ANNOUNCEMENT – OOI Facilities Board Town Hall at the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting – Call for Lightning Talks

The Ocean Observatories Initiative Facilities Board (OOIFB) will host a Town Hall at the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego, CA.  The Town Hall is scheduled for Thursday, February 20th from 12:45 pm to 1:45 pm at the San Diego Convention Center, 3, UL.  The community will have the opportunity to hear the latest information about the OOI facility, meet the OOIFB members, and learn about research using OOI data.

Sign-up now to present a lightning talk – The Town Hall will include a series of lightning presentations where scientists are invited to present one slide in one minute explaining how s/he has used (or plans to use) freely available observatory data in their respective research. In this Town Hall we will expand beyond OOI, and encourage users of other observatories to also share their experiences in applying observatory data in their respective research. We hope you will consider presenting a slide in the lightning session.  If you are using observatory data (OOI, NCAR, NEON, etc.) and wish to present a lightning talk during the Town Hall, please sign up at <https://forms.gle/iF7kwarAXiZT2Hga9> by February 9th (time during the Town Hall is limited and we will try to accommodate as many talks as possible).

The Town Hall is aimed at researchers who are using or are considering using OOI data, researchers interested in adding instrumentation to the OOI infrastructure, and educators at all levels interested in the OOI.
