Project kickoff - iLand on its way

Thursday 28 of May, 2009
Around the official project start date, April 1st 2009, we held two kick-off meetings in order to get the project team together and the work on the project finally started. On March 30th the Austrian-based part of the project team (still including myself, at that date) gathered for a project kickoff, reviewing the proposed task and work structure and discussing approaches potentially relevant for the modeling tasks at hand. Having two weeks to digest this impulse (and also to get established in the lovely town of Corvallis, Or) iLand work started here in Oregon in mid April. The second half of the kick-off round together with Tom Spies and Rob Scheller was held soon thereafter, on May 6th. Overall, discussion and comments were very stimulating and diverse – and I’m looking forward to catalyzing some of them in bringing together ideas from individual-based population dynamics and landscape ecology through the project.
