Call for Lightning Talks at OOIFB Town Hall

The Ocean Observatories Initiative Facilities Board (OOIFB) will host a Town Hall at the 2021 AGU Fall Meeting in New Orleans, LA.  The Town Hall will be offered in person, as well as virtually, and is scheduled for Tuesday, December 14th from 11:15 am to 12:15 pm Central Time. For those attending in-person, the location is the Convention Center, Room 395-396.  The community will have the opportunity to hear the latest information about the OOI facility, the Data Explorer tool, Pioneer Array relocation plans, and early career scientists’ activities.

The Town Hall will include a series of lightning presentations where scientists are invited to present one slide in one minute explaining how they have used (or plan 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.

Time during the Town Hall is limited and we expect to be able to schedule about ten lightning talks during the Town Hall.  However, we are excited to announce that all submitted lightning talks will have the opportunity to be presented during the Fall AGU meeting!  The OOIFB has teamed with the OOI booth exhibitor to offer a time slot during the meeting to highlight the lightning talks.  The session at the OOI booth will be a virtual event.

Sign-up now to present a lightning talk – If you are using observatory data and wish to present a lightning talk during the Town Hall, please sign up HERE by December 1st.

Funding Available for AGU Registration Fee – Please note, all participants and presenters of the OOIFB Town Hall must be registered for the 2021 Fall AGU Meeting.  Funding is available to offset the registration fees for students and early career scientists (ECS) who are presenting a lightning talk.  Funding is limited and the first 20 student/ECS applications will be considered for reimbursement.  The Lightning Talk application form includes space for requesting AGU registration reimbursement.

The Town Hall is aimed at researchers who are now 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.  We hope to see you at the OOIFB Town Hall!

Event: OOI Facility Board Town Hall

When:   Tuesday, December 14th from 11:15 am to 12:15 pm Central Time

Where:   Convention Center, Room 395-396 – New Orleans, LA

Virtual participation will also be available to individuals registered for the AGU Fall Meeting.
