The conference covers the following main themes:

- Mapping and modeling the sustainability of land systems
- Land systems in an urbanizing and telecoupling world 
- Land systems and the water, food, energy nexus
- Managing trade-offs and synergies for sustainable land systems
- Novel land governance systems to manage natural resources
Special GLP awards such as best student poster/oral presentation awards, GLP awards, will be launched amid the GLP OSM 2016. Conference outcomes will be published through special issues in academic journals based on the sessions and full papers submitted to the GLP OSM.
