Registration for the DUG meeting is now open. You can complete the registration form here. There is no cost to registration.
This year, we will be hosting a poster reception on the first day. All attendees are invited to present a poster on any activity at their home institution that relates to DataONE; use of education materials, implementation of the MN software stack, product from a working group activity etc. You may submit your poster title as part of the registration process and information on poster sizing and requirements will be posted here shortly. If you need to add a poster to your registration, or change your poster title, email firstname.lastname@example.org with "DUG Poster" as the subject line.
Please note, you are not required to attend the ESIP meeting if attending the DUG. However if you plan to attend both, you must register for the DUG and ESIP meetings separately.
A group rate is available at the Courtyard Marriott Chapel Hill, the meeting hotel. Reservations can be made by calling the hotel and mentioning the Foundation Earth Science block. If you are also attending ESIP, you do not need to make separate reservations as this rate is valid across the duration of both meetings. Reservations can also be made online:
About the DUG
The DataONE Users Group (DUG) is the worldwide community of Earth observation data authors, users, and diverse stakeholders that makeup the DataONE partnership communities. The primary function of the DUG is to represent the needs and interests of these communities in the activities of DataONE. In particular, the DUG provides guidance that facilitates DataONE in achieving its vision and mission.
Members of the DUG include representatives of the Member Nodes, Coordinating Nodes and other relevant groups (e.g. research networks, professional societies, libraries, academic institutions, data centers, data repositories, environmental observatory networks, educators, scientists, policy makers, administrators, citizen scientists, international organizations, NGOs, private companies, etc.).
The inaugural meeting of the DUG occurred December 9th-10th 2010 in Chicago, IL. At that time the interim Chair and Vice-Chair were elected and the founding DUG was established. A second meeting was held 11th-12th July 2011 in Santa Fe, NM.
The DUG will continue to meet annually to identify the evolving technical challenges and opportunities that can be applied to advance education, research, and policy through the use of DataONE data products, tools, and services.
