Abstract Information

EarthCube welcomes project participants, new PIs, early career researchers and scientists, and all other interested parties to submit abstracts for oral presentations, breakout sessions and poster sessions.  The application window is now closed. 

Oral Presentations

The 2019 EarthCube Annual Meeting welcomes abstracts for oral presentations on the theme, Science in Action. Topics may include: Science Outcomes & Engagement, Technology Integration, and EarthCube Project Sustainability.

Poster Sessions 

As with many scientific meetings and conferences, the poster sessions will be the key communication platform. We listened to community feedback we received from the 2018 meeting and have scheduled even more time for the poster sessions to allow for unstructured discussion, and for meeting with potential collaborators.

Posters will be grouped thematically, and will be presented on either Wednesday or Thursday afternoon.  The date/time of your presentation and the size of the poster display will be communicated to presenters upon acceptance. Poster presenters will have an opportunity to give a lightning talk during the Annual Meeting. The Organizing Committee members will accept only a single poster per presenter. Individuals may be a co-author on multiple posters.

In particular, we are interested in posters that:

Discuss science that uses or has been enabled by EarthCube;
Introduce science questions or projects looking to integrate EarthCube infrastructure;
Pair EarthCube Infrastructure with projects that use the tools;
Showcase educational outcomes using EarthCube Tools (notebooks, workshops, courses);
Are EarthCube Tools;
Are of Integration activities that link EarthCube Building Blocks;
Show results from Research Coordination Networks; or
Other posters dealing with social components of EarthCube Research or topics not covered here.

Demo Section

This year, during the traditional poster session, we will be offering a Demo Section - where projects better suited to demonstrations than posters can engage the attendees. This will be held at the same time as the poster session, in an adjacent space.  Tables, Wifi,  and electrical power will be provided. You will need to bring your own laptop.

Submission Process

All abstract submissions were due on April19, 2019 and will be limited to 300 words in length. All abstracts were subject to review by the 2019 EarthCube Annual Meeting Organizing Committee. Notification of acceptance was given by April 24, 2019. Abstracts not selected for oral presentation will be invited to present as a poster.
