2022 July ESIP Meeting
ESIP Meeting Culture – new blog post
In her blog post on ESIP meeting culture, ESIP Executive Director Susan Shingledecker shares how the staff, Board, and Meetings Committee used the ESIP Community Participation Guidelines to shape decisions about COVID-19 protocols, alcohol, and returning to in-person gatherings.
Watch for updates in Sched emails, Slack, and Qiqochat
We will be focused on #ESIP2022 this week. Registered participants who create a Sched account can make their own agenda and will receive daily email updates. Virtual attendees will use the Qiqochat platform. Please refer to you Know-Before-You-Go email, the FAQs on esipfed.org/meeting, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
#EarthScienceData photo shoot
We are excited to have a professional photographer, Chris Marsicano from Fire and Mischief, joining us at the ESIP Meeting. A Zoom screencap only does so much to convey a sense of community, so Chris will gather images of ESIP in action on Wednesday and Thursday.
As a part of that, we will also do a creative photo shoot on Friday, July 22 at 6 p.m. in Point State Park. With the golden hour, some ESIP-stickered laptops, circuit boards and other props, we will be looking to create a visual connection between natural elements, technology, and community. The event is after the meeting but if anyone is around and wants to volunteer (or has ideas for cool props to include), then email ESIP's Communications Manager Allison: email@example.com.
ESIP News and Events
No ESIP Update next week
We will be resting and catching up on other projects following the ESIP Meeting. But there are several important timelines to keep in mind:
SWEET Release: Semantic Web for Earth and Environmental Terminology (SWEET) ontology v3.5.0
SWEET is a highly modular ontology suite with >11,000 concepts in 225 separate ontologies covering Earth system science. The most significant change is that the group added multiple definitions from other well known vocabularies to SWEET classes.
SWEET resources on sweetontology.net are also available as linked data via the ESIP Community Ontology Repository.
