Call for Submissions

Climate Engineering Conference 2017: Critical Global Discussions

Call for submissions: Deadline June 30, 2017

Building on the success of the first large, international and transdisciplinary conference on climate engineering in 2014 (Climate Engineering Conference 2014—CEC14), the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) is aiming to once again bring together the research, policy and civic communities for critical global discussions on climate engineering. The Climate Engineering Conference 2017 (CEC17) will be held at the Umweltforum in Berlin, Germany, from October 9 – 12, 2017. It will address approaches for both Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) and Solar Radiation Management (SRM, also known as Albedo Modification), situating them within broader discussions of climate change and, in particular, mitigation and adaptation.

The conference will convene discussions of the vast and diverse array of questions that climate engineering raises for disciplinary research, interdisciplinary collaboration, and transdisciplinary engagement.

The conference organizers would like to invite abstract submissions from those interested in presenting their work at the conference. The deadline for abstract submissions is June 30, 2017.

Abstracts should address one of the topics of the sessions that are accepting abstract submissions (see PDF below), and should include an indication as to which session(s) they are being submitted to. Abstracts should not exceed 200 words in length.

If your abstract is selected, you will be invited to either present a short paper at a session, or to contribute to the conference in the form of a poster. If you wish to directly elect for a poster, please indicate this in your submission. Posters will be on display for the duration of the conference and there will be a timetabled slot for a dedicated poster session, during which presenters are asked to be available by their posters to discuss their research.

Please note that there will be a nominal conference fee of €150 for participants.
