Most information about the 2022 All Scientists’ Meeting is hosted on the main meeting website, including registration information, schedule, travel info, and more.

This page contains a calendar of pre-ASM events, as well as information about session, poster, social event, or other proposals, see the bottom of this page. Several helpful quick-links are also below, and a list of ASM stories are located in the sidebar.

Pre-ASM Events

A number of workshops, webinars, and meetings to prepare for the All Scientists Meeting are scheduled for this summer and fall. See a brief calendar of the events and dates below. If you have an event scheduled and want to advertise it to a broad audience, please contact Gabriel De La Rosa (


Posters | In-person reservations closed. Contact your site PI or the Network Office for late submissions.

Virtual posters | Submissions open until August 16

Posters. Posters offer a great way for individual researchers and students to receive thoughtful feedback on their research in a relaxed environment and connect with others doing similar work. To enhance meaningful interactions at the poster session, we will be limiting each site to a maximum of four in-person posters. Please consult within your site to select poster presenters. Sites and individuals may submit additional posters (beyond the 4-per-site limit) for online-only presentation. In-person posters should be brought to the venue and the presenter must be available on-site. Online posters and 3-minute prerecorded description must be uploaded no later than September 16, 2022.

Workshop tracks | Submissions closed

Workshop tracks consist of groups of 2-3 workshops, offered over the three days of the meeting and scheduled to avoid internal conflicts. Proposers should consider how each session can build on outcomes from prior workshops in the series. For example — a series focused on a new cross-site experimental design might move from background to brainstorming to shaping a specific proposal; or a series focused on community engagement might move from identifying barriers to principles of inclusive communication to strategic planning. 

Track submission is closed. Approved tracks are:

  • Characterizing long-term pulse dynamics among ecosystems | John Kominoski, Jenn Rudgers, Kris Hall
  • Advancing synthesis science through harmonized data products | Eric Sokol, Corinna Gries, Sydne Record
  • Ecosystem response to climate change at LTER sites | Julia Jones, Charley Driscoll, Brooke Petaluna
  • Integrating Arts & Humanities: Research and Best Practices | Mary Beth Leigh, Lissy Goralnik, Willis Jenkins
  • Justice and Co-production of Knowledge: A Cross-site Agenda | Abigail York, Forrest Fleischman, Michelle Hale

Workshops | Submissions closed

The workshop schedule is now live on our meeting app, Sched. Log in to check it out, create your personal schedule, and add profile information so that you can connect with colleagues across the Network.

Social events | Please contact the LNO directly to discuss ideas

The Tuesday evening poster session and the Thursday evening barbecue will be all-hands events – but on Wednesday evening, we’re inviting ideas for a smorgasbord of social events. Want to organize a jam session? A trivia contest? An art display? A storytelling session? A reprise of the raucous Idea Café from 2018? Or something else entirely? Send us a brief proposal and we’ll select 5 or more events that we will help bring to fruition.

Exhibit Space | Target deadline: July 15, 2022

Related networks and programs may request exhibition space in the foyer of the plenary hall. Please contact Marty Downs,, for further details.

Field trips

Field trips: The Monterey Peninsula has great natural beauty – with extraordinary beaches, hiking, wildlife, and SCUBA diving. It is also home to a wide variety of cultural institutions, including the renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the Steinbeck Center.

The LTER Network Office is unable to assist with field trip coordination, but we recommend those who are interested in self-organizing excursions use the LTER Hub and the meeting platform to find others with similar interests. We also request that you focus on days and hours outside of planned meeting events.
