Raskin Scholar
In March 2012, ESIP lost long-time member, Rob Raskin. Rob was soft-spoken, easy-going, wise and an Earth science information partner extraordinaire. Rob was a mentor to many aspiring Earth science data professionals. In collaboration with Rob’s family, ESIP remembers Rob and his dedication to support the next generation of Earth science data and technology leaders through the Robert G. Raskin Scholarship. The scholarship is awarded annually to an individual in the Earth or computer sciences who has an interest in community evolution of Earth science data systems. The Raskin Scholarship seeks to promote collaboration, research support, and exposure for talented students in the Earth or computer sciences. Special attention will be given to applicants demonstrating an interest in semantics, GIS, cyberinfrastructure and computing in the geosciences.

ESIP awarded the 2018 Robert G. Raskin scholarship to Sara Lafia, a graduate student in the Geography Department at the University of California Santa Barbara.

Lafia’s research focuses on enabling the spatial discovery of researcher datasets and publications. In support of this goal, she has develop linked data models and spatializations. During her time at UCSB, she has collaborated with the UCSB Library and the Center for Spatial Studies to advance the use of geospatial platforms, like Esri Open Data, to support spatial data curation and discovery. Sara’s expertise is in GIScience and increasingly in geo­semantics; she is gaining complementary domain understanding of advances in Earth science computing through the ESIP community.

Falkenberg Awardee
Hook Hua was awarded the 2017 Charles S. Falkenberg Award at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting Honors Ceremony, held on 13 December 2017 in New Orleans, La. The award is for “an early- to middle-career scientist who has contributed to the quality of life, economic opportunities and stewardship of the planet through the use of Earth science information and to the public awareness of the importance of understanding our planet.”

The Falkenberg is a joint AGU-ESIP award given in honor of Charles Falkenberg. As part of this joint award we are providing a plenary presentation opportunity to showcase the awardee's work.

ESIP Lab: Incubator Outcomes, Google Summer of Code Update, Advances in Provenance, USGS + ESIP Lab Partnership
A little more than a year ago, we created the ESIP Lab, run by Annie Burgess, the ESIP Lab Director. The ESIP Lab empowers the scientific community by supporting ideation, incubation and evaluation of Earth sciences cyberinfrastructure and encompasses most of the ESIP's funded projects - incubator, FUNding Friday and tech evaluation. In this session, we will give a short primer on the lab and focus on recent outcomes of 2017 funded projects.
