February 15, 2010
To build on discussions started by the Distinguished Lecture Series on the Bioeconomy and Global Climate Change, organizers of the symposium "Climate Change Vulnerabilities and Opportunities: Michigan and Beyond" have issued a call for proposals for research and informational sessions, as well as posters. The symposium, sponsored by the Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station, will take place April 26-27, 2010, at the Kellogg Center on the MSU campus.
Topics will range from the economic and social effects of climate change and business and government response to adaptation strategies and the challenges and opportunities of a green economy.
Research sessions should present results from multiple scientists that address a common theme. Informational sessions can be workshops, roundtable discussions or descriptions of programs. Both research and informational sessions should be 90 minutes long. Posters can highlight research results or describe programs.
To submit a proposal for a session or a poster, visit the symposium submissions Web site. All proposals are due by Feb. 15.
The symposium is organized by Tom Dietz, MSU assistant vice president for environmental research, and Jinhua Zhao, MAES economics researcher. For more information, visit the symposium Web site.
