11 July 2023 to 13 July 2023

The FLUXNET Community Council is very excited to announce the first FLUXNET conference in over five years. The meeting will be held in person, with remote virtual participation options, and is hosted at Czech Globe – Global Change Research Institute CAS and Mendel University in Brno, and sponsored by Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS). The programme includes plenary talks, lightning talks, posters, and plenty of time for networking over coffee.

The virtual registrations are still open. You can register free of charge by following this link.

We will also be hosting an optional field trip on July 14th to the flux site CZ-Lnz and nearby Zámek Lednice castle.
