Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

The CDI holds monthly meetings and in-person workshops for the entire community. Individual collaboration areas set their own meeting schedule.

Together the monthly forums, collaboration area calls, and in-person workshops provide a key component in the networking and sharing among community members.

Monthly Forums

The Community for Data Integration (CDI) meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of each month from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern Time.

Browse the presentations and notes from each monthly forum categorized by fiscal year (FY) below.


Annual Workshops

CDI hosts an annual meeting that brings together scientists, managers, data managers, information technologists, and data users to leverage existing tools in support of mission-critical science and to stimulate future thinking for emerging “big data” and other pertinent questions. Participants share activities and accomplishments through presentations, workshops, papers, poster sessions, and informal gatherings. In recent years, the annual workshop alternates between an in-person workshop and a webinar series.
