Event banner that reads: ESIP Meeting, Burlington, Vermont

ESIP Meetings are where Earth science data and computing professionals gather.

ESIP Meetings are collaborative, community-driven events that bring together the Earth science data community. They happen each January and July. When you find your people, meeting with them hardly feels like a meeting.

To explore complex topics, share work from across our 30+ Collaboration Areas, and pull in the latest updates on new technology and tools, ESIP Meetings rely on interactive formats. Collaboration and connections are key — from plenaries to breakout groups, from wide strategy discussions to focused do-a-thons.

General Info: 2023 July ESIP Meeting

ESIP is a home for Earth science data and computing professionals. Our meetings are community-driven. Our sessions bring together the community for hands-on, interdisciplinary deep dives.

Join the most innovative thinkers & leaders around Earth science data as we work together on ’Opening Doors to Open Science.’

Sign up for the weekly ESIP Update to stay in the loop.

About Our Meetings

We hold two meetings each year, one in January and one in July.

These two meetings bring together ESIP partner organizations and community members. Often, leaders from ESIP clusters and committees organize sessions. But anyone interested in Earth science data is welcome. 

Each meeting has a theme, ranging from the big-picture impacts of data to the nitty-gritty of new tools and information quality.

Who Attends ESIP Meetings?

ESIP meetings are open to anyone interested in Earth science data.

There are about 300 attendees from the Earth, space, and environmental sciences.

Many attendees are information technology professionals, teachers, and researchers. Their scientific fields include atmosphere, ocean, solid earth, ecology, data science, and social sciences. Some attendees join monthly telecon calls in ESIP's 30+ Collaboration Areas.

Find your people in the Collaboration Areas.

What To Expect

Our meetings cover current trends, problems, and emerging issues in Earth science data and information. There is a mix of plenary talks, breakout sessions, poster presentations, technical workshops, networking, and special events to: 

  • talk about emerging and persistent topics
