Data Sharing Seminar Series for Societies

The Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) is part of a collaborative effort to present a seminar series on Data Sharing. Led by AGU, this series has been created with a goal of developing a better understanding of the evolving data (and software) sharing research culture. By connecting societies with invited speakers who are actively engaged with journals, funders, institutions, repositories, and other research communities on the practices available and challenges yet to be addressed, this series will emphasize the unique role societies have in bringing awareness of developing practices and supporting the necessary discussions within disciplines to bring their voice to the larger community.  

Scheduled for the first Friday or each month, from 10:00 - 11:00 am Eastern, the inaugural seminar on Data Sharing and Citation: How Societies can Make a Difference, will be presented on Friday, February 5th and will feature the following speakers:

  • Shelley Stall, American Geophysical Union (bio)
  • Juliane Baron, Federation of Associations Behavioral and Brain Sciences (bio)
  • Helena Cousijn, DataCite (bio)

Additional information, and a link for registration can be found here. We look forward to your participation in this inaugural session, as well as future sessions. 

Register now for CSSP's Virtual Leadership Workshop

Based on planning calls that have been taking place with our respected speakers we can say, with strong conviction, that you are going to want to make sure to register for the Council of Scientific Society Presidents (CSSP) Virtual Leadership Workshop on May 2 - 4, 2020

Monday's session on developing a strategic framework will include an opportunity to engage in a strategic planning exercise, focusing on outcome based planning for your organization to create a vision, direction, and plan for its future. MICHAEL MOLONEY, CEO of American Institute of Physics (AIP), will share how AIP answered some imperative questions around "why they are" and "how they fit into the physical sciences" as well as some do's and don't's they learned along the way. JOEL SACHS, a Principal with the The Sachs Groups, will lead those attending through an interactive exercise so everyone can leave with a first cut for growth for their specific society.  He will work with Michael and AIP as example for each step and give time for the attendees to complete the step. 

Following this session - and each session - small group breakout rooms will allow participants the chance to network with one another, as well as with our speakers.

If your society is also working on shifting your conference to a virtual format, the American Astronomical Society has compiled a very thorough list of resources and suggestions for how to make that happen. We are fortunate that they have offered to share this incredible resource with our societies.

CSSP Leadership Workshop Goes Virtual!

The dates have not changed (May 2-4, 2020), just the delivery method. We are working with our fantastic invited speakers to adjust their presentations to include content associated with the changes brought to both science and societies due to the current Covid-19 pandemic. During the past week, the Board of the Council of Scientific Society Presidents has been working diligently on determining the most effective way shift our Spring Leadership Workshop to its exciting virtual format.

With generous assistance by Know Innovation (KI), a group of trained facilitators with a passion for science, CSSP is anticipating delivering all the great science and leadership content and conversations that you are accustomed to experiencing. KI will be working closely with CSSP to ensure we have the skills and knowledge needed to make our virtual workshop a reality.

While we finish working out the details, we want to make sure you keep the CSSP Spring Leadership Workshop on your calendar on these dates.
