December 8, 2019 | Grand Hyatt Union Square San Francisco, 36th Floor, Union Square Room

 icon-chevron-right 8 – 12pm | Data, Science, and Education & Outreach Legacy Products

Convened by B. Bendick, A. Férot, A. Goodwille, D. Saffer and J. Warren

This workshop will focus on ensuring the long-term legacy of the GeoPRISMS Program, through development of stable, robust Data Management strategies, Science and Education & Outreach Legacy Products.

12 – 1:15pm | Lunch to be provided

 icon-chevron-right 1:15 – 5:45pm | Strategies for Synthesis, Integration, and Future Opportunities

Convened by the GeoPRISMS Steering & Oversight Committee

This mini-workshop will focus on:

  1. Reviewing key advances on core topical questions identified at the recent Synthesis & Integration TEI;
  2. Defining needs, including data and knowledge gaps and opportunities for integration across disciplines; and
  3. Identifying paths forward, emerging opportunities, and activities to position the community in coming years.

6 – 9pm | Evening Celebration

As the Program comes to an end, we invite you to celebrate the achievements of the GeoPRISMS Program! Please join us for an evening reception that will take place after the pre-AGU Mini-Workshops at the Grand Hyatt Union Square. Light appetizers and a cash bar will be available.

All mini-workshops are free of charge and open to all. Registration and more information will be soon available on the GeoPRISMS website. Stay tuned!

Mini-Workshops offer inexpensive opportunities for small working group meetings to take place in conjunction with major meetings such as Fall AGU. Such workshops can focus on planning experiments, finalizing primary sites, defining research methodologies, developing proposals for data collection or synthesis, etc.

How to submit a Mini-Workshop proposal?

The GeoPRISMS Office and the GeoPRISMS Steering and Oversight Committee (GSOC) seek to support early planning activities relating to GeoPRISMS science objectives, both at the GeoPRISMS Primary Sites and for initiative thematic studies. Members of the GeoPRISMS community can apply for support to organize and fund mini-workshops to be held in conjunction with national meetings to bring together groups of interdisciplinary investigators for these purposes. Such mini-workshops can be associated with GSA, AGU or other national meetings at which the research area is well represented. Options for mini-workshops include 2-4 hour sessions in an evening, or half-day sessions before or after the meeting. Mini-workshops can bring together multiple investigators with interests in one of the Primary Sites, spanning multiple Primary Sites within one Initiative, or addressing a theme that transcends Initiatives, depending on the group’s objectives and assessment of the greatest needs.

Proposals should include the following and be no more than three pages long:

  • a scientific rationale for the workshop and the reason for its timeliness
  • sufficient evidence that a wide group of interdisciplinary researchers would be able to attend
  • the national meeting with which the mini-workshop would be associated
  • the possible meeting dates and desired meeting format (evening, half or full day, pre- or post-meeting)
  • a proposed number of attendees
  • the anticipated costs (meeting space, refreshments, A/V equipment, etc.) Note: A detailed budget is not required initially and participant travel and/or lodging costs cannot be provided.

Approved proposals will have reasonable costs associated with the meeting covered by the GeoPRISMS Office. The Office will assist with logistical arrangements. Workshop conveners are responsible for developing the science program and communicating with participants on scientific matters. Any GeoPRISMS supported mini-workshop will be open to all interested parties and will be advertised via the GeoPRISMS mailing list and website. Workshop conveners will provide a summary, including major results of the meeting for inclusion on the GeoPRISMS website and newsletter within 60 days of the meeting.

This is an excellent opportunity to jump-start science and implementation planning discussions for future GeoPRISMS studies, and we encourage you to consider such an undertaking.

If you would like to host a GeoPRISMS-related Mini-Workshop in association with a national meeting we invite you to submit your proposal to the GeoPRISMS Office at info@geoprisms.org. The proposals will be reviewed by the GeoPRISMS Steering and Oversight Committee (GSOC).

We encourage you to contact the GeoPRISMS Office with questions or advice prior to submitting.

We look forward to hearing your ideas.

-The GeoPRISMS Office and GSOC
