth Science Division and co-hosted with ESIP.

Can I join as an individual?

ESIP does not offer partnership to individuals, only organizations. However, participation is open to anyone who wants to attend ESIP Meetings, join Collaboration Area calls and projects, and be a part of our Earth science data community.

Do I have to officially join ESIP to participate in activities?

No, there is no formal membership required for individuals. You can jump into any activity that interests you, whether it’s contributing to a Collaboration Area, attending our next ESIP Meeting, or simply joining the conversation in Slack.

If you represent an entire organization and would like to join as an entity rather than an individual, please apply for Partnership.

How are ESIP programs funded?

ESIP is funded through cooperative agreements with NASA, NOAA, and USGS. We also rely on ESIP Meeting sponsorships to help underwrite the costs of our operations. Learn more about sponsoring us, or read our financials to understand how we operate.
