    Dear colleagues,
    You are cordially invited to take part in 2nd joint conference ELLS– IAGLR, “Understanding the Future of Large Lakes under Global Change: implications of Climate Change and Human Impact”, which will be held on 13-19 September 2021 in Northern Water Problems Institute (NWPI), Karelian Research Center, Russian Academy of Sciences in Petrozavodsk, Republic of Karelia, Russia.

    The first ELLS took place in 2006 in Tartu, Estonia and was followed every 3rd year ELLS series. Before these meetings, four International Lake Ladoga and other large lakes symposia were organized during 1992–2002 in Russia. 5th ELLS was organized together with the IAGLR (http://www.iaglr.org/) in September, 2018 in Evian, France at Lake Geneva. Joining these international events is expected to increase the international visibility and foster interaction, partnership, and cooperation in research and management of large lake environments encountering local, regional and global challenges.

    The slogan of ELLS-IAGLR 2 “Understanding the Future of Large Lakes under Global Change: Implications of Climate Change and Human Impact" covers important topics including seasonality in large lakes; long-term trends in water quality and aquatic communities; interplay of sediment micro- and macrobiota in benthic habitats; responses to stressors and climate change; emerging tools for prediction and modeling and many others. Sessions on Lake Baikal are also planned.


    Main Conference Themes:
    • Long-term trends in water quality and aquatic communities;
    • Climate change and human impacts, and their mitigation in large lakes ecosystems
    • Lake “Futures": responses to stressors and climate change, time scales and lags, tools for predictions and dealing with uncertainty.
    • The interplay of sediment, micro- and macrobiota in benthic habitats
    • Food web interactions in large lakes ecosystems.
    • Lake Baikal; modern state, problems and possible ways of solutions.
    • Socio-ecologic-economic aspects and policy support systems for sustainable management of large lakes.
