We invite people to participate in the second international conference for "Polar Climate and Environmental Change in the Last Millennium", to be held in Torun, Poland, August 24-26, 2015. The aim of the conference is to present scientific achievements, detect gaps in the field of the historical climatology of the area of polar regions based on early meteorological observations, history, dendroclimatology, paleolimnology, geophysics, geomorphology and other sources.

Conference Topics include:

Special Session on "Arctic Climate Change"
When: 
Wed, 09/02/2015 to Fri, 09/04/2015
Where: 
Manchester, United Kingdom

The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of anywhere else on Earth. Recent monitoring indicates that this is having major impacts on the extent and distribution of ice masses, sea ice, permafrost, and Arctic ecosystems. Environmental change in this sensitive region has implications not only for the Arctic itself, but also for the global climate system. This session explores the current status of climate change in the Arctic and the approaches that are being used to manage these changes for local environments, communities, and industries.

When: 
Mon, 09/07/2015 to Fri, 09/11/2015
Where: 
Vienna, Austria

The Eleventh Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (CHAGS 11) will be taking place in Vienna from September 7-11, 2015. CHAGS 10 - held at Liverpool in June 2013 - has put hunter-gatherer studies back at the centre of scholarly debates and CHAGS 11 will make sure that the momentum is not being lost.

When: 
Thu, 11/05/2015 to Sun, 11/08/2015
Where:
