The Third Open Science Meeting of the Global Land Project (GLP 3rd OSM 2016) will be held from 24 to 7th October at China National Convention Center, in 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. 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.
Sessions will be organized under four main themes:
1) Managing trade-offs and synergies for sustainable land systems
2) Land systems and the water, food, energy nexus
3) Land systems in an urbanizing and telecoupled world
4) Novel land governance systems to manage natural resources
