Call for Sessions is Live (Due Nov 13)

We are excited to share that the call for sessions is open for the 2024 January ESIP Meeting! We look forward to gathering with you virtually for lively, in-depth discussions, demos, and presentations.

The 2024 theme is Grounded in Trust: Data Ethics Empower Collaboration. There are many paths and perspectives in this discussion. For example, we can explore the methodologies, metadata, and long-term stewardship that build trust in Earth science data, computing, and technology. Integrity and collaboration are two ESIP core values and we can share leading practices for effective teamwork.
