Climate Engineering Conference 2017: Critical Global Discussions
Call for non-presenting participant application: Deadline August 31, 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 those wishing to attend the conference as non-presenting participants to submit an application. Applications must be submitted by August 31, 2017. Successful applicants will subsequently be invited to register for the conference.

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