Upcoming Meetings


EarthCube Forms of Council of Funded Projects




All EarthCube Funded Projects are invited and encouraged to take part in the new advisory council. 

The Council of Funded Projects (CFP) will address and solidify the needs of the various EarthCube funded projects, advise the Leadership Council in that regard, and build relationships between the variety of interesting projects going on at EarthCube.  

Participation in the CFP is an opportunity to expand the reach of a project, become involved in others, and have an impact on EC operations and decisions. If you are interested in having someone from your team represent your project on the council, or if you want more information, please contact Basil Tikoff at

Last Call for Early Career & Underrepresented Scientists to Attend GSA 2019

The Geological Society of America will be holding its Annual Meeting and Exposition this year in Phoenix, Arizona. It will be a particularly great year to attend as it aligns with multiple celebration-worthy anniversaries. If you are an underrepresented minority or an early career scientist, let EarthCube help you get there! 

The EarthCube Early Career Travel Grant provides reimbursement funds to individuals ($500) or underrepresented minorities ($1000) to present or discuss their EarthCube-related work at professional meetings, workshops or conferences held in the United States. The Early Career Travel Grant program is intended to promote EarthCube activities and work products and to cultivate the next generation of EarthCube participants.

Applications for the Early Career Travel Grant to attend GSA 2019 are due THIS THURSDAY, AUGUST 15.

In addition to the regular program at GSA, check out the Short Courses. Of particular interest to EarthCube are: 1) Strabospot and 2) Your Thesis is Software: Tools for the Geoscientist to Help Write Better Code, from Version Control to Test-Driven Development
