ILTER 3rd OSM 2024

International Long Term Ecological Research Network 3rd Open Science Meeting

Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China | 14-19 October 2024

Call for OSM Registration & Abstracts Submission 

Please click the button to log in the website ( please register for the website first if you are a new user), then register for the OSM and submit your abstract.

The OSM registration deadline is July 31, and the abstract submission deadline is August 31.

Background

The International Long Term Ecological Research Network, ILTER, is a network of networks, encompassing hundreds of research sites located in a wide array of ecosystems that can help understand environmental change across the globe. ILTER's focus is on long-term, site-based research and monitoring. 
 

ILTER’s vision is a world in which science helps prevent and solve environmental and socio-ecological problems. ILTER contributes to solving international ecological and socio-economic problems through question and problem-driven research, with a unique ability to design collaborative, site-based projects, compare data from a global network of sites and detect global trends.


Specifically, the purpose of ILTER is to provide a globally distributed network and infrastructure of long-term research sites for use in the fields of ecosystem, biodiversity, critical zone and socio-ecological research, and to secure highest quality interoperable services in close interaction with related regional and global research infrastructures and networks.

ILTER organizes an Open Science Meeting (OSM) every three years to foster scientific exchange and community building within and beyond the ILTER networks around the globe. It is the gathering of the global Long-Term-Ecosystem-Research community and interested representatives of other fields. For latest information, please visit the events section on the ILTER website.

There will be five overarching themes, a range of special sessions, and well-known guest speakers. The meeting will encompass academic sessions and workshops, plenary lectures, social events and a field trip. Do not miss this opportunity to exchange knowledge and network with the global LTER community and further interested researchers and stakeholders.

The Organizing Committee cordially invites you to participate in the ILTER 3rd OSM 2024, to be held in October 14-19, 2024, at Xishuangbanna.

We look forward to meeting with you in China in October!
