ESIP President, Peter Fox, was named an AGU Fellow! We also want to congratulate Dawn Wright, Esri, on being the 2015 Leptoukh lecture. The lecture will be Tuesday, Dec 15, 2:40-3:40, Moscone West 3014.
> Monday evening will feature a Conversation with DJ Patil, the Chief Data Scientist of the United States (in Moscone South room 104 at 615).
> https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm15/meetingapp.cgi/Session/10058 DJ was appointed to the White House in early 2015 and is responsible for helping shape US policies and practices around data and technology. DJ was previously the Chief Scientist at LinkedIn among other leading data and technology positions. We are looking for good questions. Please email me questions, if you have ideas.
> From Tuesday-Thursday afternoon at 330-430, there will be panel discussions in the exhibit hall as part of a “data fair” aimed at connecting researchers with repositories, data providers and facilities. ESIP will be featured on the Thursday afternoon panel - Making Data Matter: Improving Data Practices in the Geosciences. I am moderating a panel that will include Cyndy Chandler, BCO-DMO, Peter Fox, TWC-RPI, Ted Habermann, the HDF Group and Jeff de La Beaujardiere, NOAA. Each of the panelist represents an ESIP type - data centers, researchers, application developers and our sponsors. Further details on the program are here: https://fallmeeting.agu.org/2015/event/agu-data-fair This fair will also include a map of exhibitors that are data repositories and other information.
> Finally, Rebecca posted a shareable summary of ESIP activities at AGU and a crowdsourced Google Spreadsheet, to share all the sessions and activities that may be of interest. There is also a “data swirl” for the first time, connecting many sessions on data (see the Fall Meeting program).
> Looking forward to seeing you at the meeting!
