Update 08/09/2021:  You can now view our preliminary agenda. Remember to submit your abstract or proposal for a breakout session before Aug 13!

Once again, we will host the meeting fully online. Given the turmoil of the past year, we thought the theme ‘Reflect | Connect: AmeriFlux in 2021’ appropriate, and look forward to connecting with you all this Fall. There will be no registration or abstract submission costs, and as always the meeting is open to all members of the community.

Registration is open now! Register for free by Sept 17.

Conference Format

This meeting will encompass live sessions of science talks, interactive virtual poster sessions through gather, interactive breakout discussions, Early career events for networking and professional development, an update from the AmeriFlux Management Project, a special session on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and more! A tentative agenda will be posted shortly.

This year, we particularly encourage submissions of team presentations or interactive formats. Science is a team effort! Submit a talk abstract with multiple presenting authors, include Early Career team members to present a slide or engage in the chat – be creative!

As always, we will devote time to breakout discussions that allow for interaction and brainstorming. If YOU would like to lead a breakout session, submit a description through this form by August 13. For some inspiration, find the list of breakout topics from last year here.
