Dear Community Members,

Planning is underway for the 2022 SAGE/GAGE Community Science Workshop which will be held June 14-16 in Pittsburgh, PA.  We are currently soliciting suggestions for Special Interest Groups (SIG) (previously called Special Topic Sessions [STS] at UNAVCO workshops). 

SIGs are breakout groups, ~1.5 hr in length, held several times during the workshop itself. SIGs serve as an opportunity for discussions within the geophysics community and feedback to the facilities on a range of topics. SIGs have traditionally been forums for active discussions in small groups, and have also served as a venue for short presentations followed by Q&A.  We encourage all SIGs (including those submitted by facility staff) to include a community member as a co-convener to ensure community representation.

Accepted SIGs will be provided with a meeting room (capacities range from 20-100 people), free wifi, a projector, and a screen.  Presenters are encouraged to bring their own laptops for any slides or other materials they wish to share.


Please visit the link above to submit your SIG suggestions/requests by Tuesday, March 15, 2022. If you have questions please contact Justin Sweet (justin.sweet at iris.edu) or Beth Pratt-Sitaula (prattsitaula at unavco.org).  We anticipate notifying SIG conveners of acceptances by late March.

Additional information about the 2022 SAGE/GAGE workshop can be found on our website (www.iris.edu/workshop).

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you in Pittsburgh!
Justin Sweet & Beth Pratt-Sitaula

Special Interest Group (SIG) proposals due: March 15
Student travel support application period: March 1-22
Registration opens: Early April
Registration, abstract submission, and hotel deadline: May 18
