The National Science Foundation EarthCube initiative is a community-driven project aimed at creating an integrated environment for the sharing of geoscience data and knowledge in an open, transparent, and inclusive manner. All members of the geoscience community are invited to participate in the 2017 EarthCube All Hands Meeting (AHM), to be held June 7-9, 2017 in Seattle, Washington.
The theme of this year's meeting is "Making Connections & Moving Forward." Since the first All Hands Meeting in 2014, this annual event has been a critical opportunity for community members to make connections, communicate advances, and help plan the future of EarthCube. This year's meeting will focus on domain researchers, while supporting discussions by technical and data science researchers. The goal is to help bridge the disciplinary divide by focusing on gaps in current implementations, and finding where communication between geoscientists and computer scientists can be strengthened to foster adoption and discovery of resources.
There will be Plenary & Domain Talks, Breakout Sessions, Poster Sessions, and special morning sessions for new members: EarthCube 101 and Workbench 101. These are new events for 2017 and will provide newcomers with some background on the mission, structure, and goals of EarthCube.
Deadlines for Early Registration (save $50) and Poster Abstract Submissions are 17 April 2017. See the meeting web site for details.
