Call for Abstracts
The Conference aims to transcend the typical discipline-based science conference to stimulate and develop a place-based understanding of the connections between climate and decisions that affect the people and resources in the region. We seek presentations, either oral or poster, that describe the region’s climate variability and change over time; connections between climate and forest, water, fish, and wildlife resources; climate-related natural hazards such as wildfire, drought, flooding, invasive species and shoreline change; and the emerging science of ocean acidification.
We also seek case studies of efforts to incorporate science into planning, policy, and resource management programs and decisions; new approaches to data mining or data development; decision support tools and services related to climate adaptation; and fresh approaches or new understanding of the challenges of communicating climate science.
We invite you to organize a cluster of abstracts around a theme that might be used to design a special session. Please contact the conference chair for instructions.
Authors will be notified by July 19th regarding the acceptance or rejection of their abstract. Oral presenters will be given one week (until July 26th) to complete a short training requirement on good presentation practices.
