Hello Everyone,

We were not able to have a telecon meeting this month, but we do have an action item to work on.  Abstracts for the winter session are due by Oct. 31st.  (See details below concerning the theme and the process for submitting an abstract).  As a committee, is there a specific session we would like to host at the January meeting?  Please respond to the list if you would like to 1) contribute an idea and 2) if you would be interested in working on the session and 3) if you would like to take lead on the session.  I can work with those interested to develop an abstract if needed.

Thank you,


Message from Erin:

The Winter Meeting theme is: "ESIP Advancing Earth Science Information: From Climate Assessment to Information to Action". Some initial text and goals of the meeting are on the wiki. http://wiki.esipfed.org/index.php/Winter_2013_Meeting

During the month of October, please work with your collaboration areas to define sessions for this meeting. To submit a session abstract go to the ESIP Commons(commons.esipfed.org):

3.            Select Winter Meeting 2013 for event

4.            Continue filling out the form. Disregard date, location - those will be added when sessions are scheduled.

5.            Save the session and you will be directed back to the completed page with a yellow box at the top.
