Activities

SAIMES fosters integrative activities to support a geographically and disciplinarily diverse community. Capacity building, training, and fostered collaboration support an international community of scientists and scholars that is inclusive and encouraging of the next generation of Earth system scientists.

Activities of AIMES

Open science conferences

AIMES organize Open Science Conferences for the entire AIMES community every 2 to 4 years to provide the AIMES community a platform for interaction and facilitate collaboration. Among the goals of Open Science Conference is to support and stimulate community building among Earth system researchers working across scales and disciplines to explore how emerging Earth system science knowledge can inform policy and practice in the sustainable governance of the Earth system.

Workshops

Synthesis and agenda setting workshops are activities centered on a specific objective that contributes to the advancement of land system science. Typical outputs of synthesis workshops are high-level scientific papers or meta-studies and theoretical contributions to land system science. Synthesis workshops can be proposed and organized by the IPO, SSC members, and nodal offices, as well as regular GLP community members, in coordination with IPO and SSC. Where relevant to GLP, workshops may be labelled as ‘GLP endorsed workshops’ in consultation with the IPO. Requests for assistance in the organization of such workshops by the IPO or SSC members may be made. For more information on organizing a GLP endorsed workshop contact the IPO.

Supporting the sharing and availability of Land System datasets

GLP acknowledges the importance of sharing data on land systems, including data on underlying  drivers and impacts of land system change. Therefore, (links to) new datasets may be announced in the digital newsletter or on the website. GLP supports an open sharing strategy of data and research tools and will strongly promote the open availability of data and software.

Newsletters/e-news

GLP produces monthly digital newsletters ‘E-News’ that contain announcements of GLP community relevant activities (such as conferences and workshops), relevant vacancies and may also highlight publications. Consult the Science Plan for more information on policies for highlighting publications.
