Event: Data Acquisition from Remote Locations

Location: Sevilleta Field Station, New Mexico

Date: June 10-15, 2012

Website:  http://sevfs.unm.edu/workshop

We are pleased to announce our upcoming training workshop, Data Acquisition from Remote Locations,
sponsored by the Long Term Ecological Research Network Office and the University of New Mexico Sevilleta Field Station. This intensive workshop will be held June 10-15, 2012 at the Sevilleta Field Station in central New Mexico.  We will employ a combination of field demonstrations, lectures, hands-on activities, and discussions focusing on three general topics related to the acquisition and handling of environmental data typical at LTER sites: wireless telemetry and networking, photovoltaic power for instrumentation, and connecting field instrumentation to and programming Campbell dataloggers.

The 2012 All Scientists Meeting (ASM) will once again be held at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado from September 10th to the 13th. The Program Committee, made up of a broad range of people representing the whole LTER community, has worked hard to create a meeting that is both focused and open for scientific interactions at many levels.

Plenary presentations will focus on the ASM theme of “The Unique Role of the LTER Network in the Anthropocene: Collaborative Science across Scales”. There are plans for over 75 Working Group meetings in seven working group sessions, over 400 posters, four evening mixers, and pre-ASM meetings for information managers, graduate students, education representatives, and the LTER Executive Board. Ample free time is integrated within the program to allow for ad-hoc scientific interaction as well. Logistics for the meeting are handled by the LTER Network Office in collaboration with The Schneider Group, a company specializing in meeting organization.
