Hi ESIP folks,

As you are planning your summer meeting sessions, a limited amount of
funding is available to support external speakers for breakout sessions at
the ESIP Summer meeting.  Session organizers at ESIP Summer meetings may
request travel support for guest speakers at their sessions, provided these
speakers are recognized experts in their fields and are not associated with
an ESIP member organization - people who wouldn’t normally attend and who
will add real value to the session.  Total travel funding for this purpose
will not exceed $1000 per Committee, Working Group, Cluster or other
session organizer. In addition, full meeting registration for guest
speakers will be waived.

Travel funding requests should identify session and speaker(s); describe
speaker’s expertise, value to session, sponsoring cluster, working group or
committee, and ESIP as a whole; and relevance to the meeting theme.
Requests should also identify how the guest speaker’s expertise will be
shared with ESIP community members who are not able to attend the session,
for example:

   - Presentation will be recorded and posted on ESIP web site for others
   to access.

   Speaker or session organizer will post a blog about the session on the
   ESIP web site.

If more travel funds are requested than are available, funds will be
allocated to session organizers by lottery.  Meeting registration for up to
10 session speakers who do not receive travel support or who are local to
the meeting area may also be waived.

Session organizers should submit travel funding requests to
esip-ficom at lists.esipfed.org by April 30th.
