[AGU] Call for abstracts: Voices from the Global Open Science Community: Showcasing Progress, Challenges, and Lessons Learned

Hi all,

Myself, @paigem, Bri Lind, and Daniel Quaye are hosting an all-day innovations session at AGU’s fall meeting in San Francisco this December focused around open science progress, challenges, and lessons learned. While any abstracts in this theme are welcome, we are specifically looking to center voices underrepresented in events like this (such as early career/students and open science practitioners from the Global South).

Abstracts can be submitted here: AGU23

Open science can enable truly inclusive, accessible, and reproducible science. As open science becomes widely adopted, it’s important to take the time to meet as a community and share our knowledge, tools, best practices, and challenges so that we can best learn from and support one another.

This session will bring together diverse practitioners from the open science community in an inclusive and welcoming space. This session will have subsessions including: showcasing open science success stories and challenges, a panel discussion of globally underrepresented voices, hands-on technical workshops, and small group discussions on various open science topics.

We especially encourage individuals who are early-career, from the Global South, and from other underrepresented groups to submit to this session. In the spirit of open science, we encourage all presenters to contribute materials (e.g. slides, workshop materials) to a common JupyterBook, to create a lasting community resource.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions/comments

Looking forward to receiving your submissions!

[edit] forgot an important detail: abstracts are due Wednesday, August 2nd (yes, that’s next week!) at 11:59pm Eastern Time.


Forgot to mention: to create as inclusive a session as possible we welcome speakers presenting remotely, so travel to San Francisco is not needed to present :slight_smile:
