ESIP members are a self-selected group of people pushing the edge of
Earth science informatics. According to the criteria laid out in 'The
Innovator's DNA' ESIP members score high on the innovation
At the Summer meeting we are devoting the second half of the plenary
session to showcasing innovative ideas and work. Present your idea in a 5
or 9 minute talk. One benefit of presenting at the ESIP meeting is
increased network density - it is hard to turn around without running into
someone who can help you move your idea forward. During lunch there will be
time and space to hash out your idea with others that are interested. Submit
a talk<https://docs.google.com/a/esipfed.org/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dGJNeWVFc2lKVmFhb0gtNktXZTcwaXc6MQ#gid=0>

DataONE Data Management Short Course, May 23-24
; DataONE is sponsoring a Data Management Short Course for junior
researchers based on content from the DataONE education modules and
the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) short course materials. The
goal of the short course is to encourage data literacy in junior
researchers, to pilot the DataONE and ESIP teaching materials in a short
course environment and to gain feedback from students on course content.
The course will cover all aspects of the data life cycle including data
management planning; data collection; quality control and assurance;
metadata and data description; data preservation; data discovery,
integration and analysis; and publication and citation. The course will be
taught by data management professionals and researchers from the Earth and
environmental sciences. We have extended the deadline for the DataONE Data
Management Short Course from Apr 14th to *Wednesday Apr 18th*, see summary
