EC2020 - EarthCube Annual Meeting to Go Virtual

Abstracts Due April 15, 2020

A message from Christine Kirkpatrick, EarthCube Office PI

Dear EarthCube Community,

With your health and safety top of mind, we are canceling the in-person EarthCube Annual Meeting, planned for June 2-4 in San Diego. Instead, we will offer a series of virtual events during the week of 15 June 2020.

It is important to reflect on the accomplishments and advances made by the EarthCube community this past year. It is crucial to provide ways for our community to connect as well as to share novel approaches used in geoscience research and the new tools, techniques, and data available to others as a result.

To allow for additional posters, notebooks, and presentations, the new deadline for abstracts is April 15th. The Program Committee is re-envisioning this virtual event, tuned to remote delivery, such as a virtual poster session, online demos, and distributed interaction friendly to Eastern - Hawaii time zones and for those balancing work and caregiving.

Watch for updates on the Annual Meeting webpage and in the monthly EarthCube Newsletter.


Please Share Online Opportunities!

With the necessary acceleration in working from home during these times, the next newsletter (out April 6) will feature new remote opportunities for growth, learning, skill building, and collaboration in cyberinfrastructure and geosciences. If you know of upcoming opportunities with remote participation, please send those to Ouida Meier ( to share.

Example: The EarthCube tech team highly recommends this Stanford University online course on Knowledge Graphs to the EarthCube community. It's free and open to the public, has an amazing list of guest lecturers, and will run on Tuesdays 4:30-6:20 pm PDT, Mar 31 - Jun 2, 2020. Details:
