|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 12:00pm on day Second of the month, repeating indefinitely

Virtual update sessions (LTER IMC Virtual Water Cooler) are held on a regular basis by video tele-conferencing (VTC). These sessions have been successful in disseminating knowledge and facilitate a more focused annual meeting. They encourage discussion and collaboration among site IMs. The main focus has been to move the network-wide projects forward (i.e., working groups). Notes from these sessions are available online: http://im.lternet.edu/home/meetings/virtualupdates.

The current schedule is the second Monday of the month from 3pm – 4pm Eastern. (Monday 12pm-1pm Pacific.).
