Founded in 2009, the Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network is brought together by a common concern for the science of, and social responses to, climate change. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.
The Thirteenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses features research addressing the following annual themes. Each year we also focus on a Special Focus that presents a timely challenge.
THEME 1: THE NATURE OF EVIDENCE
THEME 2: ASSESSING IMPACTS IN DIVERSE ECOSYSTEMS
THEME 3: HUMAN IMPACTS AND RESPONSIBILITY
THEME 4: TECHNICAL, POLITICAL, AND SOCIAL RESPONSES
2021 Special Focus: Responding to Climate Change as an Emergency
We welcome the submission of proposals at any time of the year. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission.

A small number of Emerging Scholar Awards are given to outstanding graduate students and emerging scholars who have an active research interest in the conference themes. The Award provides a strong professional development opportunity for early career academics—meeting experts in the field, interacting with colleagues from other parts of the world, and creating networks and lasting connections. Awardees are invited to attend the conference to present their work and play a critical organizational role in the conference by leading discussions, chairing parallel sessions, and providing assistance in session rooms.
Applications are open to those pursuing research degrees, post- and graduate students, as well as early career faculty.
