Final Programme

Climate Change caused by global warming represents one of the greatest challenges of the 21st Century, necessitating the engagement of all sections of society, local and global. This conference will address the climate variability at different time and spatial scales by taking into account the coupling between the atmosphere-hydrosphere-biosphere-cryosphere and geosphere. Beyond the comprehensive analysis of climate variability and its causes, the conference will address the predicted effects of climate change on ecosystems, agriculture, human health and infrastructure. This ESF-JSPS Frontier Science Meeting for Young Researchers will bring together leading researchers and young scientists from Europe and Japan to review recent progress and future prospects in their areas of expertise. An interactive session among participants will give the opportunity to discuss future trends and needs in climate research. Poster sessions are planned, with posters on display for the whole duration of the conference.
