ESIP Update: Registration for the July ESIP Meeting is open

“Opening Doors to Open Science” is our annual theme and registration is open. We are accepting session proposals through Monday, May 8.

ESIP Meeting Announcements

Registration is open!

We are excited to gather with you July 18-21 for the 2023 July ESIP Meeting in-person in Burlington and online everywhere. Early bird registration is now open:

Want to learn more about what makes up our registration rates? Read more in our guest blog from Executive Director Susan Shingledecker on successful hybrid meetings.

Send in your proposals by Monday, May 8

The session proposal portal is open through 11:59 p.m. PT on Monday, May 8.

Got an idea but need collaborators or a sounding board? Join Community Director Megan Carter on April 20 (4 p.m. EDT) and April 26 (11 a.m. EDT) for Open Office Hours.

Book your hotel

The easiest way to help ensure a successful hybrid meeting is to stay at the conference hotel: DoubleTree by Hilton, Burlington. When attendees choose to stay at other locations, this hurts our ability to meet our room block numbers and can cost ESIP additional fees out of pocket.

The room block is open now through Friday, June 24. Direct booking link:

Join the Next IT&I Rants and Raves

Rants and Raves are designed to get smart people to share insightful, provocative views of what's great and what's not about technology and interoperability in modern Earth science. 

Next up on Thursday, April 13: Tom Kralidis – Evolution of open source geospatial python.

Free and Open Source Software in the Geospatial ecosystems (i.e. FOSS4G) play a key role in geospatial systems and services. Python has become the lingua franca for scientific and geospatial software and tooling. This rant and rave will provide an overview of the evolution of FOSS4G and Python, focusing on popular projects in support of Open Standards.
