Climate Observation Conference: last days to submit abstracts – deadline 1st June!

GCOS Climate Observation Conference 17-19 October 2022, Darmstadt Germany

Last days to submit abstracts!

The 2nd GCOS Climate Observation Conference will gather experts of climate science, climate observations, technology innovation, data scientists, climate services, users of data information and funding agencies to discuss and develop pathways towards a fit-for-purpose climate observing system for 2050 and beyond.

The call for abstracts is open until 1 June. Six themes are proposed for the submissions and are the basis for the Conference sessions: 

  • Climate Observing Networks
  • Climate Extremes and Tipping points
  • Climate Observations to support Climate Policies
  • Climate Data Records
  • Data Processing and Management
  • The Global Climate Observing system in the future: GCOS 2050

Systematic climate observations are fundamental for understanding, predicting, mitigating and adapting to climate change,” says Sabrina Speich, the chair of the Conference Scientific Committee. “This need is increasing with the growing urgency for adaptation and mitigation measures. With this Conference we want to make progress towards a fully implemented and sustainable global observing system for climate applications.”

Registration is free of charge and virtual attendance will be possible. 

Please, help us spread the word and circulate this information to any interested person.  

Travel grants will be available for early career researchers coming from the Global South and presenting abstracts.  

We look forward to seeing you in Darmstadt in October 2022
