EarthCube welcomes those interested in the intersection between cyberinfrastructure and geosciences to join the 2022 EarthCube Annual Meeting to be held on June 14-16, 2022 in San Diego (La Jolla) at the Scripps Seaside Forum.

 

The heart of EarthCube is people. We put people first and do our best to recognize, appreciate, and respect the diversity of our global contributors. EarthCube welcomes contributions from everyone who shares our interests and wants to contribute in a healthy and constructive manner within our community.  Community Participation Guidelines

 

Meeting objectives:

  • Networking

  • Learn about important opportunities and sustainability plans on the horizon for EarthCube.

  • Share novel approaches used in geoscience research and the new tools, techniques, and data available to others as a result.

COVID precautions:

If conditions require us to switch to a virtual meeting, we will announce any changes by mid-April 2022. We will continue to monitor UCSD COVID policies and will plan accordingly.

Call for Posters, Oral Presentations and Demonstrations

   

 

As with many scientific meetings and conferences, these presentations will be the key communication platform.  The date/time of your presentation will be communicated to presenters upon acceptance. Please note: there will be a limited number of oral presentations.

The EarthCube community is soliciting contributions focused on the following subjects:

  • Science/tools enabled by EarthCube or with direct relevance to EarthCube’s mission

  • Broader outcomes that have used EarthCube tools (notebooks, workshops, courses)

  • Social and DEI impacts of EarthCube projects, from accessibility to equity

  • Results from Research Coordination Networks

  • EarthCube project sustainability plans or outcomes

  • Outcomes or related science/technology that would be of interest to the EarthCube Community.

Call For Notebooks

As scientific studies become more data intensive and software dependent, reproducibility principles and other factors increase the importance of making work such as reusable workflows, software, and data-access procedures citable. This importance is reflected in new academic journals, such as the Journal of Open Source Software (JOSS), whose peer reviewed articles highlight the software itself, and often can include executable notebooks (such as Jupyter, R Studio, etc.) In this spirit, EarthCube is issuing its 3rd Call for Notebooks as primary, peer-reviewed submissions to a digital proceedings for this year’s EarthCube Annual Meeting. Submitted notebooks should highlight a tool (i.e., software, service, library, dataset, standard), explaining and demonstrating interactively how the tool may be used to address a significant problem in geoscience. There will be two tracks. One track will be focused on submissions where the goal is describing scientific outputs. In this case, the novelty is based on the analysis being done and the scientific conclusions drawn. The other is on demonstrating new software and tools. Here the emphasis is on the new software and its use. 


Submissions will be peer reviewed in terms of their impact on geoscience research and overall usability. Reviewers will be members of the geoscience and cyberinfrastructure communities. Authors of accepted notebooks will have the opportunity to present their notebook at the EarthCube Annual Meeting and their notebooks will be published in an EarthCube digital proceedings for others to discover, use, and cite.

 

Notebook abstracts are due March 8, 2022. Final notebooks are due on April 15, 2022.

 

Guidelines:

1) Submissions should provide a Jupyter, R, or Matlab notebook and use the EarthCube template in Python 3 (an example can be viewed here; please note that the final version of the Python template will be provided in early March, along with R and Matlab templates if needed.)

2) Authors should share their notebook in a self-contained runnable environment (e.g., use of Binder or Jupyterhub is strongly recommended for Jupyter submissions), so that reviewers and the community can run the notebook without having to install required libraries locally. We strongly suggest you ask a colleague to review your notebook before you submit it.

3) Submissions should take the form of an abstract (due March 8) and URL (due April 15) to a repository containing the notebook.

Notebook Organizing Committee:

  • Lisa Tauxe - UCSD (Chair)

  • Donata Giglio - University of Colorado, EarthCube TAC

  • Daniel S. Katz  - University of Illinois - EarthCube Office

  • Kenton McHenry - University of Illinois - EarthCube Office

  • Jessica Scheick - U of New Hampshire

  • Lynne Schreiber - SDSC, UCSD - EarthCube Office

  • Hugh Shanahan - Royal Holloway, University of London

Call for Working  Sessions

  

 

We welcome submissions for working sessions (formerly called breakout sessions). Working sessions may consist of mini hack-a-thons, do-a-thons, work-a-thons, or other kinds of sessions in which the EarthCube community is engaged to discuss particular questions, provide feedback on new technologies, or evaluate new frameworks for data policies, procedures, or workflows. The goal of working sessions are to move the community forward on particular topics of interest to the EarthCube community.

To propose a working session please indicate:

  • Session Title

  • Session Leaders

  • Related EarthCube Projects (or EC Committees)

  • Session Overview

  • Key Session Activities

  • Key Session Outcome/Product

  • How will the outcomes be shared?

  • Required materials or technology

Organizers

Get Social with #EarthCube2022

 

We welcome and encourage live-tweeting and sharing through social media during the meeting, using the hashtag #EarthCube2022.  A speaker or poster presenter who does not wish for content to be shared must explicitly state so at the beginning of their presentation.

Contact Lynne Schreiber with any questions or suggestions.
