Overview

This year’s Science On a Sphere® (SOS) Users Collaborative Network Workshop will be hosted by NOAA in a virtual platform from December 1-3, 2020. The workshop will showcase presentations submitted from participants with a focus on the use of spherical display systems for providing science educational messages. Participation in this workshop is limited to members of the NOAA Science On a Sphere® Users Collaborative Network, as well as invited groups who work on related topics. Invitations to participate in the workshop are sent to all members via the Science On a Sphere® Users Collaborative Network listserv. If you are interested in participation and/or are concerned that your contact information may not be up-to-date, please check out the “More information” section, below.

There is no registration fee. However, all who attend the workshop must register in advance. It is not required that all participants submit presentation proposals; however, we do encourage submissions, as the philosophy of the workshop is that it is based on the needs of the attendees.
