The Summer ESIP Federation meeting (July 9-12, 2013 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina) will feature topics related to the meeting theme of Building the Value Chain for Earth Science Data and Information in Disaster Planning, Response, Management and Awareness. We are inviting proposals for sessions that support the meeting’s theme and which further the on-going work of our community. Unique to this meeting, we have the opportunity to spend one afternoon at the new Nature Research Center at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (Raleigh). The Museum has opened its doors to us to allow us to share the exciting technology and other products you create with the public. Visualizations and animations will play very well in this environment, as will short talks (15-20 minutes) about how science data and technologies are informing Disaster Planning, Management, Response and Awareness. See the below for descriptions of the available platforms.
