GLP Open Science Meeting

For the second time, after attending the GLP-OSM 2014 in Berlin, IIASA’s ESM Program will join this prestigious conference under the Future Earth Network with an expert delegation. The major objective for ESM is to provide the global land use modeling community with successful examples of policy relevant economic land use modeling (forest, agriculture, renewable energy systems) in the 3 tropical basins of Brazil, Congo Basin and Indonesia.

The Third Open Science Meeting of the Global Land Project is be held from 24-27th October 2016 at China National Convention Center, Beijing.

The Global Land Project (GLP) is an interdisciplinary community of science and practice fostering the study of land systems and the co-design of solutions for global sustainability. It represents the largest international research network in this field.

GLP had its first OSM in October 2010 at Arizona State University, Tempe, USA, and its second OSM in March 2014 at Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany, with more than 600 participants from 50 countries. 

The upcoming third OSM 2016 will be organized by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences under the coordination of Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) and International Project Office (IPO) of GLP. 

The aim of GLP 3rd OSM 2016 is to bring together large parts of the international research community working on land system issues, showcase the width and scope of ongoing research, help build a community in this highly interdisciplinary field, inspire new research, and facilitate review, theory building and application of science in practice.
