Tue, 22 Jun - Fri, 25 Jun 2021

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.

Target Audience:

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
