Schedule

Below is a high-level session schedule (TBD) for the 2021 Virtual GEM Summer Workshop, provided by the Focus Group Leaders and Research Area Coordinators. For the most up to date workshop information, please refer to the GEM Workshop Website.

Please also refer to the GEM Focus Groups, Modeling Methods Methods and Validation Resource Group, and Machine Learning in Geospace pages for more information.

Sunday, July 25

Student Day

Student Day is on July 25th (Sunday), 2021 and aims to introduce the students to the GEM workshop. This year, the whole student day will be held via both gather.town and Zoom, and we are excited to have six student tutorial speakers covering the GEM space science topics and a special topic on the Decadal Survey. Other than the tutorial talks, we will have the ice breaker event virtually through gather.town and we also welcome the whole GEM community to participate. The students can access the Zoom call either by entering Meeting Room A, B and C on gather.town or through the Zoom link (similar to what we did last year), through V-GEM student day webpage. Please see the student day schedule in the GEM student forum. The Student Day schedule is here.
