Cambridge Centre for Climate Science


The First CCfCS student symposium.

The Cambridge Centre for Climate Science would like to welcome you to the first student symposium, held at the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI) on the 8th May 2015.  This conference aims to bring together the broad scientific research from students within the six University of Cambridge departments, SPRI and the British Antarctic Survey. The one day event will consist of oral presentations and posters, with lunch and refreshments provided. We also welcome Dr Emily Shuckburgh from BAS, who will be our guest speaker for the day. Whilst the main theme of the conference is ‘Climate Research’, the day will be split into sessions on past, present and future climate. The programme will include research on (but not be limited to) climate change, meteorology, ecosystem adaptation, climate modelling, global teleconnections, reconstructing past climates, ice shelf interactions, ocean-atmosphere links, boundary layer and turbulence, evolution in a changing climate, observations and data assimilation, cloud properties, human-climate interactions and much more. Abstracts will be taken from any masters or PhD level student, with a climate-related research project.

As this conference is specifically for students to promote their research, it is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in communicating your science. This will be a great environment to practice your oral presentations and prepare you for larger conferences. The day will end with a wine reception which provides ample time to mingle with your fellow students, and refine those networking skills. This event (and refreshments/lunch) is free for registered students, and will be held at the Scott Polar Research Institute on the 8th May 2015.

To help spread the word please feel free to pin up this poster within your departments.
