The Data FAIR at AGU Fall Meeting, which is a program of the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP), EarthCube, and AGU, as well as their partners, provides researchers with opportunities to engage with informatics experts familiar with their scientific domain and learn about skills and techniques that will help further their research and make their data and software open and FAIR. *NEW This Year*, the Data FAIR will also connect journal editors and authors with resources for complying with FAIR requirements of publishers. The Data FAIR activities will include Town Halls, Workshops, Demos, and a Data Help Desk staffed with experts from the Earth and space science informatics community. Unless otherwise noted, all events will take place at Exhibit Hall Booth #1329. Attend these sessions and events to improve your data skills and practices!
