AGU - Gatherings, Presentations, Sessions

AGU 2019 is Dec 9-13. Great opportunities to listen, learn, share, and do more!

We hope to see everyone together at these two events:

We've pulled together a schedule of 53 EarthCube presentations and sessions
throughout the meeting. To add yours, or to recommend other AGU presentations or events you think would be of interest to other EC people, alert us or add info here (pg.1 - EC, pg.2 - other recommendations).

People from several EC projects will demo tools at the EarthCube Booth #510 during the week: DRILSDOWN, Net CDF-CF, Resource Registry, Planet Microbe, InGeO, Data Discovery Studio, Power of Many, Heliophysics projects, ArcCI, BALTO, CyberConnector, Geochron/Sparrow, and NEREID will be available at listed times. See also Pangeo's tutorials & info.

EarthCube is a partner in the 2019 AGU Data FAIR, booth #1329. Data Help Desk topics and tool demos at his booth include several EC projects and CDF repository members; our partner ESIP is coordinating much of this work. Check out the highly relevant Data FAIR Town Hall issues.


If you won't be at AGU in person this year, you can still join in:

Huge opportunity: AGU is offering FREE live-streaming of 15 sessions focused on climate over 3 days starting Wed., Dec. 11, plus access to additional sessions that will be recorded. Recordings - over 30 in all - will remain accessible for 3 months after the conference.  To participate, register at AGU-GO. 

Plus - why not follow along on Twitter to enjoy some events vicariously? No account is needed to search #AGU19 or to look us up @EarthCube.
