ILTER annual Coordinating Committee Meeting and ILTER EAP Scientific Conference, Taichung, Taiwan, 15-19 October 2018
During the week 14-19 October 2018, ILTER will hold its annual Coordinating Committee Meeting in Taichung, Taiwan; and the ILTER East Asia Pacific (EAP) regional network will conduct a scientific conference with the topic
Resilience of Ecosystems in Natural and Human-dominated Landscapes
The event will be hosted by the Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute, Tunghai University, TERN (Taiwan Ecological Research Network).
ILTER Open Science Meetings (OSM)
Once every three years, the world-wide Long-Term-Ecosystem-Research community including further interested researchers and stakeholders gathers at the ILTER OSM hosted by one of its members. In 2019, the second ILTER OSM will be held in Leipzig, Germany, hosted by the Umweltforschungszentrum (UFZ). We expect that it will be equally successful as the previous one and again attract a large number of delegates. In 2016, the South African Environmental Observation Network (SAEON) hosted the first ILTER OSM in Skukuza, Krüger National Park.
ILTER and LTER France joint conference 2017
ILTER and LTER France (including Zones Ateliers and Critical Zones Observatories) have convened in Nantes from 2-8 October, 2017. The week was structured as follows: Monday a national LTER France (ZA/CZO) meeting, Tuesday a joint scientific conference for LTER France (ZA/CZO) and ILTER participants, Wednesday morning the public part of the ILTER CC to inform the scientific conference participants about aspects of ILTER which will be of interest to them. Wednesday afternoon, the internal ILTER CC business meeting started and lasted until Friday evening. The whole event was followed by a two-day field trip for all participants.
ILTER Coordinating Committee Meetings
The ILTER Coordinating Committee (CC) the governing body of the ILTER Network, convenes annually. These meetings are hosted by one of the Member Networks and in most cases, they are held in conjunction with a scientific event. The 2017 CC meeting will be held in Nantes, hosted by LTER France, see above, and the 2018 CC meeting will be held in Taiwan, hosted by TERN, the Taiwanesee LTER.
ILTER Regional Group Meetings
The ILTER Regional Groups hold meetings for the purpose of conducting an in-depth exchange more closely related to their specific concerns than this would be possible at the all-ILTER meetings. LTER Europe will hold its annual meeting in conjunction with a scientific conference 28 Nov. to 1 Dec. 2017 in Malaga, Spain, hosted by the University of Granada. Further information will be provided soon.
