Planning is underway for the 2022 SAGE/GAGE Community Science Workshop which will be held June 14-16 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. As part of this workshop, we are seeking proposals for short courses and Special Interest Group sessions.
Short Courses: The day prior to the main meeting, Monday, June 13, will be open for short courses on topics of interest to the community. We are currently soliciting suggestions for ½- or 1-day short courses or workshops you would like to see offered and/or that you would be interested in helping to offer. Accepted short courses will be provided with a meeting room (capacities range from 20-100 people), free wifi, a projector, and a screen. Presenters are encouraged to bring their own laptops for any slides or other materials they wish to share. All other costs associated with hosting short courses will be the responsibility of the organizers. If your course aligns with a topic typically sponsored by UNAVCO or IRIS, please contact Donna Charlevoix for geodesy or John Taber for seismology to discuss additional funding support options.
Please submit your short course suggestions/requests by Tuesday, March 8, 2022.
Special Interest Groups (SIGs): SIGs (previously called Special Topic Sessions [STS] at UNAVCO workshops) are breakout groups, ~1.5 hr in length, held several times during the workshop itself. SIGs serve as an opportunity for discussions within the geophysics community and feedback to the facilities on a range of topics. SIGs have traditionally been forums for active discussions in small groups and have also served as a venue for short presentations followed by Q&A. We encourage all SIGs (including those submitted by facility staff) to include a community member as a co-convener to ensure community representation. Accepted SIGs will be provided with a meeting room (capacities range from 20-100 people), free wifi, a projector, and a screen. Presenters are encouraged to bring their own laptops for any slides or other materials they wish to share.
Please submit your SIG suggestions/requests by Tuesday, March 15, 2022.
If you have questions please contact Justin Sweet or Beth Pratt-Sitaula. We anticipate notifying short course proposers and SIG conveners of acceptances by late March.
Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh!
Justin Sweet & Beth Pratt-Sitaula
