7th Annual Northwest Climate Conference
November 14-16, 2016


Abstract submission is NOW OPEN.

Abstracts for oral and poster presentations, as well as proposals for special sessions, are due by 11pm on Friday, July 29. Submissions are requested for a range of topics related to regional climate, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science and practice. Presentations and special sessions that connect science to management decisions, climate mitigation activities, economic studies of climate, climate impacts on recreation, and the implementation of adaptation actions are strongly encouraged. Note that poster submissions are considered separate from oral submissions, meaning that a lead author can submit abstracts for an oral presentation as well as a poster presentation.

Submit Oral/Poster Presentation Abstract       Submit Special Session Proposal


The goal of this conference is to create a dialogue between scientists and managers, which means speaking a shared language. All oral presenters will be required to sign a pledge stating that they will adhere to a set of best communications practices. In this spirit of moving toward better communications, for the first time we will be accepting video abstracts. In lieu of a written abstract, feel free to submit a 2 minute video describing your presentation. The video does not need to have high production value and self-shot videos from cell phones will work. Those who submit videos may receive preference for oral speaking slots.

Please see this example: video abstract

Guidelines for abstract submission:

Written abstracts: please submit using the Google Form (link coming soon)
          • No more than 300 words maximum.

Video abstracts: please send the video to Kathie Dello (email) with the subject line "VIDEO ABSTRACT from [your name]".
          • Two minutes maximum (anything longer will be disqualified).
          • We will not be able to offer technical assistance in shooting the video.
