Sixth Annual Northwest Climate Conference
November 4-5, 2015 | Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
Abstracts for oral and poster presentations, as well as proposals for special sessions, are due by 11:00 pm Pacific on Friday, June 26, 2015. 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 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.
About the conference. The NW Climate Conference (formerly known as the Pacific Northwest Climate Science Conference) annually brings together more than 250 researchers and practitioners from around the region to discuss scientific findings, challenges, and solutions related to the impacts of climate on people, natural resources, and infrastructure in the northwestern United States and southwestern Canada. The conference aims to stimulate a place-based and cross-disciplinary exchange of information about emerging climate, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science in the NW. The conference also provides a forum for the presentation of emerging policy and management goals, objectives, and information needs related to regional climate impacts and adaptation. Conference participants include policy- and decision-makers, resource managers, and scientists from academia, public agencies, sovereign tribal nations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector. Emphasis is on talks that are comprehensible to a wide audience on topics of broad interest.
