Call for Abstracts for the 5th Annual IACPES Symposium on Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics

Monday, June 13, 2016 (start at 8:30 am)
106 Life Science Bldg.
York University, Toronto, Ontario

Cost: Free! Registration is required
Included: Breaks and lunches, schedule with book of abstracts

The main focus of this year’s IACPES Symposium is “Atmospheric Science Policy”. An important skill often lacking in scientists is the ability to distil scientific information and to communicate it to non-scientific decision makers. A professional development policy component was incorporated into the training of all the NSERC CREATE IACPES trainees. This was to encourage the students to think beyond the science, to expose them to a network of government policy contacts, and to provide future opportunities to those students who might find a niche in the science/policy/management arena, an area that is desperately in need of scientifically trained individuals with proper communication skills. Each student chose a policy topic related to their research or some other atmospheric theme with the intention of writing a paper/manuscript and present the results to a suitable audience. Government scientist are invited to participate at this forum.

Please register in advance. If possible submit the title for your talk by Monday, May 16th.  The deadline for abstracts is Monday, May 30th. Please send an abstract asap.
