SIGs/Breakouts - Requests due Tuesday, March 15th
=========================================
SIGs are breakout groups, ~1.5 hr in length, held several times during the workshop itself. SIGs serve as an opportunity for discussions within the geophysics community and feedback to the facilities on a range of topics. SIGs have traditionally been forums for active discussions in small groups, and have also served as a venue for short presentations followed by Q&A. We encourage all SIGs (including those submitted by facility staff) to include a community member as a co-convener to ensure community representation.

Accepted SIGs will be provided with a meeting room (capacities range from 20-100 people), free wifi, a projector, and a screen. Presenters are encouraged to bring their own laptops for any slides or other materials they wish to share.
