Collaboration Forum

One of the ways to improve your CDI Statement of Interest and final proposal is to have cross-Mission Area and cross-Center collaboration. If you have an idea for a CDI proposal but are looking for collaborators in other disciplines or centers to join you, post your idea and contact information on the collaboration forum. By posting your idea there, CDI Coordinators can help facilitate connections.

Statement of Interest Lightning Presentation Session

Playback the recording | Slides | Order of Presenters (pdf) | Presenters (xls)

This year, the CDI will be holding an online session for 1-minute lightning talks to help the CDI community learn about the proposed ideas. 

Tuesday, February 6, 1:00-2:30pm Eastern Time, Add to Google Calendar 

Each submission will have one 16:9 slide (no animations - it will be converted to PDF) and 1 minute to share their idea with the community!

Download (optional) slide template (optional): Template (pptx)

Include somewhere on your slide:

  • Title of your submission
  • Your name
  • Your email address

Email your slide to cdi@usgs.gov by February 5, COB. Slides will be compiled, converted to PDF, and the presentation order will be sent out first thing on February 6. 

Tips

  • Don't over-clutter your slide. 
  • Practice the timing of your 1-minute pitch. You can say a lot in 1 minute if you know exactly what you are going to say.
  • Know your audience - the CDI is very diverse, so avoid specialized jargon.
  • Focus on the gap that your proposal will fill, and the benefit or lessons learned to be passed on to the CDI and the USGS.

More

  • The session will be recorded.
  • If no one on your project team can make the session, get in contact with cdi@usgs.gov.
