Call for Abstracts: How do we do research on climate change?

Climate Change Research Group Open Meeting

Wednesday 29 January 2014, King’s College London

You are cordially invited to the 2014 Open Meeting of the Climate Change Research Group (CCRG), to be hosted by King’s College London on Wednesday 29 January 2014. The meeting is open to all academics working within the field of climate and climate change, but is particularly aimed at PhD students, and covers all disciplines within the context of climate change, including social, political and physical science.

The title of the meeting is “How do we do research on climate change?” and will cover issues such as whether our research addresses the same goals and tackles the same climate change agenda. The meeting will include short presentations from postgraduates (focusing on methods used rather than actual findings), as well as a number of short talks and a roundtable discussion with leading academics.

In the first instance, please email Charlie Williams (C.J.R.Williams@reading.ac.uk) for a registration form. You are also warmly invited (and indeed encouraged) to submit an abstract for a short presentation along the above themes. There will be a limited amount of funding for PhD students, to cover registration and travel expenses. If you would like to apply for this, please state your reasons along on your registration form.

Please note that spaces are limited, so please email as soon as possible and by 1 December 2013 at the latest.
