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.
