ExpeER International Conference 2014

24-25 September 2014, Paris

For a link to this event only, use the event permalink

The Earth's rapidly changing environment is putting critical ecosystem services at risk. There are many challenges involved in understanding global environmental changes, and in providing societies with the policy-relevant knowledge base to deal with them. These challenges will reach across many aspects of scientific endeavour.

In this context the Experimentation in Ecosystem Research conference will provide a platform for discussions on cutting-edge technological tools, large-scale integrative experimental design, technical constraints, data access and last but not least ecosystem modelling. The conference will attract speakers and delegates from around the world and will offer opportunities to reinforce global cooperation. Main topics Grand challenges: With the current set of Experimental Research infrastructures in ecosystem science, do we have the capacity to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow? In vitro and in natura : How realistic are they, and how they can be better linked? Technologies: Which emerging technologies could enhance (or are needed for) the performance and services offered by our RIs? Data: Towards an e-infrastructure for ecosystem research - challenges and opportunities Modelling: How accurate is our capacity to forecast and upscale, and what is missing? How can we communicate uncertainty? How do we strike the right balance between modelling and experiments?
