From Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)

1. Contact potential evaluators regarding Summer meeting workshop (wait to get confirmation from Carol on dates and location)

2. In a couple weeks, begin drafting our vision for the winter/and or summer Evaluation workshop

a) What is the overall goal of the workshop b) What audience are we trying to reach ? c) What is an appropriate format for the workshop and how many Case Studies can we fit in 1- 1.5 days ? What should those case studies be, one for data managers/providers, another for applied scientists and decision makers ?

3. Explore venues for ESIP outreach to applied science community such as tagging up with future Applied Sciences training events.

other discussion items: Improving our outreach to the applied science community (scientists working on applied science project). We need to think of how to engage them in ESIP and how they may benefit and contribute to ESIP.
