The second annual PhD conference of The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change ‘Knowledge Gaps in Climate Change Research – how are you tackling it?’ will be held at the University of East Anglia (UEA) from 11 to 13 April 2012. Its purpose is to facilitate discussion on the knowledge gaps in climate change research, and how PhDs, the Postdocs and Professors of the future, aim to address them.
Abstracts are invited for the four paper sessions and poster sessions, which will reflect Tyndall Centre’s four new themes:
- Land and Water
- Cities and Coasts
- Governance and Behaviour
- Energy and Emissions
Professor Mike Hulme (UEA) will deliver the opening keynote address on ‘Climate change: what sort of knowledge for what sort of politics?’ Among the other confirmed speakers are Professor Bob Watson FRS (Chief Scientific Advisor to DEFRA), Dr. Xianfu Lu (adaptation specialist at the Asian Development Bank), and Richard Gledhill (Head of Climate Change and Carbon Market Services at PricewaterhouseCoopers).
