Open Science Conferences

AIMES has an important coordination role for Earth System research worldwide. To support and stimulate community building among Earth system researchers working across scales and disciplines, AIMES organizes open science conferences to provide the AIMES community a platform for interaction. AIMES open science conferences explore how emerging Earth system science knowledge can inform policy and practice in the sustainable governance of the Earth system. Hence, participation is welcome from all branches of Earth System science, with the aspiration of bringing together researchers, practitioners and policy makers to advance understanding of the sustainability of the Earth system today and tomorrow.

Dynamic Global Vegetation Modeling Conference
Full Event Details
The Dynamic Global Vegetation Modeling Conference was established in 2023 to foster interchange among scientists, postdocs, and students who conduct research in modeling, lab and field studies, remote sensing, and data science related to understanding vegetation and land biophysical and biogeochemical dynamics from the molecular to global scales. The conference focus is particularly on dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs) that couple with surface hydrology and/or atmosphere models, and the data and process studies that are needed to inform model physics, parameters, and provide boundary conditions. The conference especially encourages early career scientists to gain valuable feedback on their work in a supportive environment. It provides a forum for all to have the opportunity to connect with others with diverse expertise in the very multidisciplinary endeavor of understanding terrestrial ecosystem dynamics in the context of the Earth system.

Earth System Science: Climate, Global Change and People 
10-13 May 2010
Full Event Details
The AIMES Open Science Conference will present recent advances in the understanding of Earth-system dynamics and highlight new directions in analysing the interactions between humans and their environment. It is intended the conference will help build bridges between the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities, and between policy, assessment and research. The conference will address Earth system questions in the context of past, present and future global environmental changes. Building on the exceptional growth of cross-cutting research over the past 15 years, it will emphasis interdisciplinary synthesis and linkages: between observations and models, biodiversity and climate, the humanities, social and natural sciences, policy, assessment and research.
