ESIP UPDATE: November 14, 2016 

Good morning all – 

Another week and plenty of great ESIP events to look forward to.
First off, all you procrastinators–you know who you are–it is time right now to step up and volunteer to give a 5 minute talk at Ignite@AGU! If you've never done a lightning talk, you need to know it's a lot of fun. And if you've done one before, what's holding you back?  You can submit your talk here.

Nomination time for ESIP of the Year! You can self-nominate or give a shout out to another ESIP. 

We have a full agenda of breakout sessions for the Winter meeting, and will have some plenary talk announcements soon.

We will be in Bloomington, Indiana for the 2017 Summer Meeting. Details to follow.

And we are looking forward to seeing a lot of you at the AGU. You can stop by the booth or catch us at the town halls. If you want to do a demo at the booth let me know.

Remember, if there is anything you'd like to see included in next week's Monday Update, send it to Bruce Caron (brucecaron AT
