Telecons. Clusters. Partners.
We have a lot of new people on the mailing list, so we'd like to offer a crash course in ESIP collaboration areas*.
People pull together around specific topics in groups we call clusters. There are also committees people serve on and working sessions for specific projects. Each month, these collaboration areas hold a Zoom gathering, called a telecon, scheduled on the Community Calendar.
The words are more than their semantics (although Semantics + Ontologies are some of the great groups in our 30+ ESIP collaboration areas). As an organization of organizations, ESIP is officially a network of partner organizations working together to improve and seek opportunities in Earth science data. ESIP clusters, telecons, and meetings are open to everyone, whether or not they hail from a partner org.
