5th International Climate Change Conference: London
It will address a range of critically important themes relating to the vexing question of climate change. Plenary speakers will include some of the world’s leading thinkers in the fields of climatology and environmental science, as well as numerous paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by researchers and practitioners.
We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia. Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas below will also be considered:
Theme 1: Scientific Evidence
  • What is evidence is there of climate change?
  • Paleoclimatology: the earth’s climate in a long view
  • Climate change today: examining the data
  • Ice cap reduction and glacial melt
  • Sea level change
  • Floods, drought, forest fires, hurricanes and other sporadic events
  • Albedo or measuring the earth’s reflectiveness
  • Meteorology and climate informatics
  • Equilibria and disequilibria: change processes and countervailing tendencies
  • Climate measurement processes, methodologies and technologies
  • Reading complex, dynamic and unstable systems
  • Developing local and global climate modelsChange scenarios: slow, rapid, abrupt or episodic.
Theme 2: Assessing Impacts in Divergent Ecosystems
  • What are the impacts of climate change on natural environments?
  • Ocean currents and el Niño
  • Mountain ecosystem impacts
  • Coastal ecosystem impacts
  • Marine ecosystem impacts
  • Forest and grassland ecosystem impacts
  • Impacts on wilderness and protected areas
  • Impacts on specific biomes
  • Impacts on biodiversity, potential extinctions
  • Hardiness zone migration
  • Regional variations: temperature and rainfall
Theme 3: Human Impacts and Impacts on Humans
What evidence is there that human activity has contributed to climate change, and what are the impacts of climate change on human life?
