						Hello All, 

						Just another reminder that registration is still ongoing for the ESIP Federation during its Summer Meeting, July
7-10 on the campus of UC Santa Barbara.  The ESIP Federation Meeting
Visioneers have coordinated an excellent program focused on Stewardship.  Registration is now
open and is available by clicking here. 
Meeting details are on the ESIP Federation website (www.esipfed.org/events), with evolving
agenda information on the ESIP Federation's meeting wiki (http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/July_7-10%2C_2009%2C_ESIP_Federation_Meeting%2C_Santa_Barbara%2C_CA)

registration deadline is May 29, just a few weeks away.  Housing options include dorm and
hotel possibilities.  Both lodging options have early deadlines (May 22
and 29 respectively) so please reserve early. Dorm rooms are reserved when you
register for the meeting but the single rooms have sold out and only double rooms
($191.40) are available.  However, booking a double room for single use
is possible ($382.80) and is still less than staying in a hotel.  The dorm
cost is inclusive of 4 nights' lodging and cannot be prorated.   

always, ESIP Federation meetings are participatory.  Many ideas are
floating around and we're encouraging all to put their topics onto the
wiki.  We continue to seek input into the meeting agenda, with
opportunities for you to offer ideas below.

								Propose a technical workshop session for July 7 - slots are almost
     full. (contact Karl Benedict with
     topic ideas)

								Demo your latest product or service in the
     first-ever ESIP Federation Technology Showcase for July 7. (contact Carol Meyer  to reserve a spot -
     slots almost full)

     a poster during the day-long poster session on July 8.

								Contribute to the Teacher Workshops running July
     8 and 9. (contact Margaret
     Mooney with workshop proposal ideas)

								Propose your own Open Meeting Day session for
     July 9 (Call
     for Sessions; Session
     Proposal Page).  This day is all about what you want to offer to
     your colleagues.

     are 4 tracks evolving this day - Data Preservation, Air Quality and
     Education Workshops and a separate track for anything technical that
     cannot be accommodated in the workshops on July 7.  There are still a number of sessions available for the open meeting day.   Use it to revive some past  working groups such as the Carbon group.  

								Think about your FUNding Friday project idea. If
     you missed last year's inaugural mini-grant competition, you will
     not be disappointed in the excellent project ideas that are offered up. (FUNding Friday

								New this year is a student mini-grant
     competition.  Check out the guidelines on the Student
     Competition wiki page.

look forward to seeing you in Santa
