We are looking forward to seeing you in Alexandria Virginia for the fifth annual All Hands Meeting! This year’s theme is "Platform for Integration" and focuses on the many successes achieved so far by the EarthCube Community.

Highlights will feature a demonstration of the pilot registry work (Project 418), technology integration, how EarthCube defines its own success, and ways to enhance engagement in the scientific community and with external partners. Check out some session previews on the EarthCube Blog.

Here are a few logistics as you prepare for the meeting:
  • Check-in opens Wednesday, June 6 at 7:00 AM in the Foyer. (Please note there will be NO EARLY CHECK-IN this year due to another event taking place just prior to the Meeting.)
  • If you’ve already registered (and paid), all you will need to do is pick up your badge and head to breakfast!
  • If you’ve not yet paid, please try to do so before you arrive for the meeting. This will reduce the amount of time you need to spend at the check-in desk and will make your experience much smoother on Wednesday morning.
  • If you’re not sure if you’ve paid, log into your RegOnline account here and check the status of your registration.
If you have any questions, please contact the ESSO. See you soon!

Communicating Your Project through Napkin Drawing

“Napkin drawings” are a simple way to effectively communicate your project’s technologies and outcomes through verbal and visual communication. They help to ensure a clear and concise message when talking about your project. This session, led by instructors from the NSF-funded Science Gateways Community Institute, will provide an overview of how to create a useful napkin drawing.
  1. Effectively communicate your science gateway through verbal and visual communication.
  2. Value the importance of a clear and concise message when talking about your gateway.
  3. Articulate the components of your gateway that makes it distinctively different than what already exists.
About SGCI
The Science Gateways Community Institute (SGCI) was established to provide resources, services, experts, and ideas for creating and sustaining science gateways. Science gateways are online interfaces that give researchers, educators, and students easy access to specialized, shared resources that are specific to a science or engineering discipline. For example, they may connect to or between instruments (such as telescopes or sensors), data collections, specialized software, or high-performance computing.

While the use of gateways can improve the productivity of researchers significantly, the process of developing, operating, and sustaining a gateway can prove challenging and time consuming. SGCI services and resources aim to fill that gap.

The SGCI is organized into five service areas:
  1. Incubator: Learn best practices from our consultants or Bootcamp
  2. Extended Developer Support: Get direct, custom development help
  3. Scientific Software Collaborative: Find gateways or software components (or promote your own)
  4. Community Engagement and Exchange: Engage with and learn from the gateways community
  5. Workforce Development: Build your career as a student or young professional
