2021 OOIFB Town Hall - Lightning Talk Application
The Ocean Observatories Initiative Facilities Board (OOIFB) will host a Town Hall during the 2021 Fall AGU Meeting. The Town Hall will be offered in person as well as virtually and is scheduled for December 14th from 11:15 am to 12:15 am Central Time. The community will have the opportunity to hear the latest information about the OOI facility, Pioneer Array relocation plans, and early career scientists' activities; meet the OOIFB members; and learn about research using OOI data. Recent updates to the OOI Data Explorer tool will also be presented.

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.

If you are using observatory data (OOI, NCAR, NEON, etc.) and wish to present a lightning talk, please sign up using the form below. Please apply no later than December 1, 2021.
