Summer 2015 Meeting
July 14-17, 2015
The 2015 Summer ESIP Federation Meeting will be held at Asilomar, CA
The Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) & Community Resilience: Coming together
ESIP comes together around changing technology, data, information & knowledge in support of society. Activities at this meeting are encouraged to address the data-driven technical, social and scientific aspects of community resilience as it relates to:
- Open Source Software Projects
- Data Archives' Long-Term Planning
- Organizational Change & Collective Impact
- Local communities use of Earth science data/technology for climate resilience?
- Add yours here
- "Data-Driven Community Resilience: Subtitle TBD" (winner, WORKING THEME)
- from information to knowledge to wisdom
- Data Analytics - information to knowledge to wisdom
- Producer to consumer
- Big Data and Open Science bruce c (talk)
Background - ESIP Strategic Plan
- Goal 1: Increase the use and value of Earth science data and information
- Goal 2: Strengthen the ties between observations and user communities (e.g. technologies, research, education and applications)
- Goal 3: Promote techniques to articulate and measure the socioeconomic value and benefit of Earth science data, information and applications
- Goal 4: Position ESIP to play a major role in addressing effects of climate change (mitigation, adaptation).
Meeting Enhancement Issues and Thoughts
- ESIP Summer Film Festival
- 10 minute films running/looping in individual rooms
- Plenary with dynamic/compelling speaker recaps the outcomes
- Swag thoughts: ESIP kerchiefs? ESIP PJ bottoms (Drupal did this in Denver it was a big hit)? ESIP shot glasses (we've already done beer glasses, and these are easier to pack)?
- Other? - beanies (goes with the cool weather theme, perfect for campfires and buttons/badges (see next)) - sashes and buttons for badge contest
- Wrap-up at end of the meeting
- Campfire report outs
- Need someone very engaging (e.g., Peter Fox)
- Visioneers would act as "camp counselors" (if not, many of the following ideas will not work)
- Can start as a "plenary" campout, and then break out into "campsites"
- walking breakout sessions
- evening event at Monterey Bay Aquarium (?)
- MBARI open house on Saturday
- Leverage "local" folks - NOAA, USGS, etc - who may not yet be engaged with ESIP
- GOOD COFFEE
- Inviting local Uni students as observers to make a "daily paper" - maybe link it to the app?
- Could we look beyond the student fellows (maybe fund a couple?), beyond the local Unis
- Beyond the social media that we're already using - a more consolidated experience
- Hearing the views/observations from outside, non-ESIP-indoctrinated people can be hugely informative
- Requests on a one-on-one basis are much more productive that broad emails to esip-all, when we're looking for folks to volunteer
- Will require outside transportation services scheduled if we're serious about field trips; or possible set up rental car car pooling
- Thursday PM Funding Friday beer fest
- (not discussed in call, suggested by Steve D) Scavenger Hunt
Movie night & discussion
- Cannery Row
- Brewster Kahle (Internet Archive)
- john Wilson USC?
- Kerry Emanuel, MIT (he's giving a talk at GSFC March 23, 2015 on "Storm and Surge Risk to Major Coastal Cities in a Changing Climate")
