1. Call for Applications
DISCCRS VIII Interdisciplinary Climate Change Research Symposium
October 12-19, 2013
Colorado Springs, Colorado

Organizers of the "Interdisciplinary Climate Change Research Symposium"
announce a call for applications. This symposium is for early-career
climate change researchers. The symposium is hosted by Dissertations
Initiative for the Advancement of Climate Change Research (DISCCRS), and
is scheduled for 12-19 October 2013 in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The goal is to catalyze international, interdisciplinary collegial
networks and foster collaborative interdisciplinary research and dynamic
interactions between science and society to enable better understanding
of, and response to, the myriad challenges posed by climate change.
During the weeklong symposium, 30 competitively selected recent PhD
graduates will share research; engage in discussions with peers,
mentors, and funding agency representatives; and hone teambuilding and
communication skills.

Applicants must have completed a PhD between 1 September 2010 and 28
February 2013. All fields are welcome, but applicants should be
conducting research relevant to the study of climate change, its
impacts, or its societal implications. While U.S. citizens and residents
have preference, some funds are available for non-U.S. participants.

Application instructions are available at:
http://disccrs.org/application_instructions.

2. Call for Abstracts
45th International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics
13-17 May 2013
Liege, Belgium

Organizers of the 45th International Liege Colloquium on Ocean Dynamics
announce a call for abstracts. Abstracts must be received by Sunday, 13
January 2013. The colloquium will be held 13-17 May 2013 in Liege,
Belgium.

Oceanic primary production is a key component of the marine carbon,
oxygen, and nutrient cycles as well as the base of the marine food web.
Over the past two decades substantial efforts were deployed to evaluate
oceanic primary production. These efforts include in situ measurements
of uptake rates using isotopic trace techniques, satellite remote
sensing, autonomous instrumentation for bio-optics, carbon or oxygen
measurements, and the development of semi-empirical to complex
biogeochemical models. The 2013 Liege Colloquium will investigate new
insights related to the evaluation of primary production and the study
of the dynamics between physical forcing and ocean productivity
responses at various physical and temporal scales. Particular attention
will be focused on the variability at the synoptic to seasonal scales
and how it complicates our ability to sample primary production and
derive large-scale, climate-driven primary production budgets.

Abstracts covering all aspects of oceanic primary production are
welcome. There are approximately 40 travel grants available for young
scientists. To apply for travel assistance, abstract submission should
be accompanied with a letter of request sent to Charlotte Peelen
(oceanphys@ulg.ac.be).

Abstract submission deadline: Sunday, 13 January 2013.

3. REMINDER: Call for Abstracts
Arctic Science Summit Week
13-19 April 2013
Krakow, Poland

The abstract submission deadline for the 2013 Arctic Science Summit Week
(ASSW) is Thursday, 6 January 2013. The meeting is entitled "The Arctic
Hub - Regional and Global Perspectives," and will be held 13-19 April
2013 in Krakow, Poland.

ASSW is an annual gathering of international organizations engaged in
supporting and facilitating arctic research. Its purpose is to provide
opportunities for international coordination, collaboration, and
cooperation in all fields of arctic science and to combine science and
management meetings.

The 2013 ASSW will include the three-day science symposium. The
symposium will include disciplinary sessions such as atmosphere
processes and global climate connections, cryospheric changes, marine
processes and variability, terrestrial ecosystem responses to
environmental stressors, and the impact of global changes on arctic
society. Topics for cross-cutting sessions include arctic people and
resources (opportunities, challenges, and risks); applying local and
traditional knowledge to better understanding of the changing arctic;
arctic system science for regional and global sustainability; and the
changing north (predictions and scenarios).

Abstract submission deadline: Thursday, 6 January 2013.

To register for the conference and to submit an abstract, please go to:
http://www.assw2013.us.edu.pl/registration.

4. Call for Papers
North Atlantic Forum 2013
13-15 June 2013
Holar in Hjaltadalur, Iceland

Organizers for the North Atlantic Forum 2013, entitled "Rural Tourism -
Challenges in Changing Times: Community, Experience, Economy, and
Environment," announce a call for papers. The conference will be held
13-15 June 2013 in Holar in Hjaltadalur, Iceland.

This conference will explore the challenges, practices of and the
opportunities in smart and sustainable rural tourism. The program will
address the rural tourism development challenges through four themes -
Community, Experience, Economy, and the Environment. The conference will
feature discussions, presentations, workshops, and tours, as well as
plenty of informal and networking opportunities. Organizers invite
papers from community practitioners, academics, consultants, government
policy advisors, and others.

Abstract submission deadline: Tuesday, 15 January 2015.

Details on the themes, instructions for abstract submission, and
additional information can be found at the conference website:

5. Registration Available
SCAR Biology Symposium: Life in Antarctica
16-19 July 2013
Barcelona, Spain

Organizers of the 11th Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR)
Biology Symposium announce that registration is now available. The
symposium, entitled 'Life in Antarctica: Boundaries and Gradients in a
Changing Environment,' will be held 16-19 July 2013 in Barcelona, Spain.

This symposium links the functional importance of land and water
ecosystems and their biocomplexity under an ecosystemic perspective in
order to understand: the Antarctic trophic web; effects of human impacts
such as the ozone hole, climate change, and the increase in tourism
activities; the flexible boundaries and dynamic gradients in Antarctic
ecosystem; and the Antarctic marine biodiversity through its patterns,
processes, and trends. A preliminary schedule is available on the
symposium website.

Early registration deadline: 30 April 2013.

To register for the symposium, please go to:
