Cities and Climate Change Science Conference

6 October 2017: proposal and abstract submission deadline!

The conference aims to inspire the next frontier of research focused on the science of cities and climate change. The primary goal of the conference is to assess the state of academic and practice-based knowledge related to cities and climate change, and to establish a global research agenda based on the joint identification of key gaps by the academic, practitioner and urban policy-making communities.

Conference Themes:

  • Cities & climate change (Imperatives for action)
  • Urban emissions, impacts and vulnerabilities (Science and practice of cities)
  • Solutions for the transition to low carbon and climate resilient cities (Science and practice for cities)
  • Enabling transformative climate action in cities (advancing science and advancing cities)

You are invited to submit a proposal for a complete 90-minute session. In addition to complete sessions, proposals for individual contributions (oral presentations in sessions as well as posters) are also invited.

5-7 March 2018

Venue

Edmonton, Canada
