The Convention Centre, Palmerston North, New Zealand is the venue for this two day conference (4-5 June 2013) where renowned researchers from across New Zealand will gather to showcase the latest climate change research thinking and outputs.

NZCC Conference 2013 Climate change research underpins or touches on many aspects of society. The invited plenary speakers and the research papers we expect to be presented at this conference will provide an excellent overview of New Zealand knowledge. The conference will also provide a platform for discussion of knowledge gaps and of needs for further work, and will be an opportunity for building new relationships between researchers, across organisations, and with end-users.

The conference theme and sub-themes will provide the opportunity to consider challenges the research and end users communities face when dealing with climate change. The New Zealand Climate Change Centre (NZCCC) and the conference committee invites interested attendees to submit an abstract for a presentation or poster on recently completed or in-train research under the following four themes:

Themes:

-The Physical Science
-Impacts Adaptation & Vulnerability
-Mitigation
-Integration & Cross-cutting Issues
-Provide a platform for researchers from across New Zealand and overseas to present climate change-related research
-Raise awareness of recently completed, current and future work programmes
-Explore and encourage research that is conducted across multiple disciplines
-Improve collegial relationships in a formal and informal conference setting
-Identify ‘who does what’ in New Zealand’s climate change community
-Encourage student participation and increase their exposure to professional New Zealand-based colleagues and organisations
-Help consider gaps in New Zealand’s climate change research and explore future opportunities for New Zealand’s climate change researchers.
