Early Career Travel Grant Applications - due April 25

This application is for a travel grant of up to $1500 for early career researchers in the geosciences to attend the EarthCube Annual Meeting June 14th-16th in San Diego. The due date for your application is April 25th. Early career is defined here as ten years out from completion of the highest degree earned or currently in school earning a degree.  Applicants should have submitted an abstract to give a presentation at the meeting. If an applicant has not submitted an abstract already, they will be given the opportunity to submit an abstract for a POSTER presentation and should submit the abstract with this form.  In addition, this award recognizes that underrepresented and minoritized groups within the geosciences may face more significant barriers to retention and advancement within the field, and these groups will be given priority for funding. 

Call for Abstracts

​We welcome abstracts for

  • Notebooks

  • Posters, Oral Presentations and Demonstrations

  • Working sessions

COVID Precautions - updated 5/16/2022

At the heart of EarthCube is people - the collaborative spirit, the connections, the fabric that has made this a community we are glad to be associated with. We want you to be up-to-date on the latest plans to keep everyone safe so that we can enjoy our time together after such a long hiatus. Proof of full vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test IS NOT REQUIRED for our event, although we ARE REQUIRING MASKS INDOORS.

 

As of May 2022, COVID-19 remains an ongoing risk. Some members of our community are more vulnerable than others, and many of us have loved ones who are vulnerable as well. As researchers, we must apply the best scientific knowledge and practices available. Many restrictions have been lifted or have changed, and we thank you for your flexibility as we navigate this climate together. In consideration of our current COVID context, and anticipating where it may be by our meeting, we plan to implement the following procedures for our in-person annual meeting:

  • Wear a mask indoors, except when presenting.  (Masks are still required for the poster presentations).

  • Eat and drink outdoors.

  • If you are symptomatic, you cannot attend unless those symptoms are related to a known chronic condition. Stay at home, or at the hotel, if you have any COVID-like symptoms. Many have gotten COVID-19 from someone who simply assumed “they were just fighting a cold.”

  • Test, if you have concerns. Optional testing will be available at the registration desk.

  • If you are concerned that someone is symptomatic, please contact a meeting organizer with your concerns.

  • Be respectful of others at all times, even if their decisions are different from yours.

  • If you test positive, please follow UC San Diego’s isolation protocol.

We look forward to meaningful conversations, forming new collaborations, and making memories amidst the backdrop of the La Jolla coastline. With your help we can ensure all of the fun is not upstaged by COVID.

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.

Posters should be no larger than 45 inches x 45 inches (114 cm x 114 cm) and can be put on display in the morning of your presentation.

Figshare instructions

  1. Log into https://figshare.com, creating an account if needed.

  2. Click “My data” and “Create new item”

  3. Upload your poster and enter title (“Sentence case” preferred), authors, and metadata.

  4. Publish and submit your DOI to [Link]

  5. You’re done; consider linking your ORCID with Figshare.

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, MATLAB live scripts, 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 25, 2022. Final notebooks are due on April 15, 2022.

 

Guidelines:

1) Submissions should provide a Jupyter notebook, R notebook, or Matlab Live Script and use the respective EarthCube provided template (Python; Matlab Live script  R ).

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 25) and URL (due April 15) to a repository containing the notebook.

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
