TERN’s Biennial Science Symposium – call for abstracts

The TERN Science Symposium 2023 is a forum for sharing transdisciplinary and traditional approaches to ecosystem science research, technological development, data system innovation, collaboration and action.

“World‑class climate and environmental science is required to inform successful adaptation approaches that will help protect communities, infrastructure, industries, environments and biodiversity”

2021 National Research Infrastructure Roadmap

This is an advance invitation to participate in person in Brisbane or via Zoom in the second TERN Biennial Science Symposium – to be held over two days, Wednesday 26 – Thursday 27 July, 2023.

Symposium Themes & Program

In 2023 we are particularly interested to explore how the outputs and outcomes of research by our partners and the TERN science community can or do influence:

  • Land management for sustainable ecosystem services
  • Evidence-based environmental decisions
  • Carbon neutrality
  • Biodiversity stewardship
  • Automated sensors and other technologies for conservation
  • AI, ML, multi-cloud and other big data challenges
  • Environmental scenarios, forecasts and predictions

in any of these areas: agriculture, forestry, mining, public health, tourism, services and consulting, natural hazard risk, renewable energy… 

Presentations that highlight the contribution of Indigenous knowledge will be particularly welcome.
