Hi ESIP-All and ESSI -

*Apologies for the cross post.* I'm writing to share information on the
first ever *Ignite at AGU event happening Wednesday, December 7, from 6-8 at
the San Francisco Marriott Marquis*. AGU’s annual meeting, with dozens of
parallel sessions, provides a great forum for in-depth presentations and
discussions for attendees. Yet due to AGU’s size, people sometimes find it
hard to meet new investigators and get exposed to new research areas.

Ignite <http://ignite.oreilly.com/>, a concept created by O’Reilly Media, is
a forum of short, fast paced, thought-provoking talks, where presenters get
five minutes and 20 slides to make their point. Sonoma Technology, Inc.
(STI) and the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) are partnering to
bring the Ignite approach to AGU. Ignite at AGU represents a new effective way
to communicate diverse knowledge, engage younger scientists, and interact
across disciplines.

*We need presenters! *The theme for the 2011 Ignite at AGU meeting will be
focused on applied Earth science. Presentations should address the Earth
Science goals in the 2010 Science
NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. More importantly, it creatively
addresses the Science Mission Directorate’s need to “bring together members
of the scientific communities relevant to NASA in order to expose
investigators to new subject areas." This is not your regular AGU
presentation - push the limits, be creative, outrageous and inspiring. *Submit
a deck of no more than 10 slides to me, erinrobinson at esipfed.org, by
November 10th to throw your hat in the ring. Decisions on the final slate of
talks will be made by Nov. 20th. *

I know that many of you would give a great Ignite talk, so please be brave
and step up! Email if you have questions. For more details see the Ignite @
AGU <http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Ignite@AGU> web page.

Thanks for your consideration. Feel free to forward on to colleagues that
may be interested.
