Town Hall Presentations:

Call for Lightning TalksSign-up is now closed. The OOIFB Town Hall will include a series of lightning presentations where scientists are invited to present one slide in one minute explaining how s/he has used (or plans to use) freely available observatory data in their respective research. In this Town Hall we will expand beyond OOI, and encourage users of other observatories to also share their experiences in applying observatory data in their respective research. We hope you will consider presenting a slide in the lightning session. Sign-up now to present a lightning talk! If you are using observatory data (OOI, NCAR, NEON, etc.) and wish to present a lightning talk during the Town Hall, please sign up HERE by February 9th. Time during the Town Hall session is limited, but we hope to accommodate as many lightning slides as possible.
