The SC mainly discussed how to proceed with the scientific publication of papers from the IENE conference, as proposed together with papers from other road ecology conferences. The SC have started to prepare a document about the history of IENE for the celebrations of IENE:s 20th birthday this year. An administrational change in the membership registration was decided by the SC and will be announced to all members shortly. The secretariat reported that IENE has got 4 new members since the last SC meeting (from France, Georgia, USA and UK).
*In order to make the work of the Steering committee (SC) more transparent to all members, the SC has decided to regularly publish short summaries of their meetings on the website. IENE members are always free to contact the SC with requests, proposals, questions or issues for discussion.
