2020 OOIFB Town Hall - Lightning Talk Application
The Ocean Observatories Initiative Facilities Board (OOIFB) will host a Town Hall during the 2020 Fall AGU Meeting. The Town Hall will be virtual and is scheduled for December 8th from 10:00 am to 11:00 am EST. 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. The new OOI Data Explorer tool will be demonstrated, the exciting activities of the OOI Data Labs education program will be featured, and early career scientist activities will be highlighted.
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.
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 exhibitors to offer a time slot during the meeting to highlight the lightning talks.
