Unidata Users Committee

Unidata Users Committee

About the Committee

The Unidata Users Committee, composed of university representatives appointed by the Strategic Advisory Committee chair, is the primary mechanism for gaining scientific feedback on the effectiveness of the Unidata Program. Appointments reflect the range of large and small colleges and universities with undergraduate and graduate emphases where Unidata systems are in use.

The Users Committee meets a minimum of twice yearly and reports to the Strategic Advisory Committee; its members are appointed for three years. In additiona, a Graduate Student representative to the Users Committee is appointed to a two year term.

The committee is charged with three tasks:

  1. Determining the attitudes of the user community toward the Unidata program;
  2. Soliciting suggestions for additions to the data streams and software products; and
  3. Facilitating the exchange of ideas among users on the Unidata Program and its systems.

To nominate yourself or a colleague for membership on the Unidata Users Committee, use our nomination form.

Unidata Users Workshops are five-day events, every three years, to introduce new topics, such as operational and experimental observations in geoscience education. Workshop themes originate in Unidata's Users Committee and focus on new concepts or tools for education or research or both. Lectures by experts and hands-on lab instruction create a relaxed, active learning atmosphere among peers.

Next Users Committee Meeting

The next meeting will be a joint meeting with the Strategic Advisory Committee, held 16-17 October, 2017 in Boulder, Colorado.
