ESIP UPDATE: New Cluster: Earth Science Pre-prints: ESIP providing open community governance and guidance. In partnership with the Center for Open Science.

Register for the Summer Meeting, and forget the poster–> Research as Art is here! 

Happy Monday ESIPers – 
Community PROV Challenge has officially begun! ESIP wants YOUR ideas on ways to improve the interoperability of W3C-PROV systems across agencies or institutions to enable a more complete picture of provenance. Read all about the challenge, rules and PRIZES here

How hot was it where you live. Let NASA show you.

Lots going on in and around ESIP this week! Keep up on all the action on Slack!
Also check out the new Job Opportunity Channel! If you are not already on the ESIP Slack team: here is your INVITATION.

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

Meeting News

Research as Art Call is OPEN
The Call for Entries is open. You can submit your artwork HERE. Once again at this year’s ESIP Summer Meeting we'll hold a Research as Art event (on the evening of Wednesday, July 26). Our goal is to encourage the ESIP community to use visual media to communicate their data and research; and to think about their research as an ongoing narrative that can be told through visual media. This event is about showing how the ESIP community uses data. You don’t need to consider yourself an artist in order to submit a piece. The idea is to have a range of entries that show the diversity of research done by members of our community, as well as their creativity and the impact of their work, in an engaging and accessible way. 

Registration for the ESIP 2017 Summer Meeting is OPEN
Early registration (through June 30, 2017) is $415 for members and $550 for non-members. After June 30, the registration fee rises to $515 for members and $650 for non-members. The student registration fee is $150 (This does not go up). A special one-day rate is available for $200. A full refund will be given until June 30. No refunds will be issued for canceled registration after June 30. Register here.

ESIP sUAS Data Management Workshop: Monday, July 24
In brief:

  • University of Indiana Bloomington
  • Monday 24 July, 9-5 (or until hackers decide they're finished)
  • Free, coffee and snacks supplied (signup here)
  • To talk and build amongst the communities working on developing standards for open science sUAS data (see flyer for presentation hack topic and projects)


Federation News

New Cluster: Earth Science Pre-Print
The Center for Open Science (COS) has recently developed a preprint infrastructure around their Open Science Framework.  COS has had initial discussions with ESIP regarding the creation of an Earth Science instance of their preprint software. COS would like to host a new preprint service for the Earth sciences with ESIP handling governance, advertising, and advisory roles. The new Earth Science Pre-print Cluster will help COS develop this preprint service. Cluster members will address topics such digital publication, indexing taxonomies, citation standards, advertising, and related issues surrounding shared governance and community building. After deployment of the preprint service the Cluster will serve as an overarching advisory group interfacing with COS, and the ESIP community, on the pre-publication of data and research in the Earth sciences.
Tom Narock is the interim Chair. Telecon schedule is TBD. Hop on the Cluster Slack Channel to find out more and get involved!  This Doodle poll has 4 time slot suggestions. Add your input to help arrange the first telecon.

Join the PROV Challenge! Don't just think it: share it! 
Your idea might change the data world! Do you have a problem with PROV? An idea to make it work better for your data? A notion just on the tip of your hippocampus? Don't just think it: share it! The Community PROV Challenge seeks to explore how community-based provenance and annotation capabilities enhance scientific integrity throughout the data lifecycle. To do this, the USGS has partnered with the ESIP Lab to find creative solutions to PROV challenges.
