Climate Change Studies Symposium at UT-Austin

Climate Change Studies Symposium at The University of Texas at Austin

A symposium to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and research

Over the past decade, the number of faculty who research Climate Change and the impacts have developed and broadened. The Environmental Science Institute invites you to participate in an afternoon of introductions and discussion of the state of climate change research at UT. This event will be a unique chance to meet other researchers and initiate interdisciplinary collaborations. The brief symposium will have a series of panel discussions. Panel topics will include: climate modeling, impacts on ecological systems, implications for law and policy, and upcoming interdisciplinary funding opportunities in climate change research.

Date: Monday, Feb. 22, 2010  Time: 12:30-5:00 PM  Place: Avaya Auditorium in the ACES Building on the UT campus at 24th and Speedway

The objectives of this symposium are to introduce UT-Austin climate-related researchers to each other and inform the research other of their research expertise, interests and areas of mutual interest. This event will foster interactions between UT-Austin climate-related researchers, and discuss funding opportunities for collaboration and funding at UT and at local, state and federal-agency levels.  It also will be an opportunity to demonstrate the depth of climate-related research at UT-Austin for local, state and federal agencies and prospective students.

The Climate Change Studies Symposium is co sponsored by the Environmental Science Institute, the Center for Sustainable Development, and the Center for Global Energy, International Arbitration, and Environmental Law at The University of Texas at Austin.
