Astrid Emde (OSGeo)
Hello Peter,

thanks you for the update about EGU.

Great to hear that a virtual event is planned. Please keep us informed
about it.

All the best and stay healthy

Astrid

Re: EGU has cancelled the physical General Assembly 2020 in Vienna

Peter Löwe
Hi Astrid, hi Board,

apologies but due to extra work due to the Corvid-19 issue I can just now give an update about EGU 2020 and the Data Help Desk format.

Since physical attendance in Vienna for EGU 2020 won't be possible, this year there will be a massive virtual event for attendees all around the globe. Details here:
https://www.egu2020.eu/ 
https://egu2020.eu/sharing_geoscience_online/sharing_geoscience_online.html   

The Data Help Desk will take place in parallel to EGU 2020. It will also be a virtual event, running for five days in a row. The current idea is that each day will have a particular topic. So there should be a open source software day for which volunteers are needed.

In my opinion, it would be awesome if Board members could participate by giving a presentation about OSGeo and answering questions. As time zones will be an issue, it this could be done in multiple time slots mirroring the global distribution of the Board.

Details about the call for volunteers:

--- snip ---

Volunteer by 4/15 to be a Data Expert for the next Virtual Data Help Desk, to be hosted during the week of EGU2020: Sharing Geoscience Online (May 4th-May 8th, 2020). Just like the in-person events, this Virtual Data Help Desk, which is a program of EGU, the American Geophysical Union (AGU), and the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), will connect researchers with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain to share skills and techniques that will help further research and make data and software open and FAIR.

YOU can volunteer to be a Data Expert who contributes in one or both of the following ways:
1. Answer Data Questions Virtually (monitor question forums, likely Twitter and Slack, and answer where you can for the week of May 4th)
2. Share a short recorded demo of a tool or resource
To volunteer, please complete this brief form, as soon as possible by April 15th.

The Data Help Desk is happening virtually for the first time after several successful in-person events at professional meetings over the last few years at the AGU Fall Meeting, the Ecological Society of America Annual Meeting, the Ocean Sciences Meeting, and more. Don't miss this chance to help others with data-related questions and to demo your tool or platform!

Questions? Please contact [hidden email].

--- snap ---

I suggest that we try to coordinate all OSGeo related Data Help Desk efforts via a wiki page.

Best regards & stay healthy,
Peter

adams@osgeo.org
Dear Peter, @board,

in case nobody else wants, I can offer to prepare a presentation about
OSGeo activities and also answer questions, maybe also we can share it
with one other board member to cover at least two time slots?

Regards, Till

Peter Löwe
Till, Board,

thanks for the quick response.
We can use the already existing wiki page to coordinate the OSGeo efforts:
https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/EGU_DataHelpDesk_2020

Best,
Peter

my bad: I just realized I managed to remove all links when forwarding the call for volunteers. This should work (html-mail):
