Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to join us at the first community meeting of the Island Systems Integration Consortium (ISIC)!  ISIC is a new NSF-sponsored Research Coordination Network (RCN) focusing on interdisciplinary science in the Galapagos. With this meeting, we will bring together geologists, biologists, and climate scientists to identify and pursue innovative, interdisciplinary questions for the next chapter of Galapagos research.

We have planned our first "All-Hands" meeting to take place October 24-28 in Cincinatti, Ohio. ISIC aims to bring together a community of scientists working in the Galápagos from across the natural sciences to imagine and investigate research questions at the intersection of geology, biology, and climate science that transcend single disciplines. We seek to create a network that is self-sustaining and constantly improving our ability to answer these questions into the future.

Our meeting page on the website<> has all the information you will need, including a tentative schedule for the event, a link to the meeting application, and (soon) a list of confirmed plenary speakers. Please note that our registration target date is August 28, 2022. Our grant budget can cover some costs of this event (travel, housing, breakfast and lunch, a conference dinner) for participants, and we will distribute these funds as equitably as possible. Please read more about conference travel support here<>.

Finally, we would welcome any feedback on our website<> (still a work in progress) so please don't hesitate to send your comments our way.

If you are interested in participating, please apply on the meeting website!

Best wishes,

ISIC RCN AH1 Meeting Planning Committee
