Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) wants data to be more easily accessible for all people. During the July meeting, the theme “Data for All People: From Generation to Use & Understanding” will drive the ongoing dialogue about broader accessibility issues and uses of Earth science data. Several of our staff and affiliate organizations are participating July 19–22, 2022, in Pittsburgh to advance ideas to make data more useful by researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and the public. It’s the first in-person meeting of ESIP since January 2020. 

NCEI staff and affiliates from the Cooperative Institute for Satellite Earth System Studies (CISESS) will give talks and lead sessions about a variety of topics, including data education at the secondary level, using artificial intelligence across applications, and building skills around cloud-native and cloud-optimized systems. Our people are slated to give talks about digital twin Earth—a planetary simulation for understanding complex problems—and hold sessions about the speed of innovation and its repercussions on decision-making.

ESIP July and January conferences reinforce the organization’s overarching goal of providing knowledge that is responsive to societal needs. For over 20 years, ESIP meetings have brought together the most innovative thinkers and leaders around Earth science data, forming a community of practitioners that has been useful for research and policymaking.
