Volunteer to be a Data Expert for the Virtual Data Help Desk at GSA 2020, to be hosted during the week of GSA 2020 Connects Online (October 26th-October 30th, 2020). This event, which is a program of EarthCube, the GSA Geoinformatics & Data Science Division, and the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), connects researchers with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain to learn about skills and techniques that will help further their research and make their data and software open and FAIR. You can volunteer to take part in one or more of the following ways:

  1. Answer data questions (monitor Twitter feed and answer where you can)
  2. Share a recorded demo (share a brief recorded demo of a tool or resource, ideally <5 min)
  3. Share a one-pager about your tool or resource

To volunteer, please complete this brief form, as soon as possible by Friday October 9th, 2020. Learn more about specific options for participating here.

The Data Help Desk is happening virtually for the second time after several successful in-person events at professional meetings over the last few years at the AGU Fall Meeting, the Ecological Society of America Annual Meeting, the Ocean Sciences Meeting, and more. Don't miss this chance to help others with data-related questions and to demo your tool or platform!

*NOTE: You do not have to register for GSA Connects Online 2020 to participate in the Virtual Data Help Desk.*
