Call for Abstracts: Regional Climate Services Workshop 2011

The Pacific Climate Impacts Consortium and the Institute for Coastal Research, Helmholtz Zentrum Geesthacht in Germany, are calling for abstracts in anticipation of the PCIC-hosted Regional Climate Services Workshop to be held at the University of Victoria, November 21-23, 2011.

"Exploring Regional Climate Services: Meeting Stakeholder Needs for Practical Climate Information" will consider the ways in which climate information is communicated to stakeholders, what kind of information stakeholders need, how regional culture influences the flow of information, and the role that regional climate services play in mediating the flow of information. The goal of the workshop is to engage a broad range of climate researchers and representatives from various climate stakeholder groups. The three-day workshop is being sponsored in conjunction with the Pacific Institute for Climate solutions, the University of Victoria and KlimaCampus Hamburg.

Government and industry stakeholders, academic researchers and others interested in bringing value to this timely discussion are encouraged to submit abstracts by September 15, 2011. Visit PCIC's Regional Climate Services 2011 page for more information, which includes an online form for submitting your abstract or registering as a participant in the workshop.
