Welcome to the 4th Annual Open Data Cube (ODC) Conference 2021
Information and Registration Page

 

Sponsored by Digital Earth Australia and Digital Earth Africa, and coordinated by FrontierSI, the Open Data Cube Conference will comprise a series of engaging presentations and panel discussions about upcoming possibilities for how we use EO, several coding opportunities, and even an Open Data Cube beginner’s session! With a range of activities for participation from expert coders to people interested in learning, you'll find inspiration from attending.

 

For the very first time, the Conference will be held as a virtual event,
taking place over four days, between Tuesday 22 – Friday  25 June 2021

 

This coordinated initiative is to undertake collaborative research and development to technically push the ODC family of applications forward, and to use the Open Data Cube to solve real world problems. We will have several experts from the space and spatial community who are all active users and contributors to the ODC, so you can be sure you will be exposed to some of the brightest developers in the spatial community.

 

The Conference has been structured to offer productive time for developers and scientists to work on code, systems, and/or data, with the aim of exploring new and innovative approaches. It will focus on three key participation themes:

  • Focused training on the Sandbox environment.

  • Using the ODC to undertake science in one of the Sandbox environments with already-available data.

  • Building infrastructure and/or code at the project core.

IS THIS RELEVANT TO ME?

If you are from the developer community, the scientific dev user community, a member of a university, STAC/COG users, or a member of the broader Earth observation user community, then this conference is a must.

You can get involved in:

  • Presentations: Watching keynote presentations and talks, followed by discussion with other participants about concepts and processes

  • Workshops: Joining workshops to learn new skills

  • Sprints: you'll have the opportunity to pick a topic of interest (or come with their own to pitch to others) and that they’ll work on it in their own timezone, with regular check-ins with others around the world

This will help you to:

  • Explore new applications of free and open Earth observation data

  • Experiment with tools and techniques to improve usability of the Open Data Cube

  • Develop and extend learning materials to help onboard others

  • Attend a training workshop on using the Open Data Cube

PROGRAM

The ODC Conference consists of presentation sessions and a multi-day sprint - registration for all of these sessions are free.

 

Please register for the sessions that best suit your timezone (you will be sent a Zoom link automatically upon registration). In order to be as globally inclusive as we can, the conference program featuring presentations and discussion will be run over two days - one Day 1, the session will be live in Australia and a playback of this live session (featuring local hosting and discussion) will happen 12 hours later for those in Africa, Europe and America. On Day 2, the session will be held live for Africa, Europe and America, and later played back (featuring local hosting and discussion) in Australia 10 hours later. You will need to click on the light blue 'Register for...' button

 

The sprint is entirely optional and will run over all three days. Sprint sessions will be largely self-organized, with opportunities to check in with others working on the same topic. You can work and contribute as much as you like depending on your availability and work schedule.

We are excited to be offering a Women's Sprint as part of this event - if you are interested in signing up for this, please complete this form!

SPEAKERS

ODC SPRINT TOPICS

During the ODC Sprints, you'll have the opportunity to pick a topic of interest (or come with your own to pitch to others) and be able to work on this in your own timezone, with regular check-ins with others around the world. Sprint Topics put forward so far are shown below, and you will be able to decide on which sprint you want to be part of on Day 1 of the conference.

Taking part in the Sprint is optional - you can spend 9am - 5pm on all three hack days, or as much time as you are able to around your other work and other commitments. It's up to you!

To play, press and hold the enter key. To stop, release the enter key.
