Agenda (final version)                    Time plan

Structure of meeting

The structure of the meeting will follow the scheme developed at the LTER-Europe meeting in Sevilla.

The meeting will have four foci:

  1. Open space event: 'Science meets sites':
    Scientists working in the field of LTER and LTSER across disciplines and networks will be invited to develop project ideas that build on LTER sites and/or LTER data. As tested in Sevilla for the 2008 LTER vegetation survey these projects will be presented and discussed with the LTER community in order to create project teams of researchers and scientific site co-ordinators further elaborating the project ideas into concrete proposals.
  2. LTSER
  3. Establishment of LTER-Europe expert panels
  4. Work on the final deliverables of ALTER-Net (LTER-Europe Best Examples Book, LTER-Europe Management Plan etc.)


The meeting will take place in the RIU Palace Bonanza Playa in Palma de Majorca. It provides facilities for working and relaxing in the same building.

More Technical Notes

Actions for those planning to attend 

All: Please register!

All: Communicate the idea and date of the Open Space event to all researchers, institutes, networks etc. you know that might be interested in developing scientific projects using our network, its facilities and data. To support this effort we are preparing a folder for the conference map of the EURECO conference in Leipzig and will deliver this folder to all of you by the end of next week.

All: As there is still enough time and some space in the agenda: please, communicate ideas and expectations for the forthcoming conference in Majorca

Site co-ordinators and platform managers: Please provide ONE POSTER PER SITE or PLATORM, 2 print-outs and a copy of the file. We want to enable us as a network to provide powerful prooves of existance on an ad hoc basis. The availability of a poster library at the LTER-Europe secretariat would strongly support this.

National Network Representatives: Please provide ONE POSTER per national network. The reasoning behind this idea is given under item 4 (above).

Please use this Poster template of LTER-Europe for your posters!

National Network Representatives: Please communicate this information to your national networks and – especially – all scientific site co-ordinators and platform managers

National Network Representatives: Please check, if the attached extract of the LTER-Europe contacts database attached (sorted by countries/names) contains all contacts in your respective country, which should be directly informed by LTER-Europe on occasions like this invitation (especially ALL site co-ordinators and platform managers as discussed/decided in Stara Lesna!). Besides from this feedback we ask you to let us know asap if participants from your country need support to go to Majorca (see above).

National Network Representatives: Please check the ToDo-list adopted in Stara Lesna for ToDos especially relevant for the next LTER-Europe conference!
