AGU’s Earth and Space Science Informatics Focus Group (ESSI) is now accepting nominations for the 2014 Leptoukh Lecture. 

The goal of the Leptoukh Lecture is to recognize the awardee’s research, educational, or other accomplishments and the Union impact of his/her work. Advances in computation, instrumentation, and data handling facilitate many domain science advances within the Union. This lecture highlights the enabling capabilities of informatics as well as accomplishments of individual scientists. Thus, this lecture aims to raise awareness of the often-overlooked computational and data advances that enable breakthroughs in domain science, as well as foster exceptional individuals to make continued contributions in informatics and data science.

The Leptoukh Lecture is named in honor of the late Dr. Greg Leptoukh from NASA/GSFC. Greg was an Earth scientist who was very active in the informatics community. He was involved in many projects related to data quality and data provenance. Greg’s passing in January of 2012 was a loss to the Earth science and informatics communities.


The only requirements are that nominees must 1) be a member of the AGU and 2) have a first or second affiliation with AGU Earth and Space Science Informatics Focus Group. There are no educational or professional requirements for this award, e.g. Ph.D., post-doctoral experience, etc. No one individual may receive the award more than once.

Nominations should include a nominating letter, at least two letters of support, and, if available, the nominee’s CV. All materials can be sent to Tom Narock at tnarock at marymount.edu and they will be distributed to the nomination committee. Nominations will be accepted thru April 1, 2014. 

The winner will be announced mid-May. In addition to a certificate of recognition, the winner will be invited to give a lecture on his/her work at the Fall AGU Meeting in San Francisco.
