Collaboration Area Highlights

Soil Cluster: Guest Speaker on GLOSIS 

The ESIP Soil Ontology and Informatics Cluster is hosting a presentation and discussion on GLOSIS with Luis de Sousa. Join the presentation on Tuesday, April 19 at 3 p.m. EDT.

Open Science Cluster: Connect Data Through FAIR and CARE 

The Open Science Cluster is starting a series of webinars looking at open science through different lenses and projects. On Tuesday, April 25 at noon EDT, Andrea Thomer from the University of Arizona will present “Past Global Change Research: Connecting Data Systems and Practitioners through FAIR and CARE practices.” 

The session will cover how to develop communities of practice around the open science principles FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) and CARE (Collective benefit, Authority to control, Responsibility, and Ethics).

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. 

Missed last week's session? Catch the recording of “Evolution of open source geospatial python” with Tom Kradilis on ESIP's YouTube channel.

Next month: Join Waldo Jaquith for the weal and woe of buying software for government agencies. 

ESIP Meeting Announcements

92 days until the ESIP Meeting!

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 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:
