ESIP Meetings

ESIP a community of science, data, and information technology professionals who come together across institutional and domain boundaries to solve critical Earth science data challenges. Through this work, ESIP improves Earth science data management practices and makes Earth science data more discoverable, accessible and useful to researchers, policy makers, and the public.

January Meeting 2022

 The 2022 ESIP January Meeting will be online in January 18-21. 

July Meeting 2022

The 2022 ESIP July Meeting will be in Pittsburgh, PA, starting July 18.

About Our Meetings

We hold two meetings each year, one in January and one in July. The winter meeting focuses on high-level policy issues. The summer meeting moves around the country and is technical in nature.

These two meetings offer our partners, community members and anyone else interested in discussing Earth science data concentrated blocks of time to work collaboratively on issues of interest to the entire Earth science data community. Each meeting has a theme; past themes range from evaluating the impacts of data to defining data and information quality.

Who Attends?

ESIP meetings are open to anyone interested in discussing and learning more about Earth science data and typically draw around 300 attendees from diverse Earth, space and environmental science backgrounds.

Attendees include Earth science data and information technology practitioners, researchers representing a variety of scientific domains that include land, atmosphere, ocean, solid earth, ecology, data and social sciences, science educators, and anyone working in science and technology-related fields advancing Earth science information best practices.

What To Expect

Our meetings cover current trends, problems, and emerging issues in the field in a mix of plenary talks, breakout sessions, poster presentations, technical workshops, networking, and special events.

Attendees address emerging and persistent topics in Earth science data, gain exposure to new technologies and emerging concepts, advance their knowledge, develop new collaborations and ideas, and meet colleagues from diverse institutions and disciplines.
