ESIP Federation: Connecting Communities for Advancing Data, Systems, Human & Organizational Interoperability November 22, 2013 Carol Meyer Executive Director Foundation for Earth Science email@example.com
ESIP Vision To be a leader in promoting the collection, stewardship and use of Earth science data, information and knowledge that is responsive to societal needs.
Moving into the Social Era “We need to use business models that will allow connected humans with shared interests and goals to work together and to produce returns” - Nilofer Merchant, 11 Rules for Creating Value in the Social Era
The ESIP Federation is A broad-based, distributed community of Earth science data and information technology practitioners.
Community Platform Platform: A powerful ecosystem that scales, morphs and incorporates new features “planks”, [community members]. - Phil Simon, The Age of the Platform
ESIP: Connecting Earth Science Data Agencies, Functions and Topics Data Scientists App Developers Data Centers Science Tool Dev Educators Science Networks Librarians ESIP Federation Technical Topics Domain Topics Education Topics
ESIP Platform for Earth Science Data & Technology Community Engagement Connecting Data, Systems, People and Organizations Virtual and In-Person Meetings Wiki, Commons, Website, Testbed Clusters, Working Groups & Committees ESIP Products Technical Conventions Best Practices Professional Development Expert Knowledge Transfer Technical Marketplace
ESIP Cares About Data Interoperability Innovation Reuse and Extensibility Making Stuff Work
Things ESIP Does Venue for Collaboration and Connections o Both virtual and in-person o Support with suite of collaboration tools Community Building o Mini-grants and other support for small projects (e.g. testbed) o Peer Recognition o Student Engagement Professional Development o Technical Workshops o Non-technical Workshops (e.g. Evaluation, Communication) o Data Management Course/Workshops
Things ESIP Does #2 Outreach o Education (e.g. annual teacher workshop on climate change) o Professional Societies (e.g. AGU, GSA) o International Efforts (e.g. GEO, ISRSE) Consensus Buidling on Emerging Topics o Data Citation http://dx.doi.org/10.7269/P3862DC8http://dx.doi.org/10.7269/P3862DC8 o Stewardship Principles http://dx.doi.org/10.7269/P34F1NNJhttp://dx.doi.org/10.7269/P34F1NNJ o Unique Identifiers http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12145-011- 0083-6;http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12145-011- 0083-6 o NRC Study
Of Interest to SILS ESIP Platform represents a knowledge exchange Experts give and take Inter-community (domain, function, science) Topical Synergies Data Preservation – documentation, metadata, identifiers, provenance Emerging Technologies – semantics, ontologies, cloud computing, software sustainability Discovery, Access and Use Implementation Partners IS professionals are partners in preservation IS schools are a key training ground IS personnel should be embedded with domain and computer scientists
Invitation to Engage ESIP is an open forum 2-way exchange Low barrier to entry Meta-community Community-driven activities = maximum relevance Make collaboration work for your day job!
