The IRIS Early Career Investigators (ECI) Working Group and the UNAVCO Education and Community Engagement (ECE) Program invite late-stage graduate students through pre-tenure faculty to attend a networking luncheon at the AGU Fall Meeting. ECIs will be asked to deliver a short (<2 minute) ‘pop-up’ talk about themselves and their research to stimulate discussion and practice their ‘elevator’ speeches.  We hope that this provides ECIs an opportunity to practice public speaking in a way that is understandable to a wide audience, and create a unique forum to disseminate ECI science in a cross-disciplinary way.  

The luncheon will take place on Wednesday, December 17th between 12:15-1:45 pm at the Hotel Palomar, which is two blocks away from Moscone West.  Doors will open for lunch at 11:45 am, and the program will begin promptly at 12:15.  Attendance is limited to 30 people on a first-come, first-serve basis.  A pre-luncheon webinar will also take place in early December to emphasize best practices for oral presentations and the importance of distilling one’s research to a broad community.  Slides will be due on Friday, December 12th to allow for organization before the luncheon.

Please reply to Danielle Sumy (danielle.sumy at iris.edu) if you’d like to take part.  We look forward to your participation!

Danielle Sumy, on behalf of the ECI Working Group, and Aisha Morris, on behalf of UNAVCO ECE
