2nd Forum Carpaticum

From data to knowledge, from knowledge to action

Stará Lesná, Slovakia, 30 May – 2 June 2012

The 1st FC2010 identified the need for better information on data generation, availability, and accessibility in the Carpathians, especially related to pan-Carpathian datasets. FC2012 will address this need by covering the whole Data-Knowledge-Action cycle, i.e. focusing on how data are generated and transformed into useful knowledge, how the knowledge is transferred to policy and practice, and how it can feed back to research planning. Apart from identifying the recent state of the art, the FC2012 wants to discuss and propose measures to improve the Data-Knowledge-Action cycle.

The conference programme will offer plenary and parallel sessions, workshops, and poster presentations. The FC2012 will discuss the data-knowledge-action circle in three overarching and overlapping themes:

– Abiotic Environment
– Biodiversity and ecosystems
– Human Dimensions
