ESIP News and Events
Call for Sessions Open for July 2022 ESIP Meeting
We are excited to share that the session proposal portal is open for the July 2022 ESIP July Meeting to be held in Pittsburgh, PA. Submit session proposals by Friday, April 29.
Our top priority for this meeting is to provide an engaging and exciting experience in person where the ESIP community can gather and reconnect together in Pittsburgh. Standing up a robust, in-person gathering at the same time as an effective, interactive virtual meeting is beyond our current resources. Our focus will be first on the in-person meeting and we will look to pilot some hybrid access in select sessions.
More details will be shared as they become available and reach out to email@example.com with questions.
New Guest Blog and USGS Feature Story
The Biological Data Standards Cluster co-wrote a guest blog for ESIP and cluster chair Abby Benson's work was highlighted in a USGS Feature Story. Read “A Primer for Data Managers” on ESIP's new blog Merge at esipfed.org/merge, where we will be gathering and sharing more community stories and ESIP news.

New Open Source Science Transformation Cluster Kickoff (3/31)
Are you interested in helping drive the transformation to open-source science (OSS)? The newly initiated Open-Source Science Transformation cluster aims to develop and build a broad community around OSS, yielding a Champions of OSS community that is inclusive and equitable. We envisage creating a robust community, equipped with best practices and toolkits that are readily translatable, transferable, and shared broadly amongst ESIP stakeholders interested in embracing OSS. In preparation for the Year of Open Science (2023), the creation of this cluster is incredibly timely given the urgent need to amplify OSS that is accessible, inclusive, equitable, and reproducible, and guided by a vast array of stakeholder groups. Join the first telecon on Thursday March 31 at noon EST.
