Since their inception in the 1980s, the triennial LTER All Scientists' Meetings (ASM) have gathered seasoned investigators together with rising stars, and the steady hands that keep it all on track. With today’s breadth of 28 sites across the nation, the meeting of minds from each of the LTER sites—face to face, student to senior scientist, educator to project manager, science communicator to information manager—generates new scientific collaborations that carry on for decades. Many of the Network's most innovative synthesis efforts have emerged from All Scientists' Meetings.

Planning for the 2018 LTER All Scientists' Meeting is underway.
