Date: July 12-13, 2012.
On behalf of the International Advisory Board, I am pleased to
announce the Call for Papers for the Fourth International Conference
on Climate Change: Impacts and Responses and the call for submissions
to the peer-reviewed International Journal of Climate Change: Impacts
The International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts and Responses
will be held 12-13 July 2012 in partnership with the Climate Impacts
Group at The University of Washington, Seattle, Washington, USA.
This interdisciplinary conference is for scholars, teachers, and
practitioners from any professional discipline who share an interest
in-and concern for-the societal impacts of climate change. Within
this broad context, this year’s conference theme emphasizes local and
regional responses to global issues of climate change and impact.
Proposals are invited that address this theme through one of the
a) Scientific Evidence: What are our sources of evidence for global,
regional, and local climate impacts? What methods and resources do we
use that can be shared with others to help them construct knowledge
useful to their regions and communities?
b) Ecosystem Impacts: How are specific ecosystems being managed to
reduce or divert the impact of global or regional climate change
effects? What lessons can be learned from studies of successful and
c) Human Impacts: How do we conceptualize the dual roles of humans
as agents of climate change and as victims of climate change impacts?
What are the results of climate change in developed and developing
worlds? In agricultural and urban communities? Across different
types of geological, political, and social environments?
d) Framing Responses: What initiatives, resource management and
educational strategies can we design to address the environmental,
human, and societal impacts of climate change? What roles do
politics and government policy play at the local, regional,
international, and global levels? How can we predict and prepare for
the social, political, and legal ramifications of new initiatives?
Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, posters/exhibits, or
colloquia are invited. The deadline for the next round in the call
for papers (a title and short abstract) is 07 February 2012. Future
deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this
