I-GUIDE Virtual Poster Competition

Data-Intensive Convergence Science: FAIR Geospatial Data for Sustainability Research

April 29-30, 2024 · Virtual · Organized by I-GUIDE Climbers

The goal of the Virtual Poster Competition will be to showcase the latest research and innovation in convergence science for sustainable development through geospatial artificial intelligence (AI) and data science approaches, with a particular focus on promoting FAIR (findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability) data principles.

This competition is sponsored by the Institute for Geospatial Understanding through an Integrative Discovery Environment (I-GUIDE), funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) as part of its Harnessing the Data Revolution Big Idea initiative.

Virtual Poster Format

  • Organized Zoom Meeting: The opening session will include introductions and overall announcements.
  • Breakout Sessions: For each topic area, smaller breakout rooms will be arranged to allow for more focused discussions and attendee interaction.
  • Interactive Poster Viewing: In addition to the breakout sessions, posters will be hosted on a dedicated LinkedIn page. Presenters are expected to be virtually available during the allocated timeframe to monitor the page and respond to any comments or questions left by viewers.
