ESIP Summer Meeting 2015

The Federation for Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) is having its 2015 Summer Meeting on 14–17 July 2015 at the Asilomar Conference Grounds in Pacific Grove, CA. The theme is 'Data-driven Community Resilience', and will include a variety of activities supporting this theme for all levels of technical expertise.


Early registration (through to 15 June 2015) is $400/member and $525/non-member. After 15 June, the registration fee rises to $500 (members) and $625 (non-members). Student registration is available for $150. A special one-day attendance is available for $200. A full refund will be given through to 15 June 2015.


The 2015 Summer ESIP Federation Meeting will be held at the Asilomar Conference Grounds. It's easy to get to Asilomar from area highways, as well as numerous airports. The Monterey Regional Airport (MRY) is just 8 miles from Asilomar, while Mineta San Jose International (SJC) is 80 miles to the North and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is 110 miles to the North. The airports in San Jose and San Francisco are also served by the Monterey Airbus, an airport shuttle service that can bring travellers right to the door.


A limited block of rooms is available at Asilomar, an all inclusive venue, for $247.07 (single) or $159.72 (double). The cut-off date for reservations is 15 June 2015 or when the block becomes full, whichever is first.

Reservations can be made starting 12 February 2015 here

Submit Breakout Sessions

We’re inviting proposals for sessions and presentations from technical practitioners, scientist, and educators for the Summer Meeting. We want to hear stories and innovation from around the Earth Science community that cross sectors and organizations. We’re interested in success stories and cautionary tales, best practices and abject failures, and lessons from the past and visions for the future. While the theme focusses on data-driven community resilience, sessions are welcome on all topics relevant to ESIP. Submit your ideas to the ESIP Commons (Instructions) by 27 April 2015.


The poster session will be held on 15 July, during the evening reception. Posters should be no larger than 3' x 4' (landscape), and posters and their abstracts should be submitted digitally to the ESIP Commons by creating an account (if you don't have one) and then creating a poster. Choose the Summer 2015 Meeting for the event. All poster abstracts must be added by 19 June 2015 for inclusion in the printed program. After creating your poster, please upload a digital image of it to your ESIP Commons poster page. These images will scroll at the registration desk throughout the duration of the meeting.
