Opportunity: Be an OSGeo expert in the Data Help Desk of the virtual European Geoscience Union General Assembly 2021 and share your knowledge !

Dear OSGeo communities, (apologies fro crossposting)

as of today, the annual European Geoscience General Assembly (EGU) has started, including the second annual Data Help Desk (DHD). The DHD welcomes also questions concerning Free and Open Source Geospatial tools. Over 50% of the attendees of the virtual EGU GA are early career scientists. So this is a great opportunity for all OSGeo communities to help to answer questions from the next generations of scientists and to get them involved in OSGeo-related work:

No mandatory time commitment – answer data or software questions and/or share a recorded demo or one-pager related to making data or software more open and FAIR and we will promote it during the event.

Volunteer to be a data or software expert for the upcoming Virtual Data Help Desk to be hosted during the first week of the 2021 European Geosciences Union General Assembly (#vEGU21: Gather Online; 19-23 April 2021). The Data Help Desk, which is a program of ESIP, the European Geosciences Union (EGU), the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and their partners, connects researchers with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain to learn about skills and techniques that will help further their research and make their data and software more open and FAIR. You can volunteer to take part in the following ways:

Answer earth science data (and software) questions (monitor platform and answer where you can);

Share a recorded demo (share a brief recorded demo of a tool or resource, ideally <5 min);

Share a one-pager about your tool or resource.

To volunteer, please complete this brief form as soon as possible by 5 April 2021. More details on how you can contribute are provided in the Volunteer Guidelines. NOTE: You do not have to be attending vEGU21 to take part in this event.

The Data Help Desk is happening virtually again after several successful virtual and in-person events at society meetings over the last few years at the AGU Fall Meeting, EGU General Assembly, ESA Annual Meeting, Ocean Sciences Meeting, and more. Don’t miss this chance to help others with data-related questions and to demo your tool or platform!
