With this year’s Ecological Society of Australia (ESA) conference kicking off this Monday, it’s high-time we showcase what TERN related events will be happening at the conference.

This year’s ESA conference will be held in Fremantle from 28 November to 2 December and TERN will yet again be a major sponsor of the event.  TERN staff and associated researchers will be running a booth that will provide conference goers with the perfect outlet for learning more about TERN and our research infrastructure or for some, just a place to catch-up with a friendly face.

TERN is also sponsoring the conference’s opening plenary session on Monday the 28th, which features a keynote address on the application of ecology in an age of extinction by professor John Woinarski.

In addition to the booth and plenary, there are also an eciting TERN workshop on Friday 2 December that you might be interested in checking out:

 

TERN Workshop

Working with Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network

Friday 2 December 2016, 1330-1630

Participation fee: nil

Ecosystem science is becoming more collaborative and data intensive than before. National infrastructures like Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) plays a crucial role in bringing together significant ecosystem data collections and make them available for research use.

The workshop will provide a practical, hands-on session on how to search access and use TERN data collections along with general knowledge on the use of TERN infrastructure. The workshop will be practically oriented and participants are requested to bring their laptops. The workshop will also provide some insight into a future direction of TERN, as well as allowing users to provide feedback on improvements they would like to see.

The workshop is aimed at anybody who uses Terrestrial ecosystem data in their day-to-day activities; this includes environmental scientists, ecologists, research students and researchers from academia, government and industries. Participants are requested to bring their laptop for practical training.

Inclusions: afternoon tea
