Second Annual Conference

Climate Change: Scenarios, Impacts and Policy

29-30 September 2014 – Ca’ Foscari University of Venice

Call for Papers 2014

 

 

The Italian Society for Climate Sciences (SISC) is pleased to announce its Second Annual Conference on “Climate Change: Scenarios, Impacts and Policy. The Conference will be held on September 29-30, 2014 at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

 

The Conference aims to involve scientists, researchers and policy makers, whose activities are focused on different aspects of climate change, its impacts and related policies.

 

The main objectives of the Conference are to:

Develop a platform for sharing and discussing between the different disciplines that study climate dynamics and their interactions with the environment and society;

Promote a constructive and transdisciplinary dialogue between scientists, policy makers, service providers and the general public;

Foster scientific dialogue on mitigation policies and sustainable growth;

Deepen the understanding of climate change impacts and the best adaptation strategies.

 

The Call for Papers is now open and we invite you to submit papers on the topics of the Conference explained below.

 

UNDER 40 AWARD

SISC aims to encourage and promote the involvement of young researchers to contribute to the advancement of scientific research.
