FedGeoDay 2021


FedGeoDay is THE event devoted to "open geospatial ecosystems" (open source software, open/collaborative mapping, open science challenges and open engagements) that are used to initiate and grow capabilities across the U.S. federal government. This live, online conference brings together federal program managers, technology leaders, industry partners, NGOs, and many others to gather and share ideas, learn, and network.

Keynote



Dr. Chelle L. Gentemann (she/her)

Senior Scientist, Farallon Institute


Open Ecosystems Help Science Storm the Cloud


Open source cloud-based data science platforms, accessed through a web-browser window, are revolutionizing what federal programs can accomplish. These new platforms enable advanced, collaborative, interdisciplinary science to be performed wherever scientists and citizens can connect to the internet. Yet, we have all witnessed promising new tools which seem harmless and beneficial at the outset become damaging or limiting. What do federal programs and scientists need to consider as these new ways of conducting our work are evolving?

Chelle is a passionate advocate for open science, open source software, and inclusivity. She co-chaired the National Academies’ Report on Open Source Software Policy Options for NASA Earth and Space Sciences, and in addition to being a full time oceanographer, also leads the development of open source and open science best practices for NASA researchers. As a physical oceanographer focused on remote sensing, she has worked for over 25 years on retrievals of ocean temperature from space and using that data to understand how the ocean impacts our lives. She is the lead scientist on a proposed new NASA satellite, Butterfly. Her more recent research focuses on using cloud computing for interdisciplinary science, air-sea interaction research, and geophysical algorithm development. She has served on scientific committees, notably as co-chair of a standing committee for the National Academy of Sciences, and has presented to a federal house committee on NASA's implementation of scientific community priorities.

Code of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We expect cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

THE QUICK VERSION

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

THE LESS QUICK VERSION

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion, technology choices, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Sponsors are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, sponsors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified as they'll be wearing branded clothing and/or badges.

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events.
