The International LTER Network is pleased to announce its first global Open Science Meeting open to all experts involved in LTER, interested researchers and stakeholders. ILTER is a 'network of networks', a global network of research sites located in a wide array of ecosystems. ILTER's focus is on long-term, site-based research and monitoring.

Topical research themes will be addressed in plenary, break-away sessions and workshops. Experience from site-based to global LTER in one conference at a world-class biodiversity destination, and take advantage of ample opportunities for networking and coordination across ecosystems.

ILTER will also use the opportunity to engage a range of powerful international partners of LTER in global change research and policy.

  • Nitrogen impacts on ecosystems structure and function.
  • Carbon and water cycles under climate change.
  • Towards sustainable usage of ecosystem services (local, regional & global).
  • Drivers of biodiversity across scales.
  • Data integration and interoperability linking global scale ecosystem research and environmental monitoring.
  • Linking local, regional and global Earth system observations and models.
  • Long-term studies of population dynamics.
  • Long-term changes in nutrient cycling
