Deadline extended for abstract submissions for the the Second Nordic International Conference on Climate Change Adaptation
Deadline for abstract submissions extended to March 30, 2012!
Call for Abstracts:
You are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentations in the parallel sessions, as well as abstracts for posters. We seek relevant and high-quality contributions from researchers, practitioners and decision-makers. Abstracts will be evaluated by a scientific committee comprising Nordic and external experts.
Accepted abstracts will be published in the abstract book given to all delegates attending the Conference upon registration in Helsinki.
Abstracts are invited on all issues relevant to climate change adaptation in the Nordic countries and beyond, especially those that explore aspects of importance for adaptation decision-making. Initially, we are structuring the themes of the meeting according to five broad headings (see below – bulleted sub-topics are merely illustrative). These themes will be refined into sessions as submissions are received.
1.Risk assessment and impact response (presenting observed and projected impacts of anthropogenic climate change, their analysis and associated uncertainties)
2.Vulnerability and adaptive capacity (examining factors that influence the exposure and sensitivity of regions, sectors and societies to climate change and determine their ability to adapt)
3.Building resilience (exploring social and technical options for enhancing society's capability to respond to a changing climate in a flexible and timely manner)
4.Policy development and implementation (discussing adaptation policy development and the implementation of adaptation in practice, their evaluation, and case examples)
5. Cross cutting issues in adaptation (considering issues that bridge across or may fall between traditional disciplines, sectors or regions)
Abstract submission guidelines:
Abstracts should be submitted through the online system no later than midnight (EET*), Thursday 9 March 2012. Abstracts must be written in English following the instructions given for online submissions (maximum 2500 characters including spaces but excluding title and author details).

Abstracts will be evaluated by members of the Conference Scientific Committee and an initial decision on whether an abstract is accepted or not will be made by the end of March 2012 and posted at the Conference website. This is to assist applicants in planning their participation ahead of the "early bird" registration deadline on 16 April 2012. Authors of successful abstracts will be informed of the preferred format of their presentation (e.g. oral, poster, panel), proposed session and timetabling as the programme develops, and no later than the end of April.
