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. The AHM Organizing Committee is busy planning poster sessions, plenary and domain-science talks. Breakout sessions and "Introduction to EarthCube" events for people new to the community are also in the works.
In addition, EarthCube is offering grants to defray travel costs for early-career scientists. The deadline these grants is March 15, 2017, so visit the EarthCube Early Career Travel Grant page for details and application instructions.
