The Science@SAFE 2020 virtual conference is today December 14th (8am-11:30am UK time) and will bring together the science and achievements of the past ten years of work at one of the world’s largest ecological experiments. The conference will look at impacts, capacity building, new technologies, carbon and how this project has improved our understanding of oil palm dominated landscapes and the resilience of Borneo’s forest ecosystem. The conference will feature talks, followed by breakout groups for open discussion around topics including hydrology, conservation and forest restoration, biodiversity, disease ecology, carbon and key knowledge and skills gaps. There is a full conference programme on the SAFE website here and attendance is free, you just need to register online via Eventbrite here: Science@SAFE 2020 Tickets, Mon, Dec 14, 2020 at 8:00 AM | Eventbrite.
The conference will be held using Zoom: the plenary talks will be presented as a Zoom Webinar and then a separate session will be used for the breakout groups. Links to both of these will be sent out from Eventbrite before the conference. You will need to download the latest version of Zoom to make sure that you can attend the webinar and participate in the breakout rooms. You should be able to use Zoom on a laptop or a smartphone.
