The 3rd Climate Reconstruction and Impacts from Archives of Societies (CRIAS) workshop, titled "State of the Art of Historical Climatology in International Perspective", will be held from 19-20 March 2021 in Hong Kong.

This workshop was originally scheduled to take place 25-26 September 2020.

Online participation

CRIAS are working on the workshop also being available by remote participation. Please feel free to let organizers know your preference to attend the workshop either in person or online. The abstract submissions guidelines for physical and remote participation are the same (see below).

Organizers are doing their best to provide an inspiring workshop for everyone, either if you are traveling to Hong Kong or attending the meeting from home, in March 2021.

Venue

Department of Social Sciences, Education University of Hong Kong.

Description

This workshop will focus on advancing methods and international cooperation in the reconstruction of past climates using written sources, focusing on global comparisons of methods and results in historical climatology. Participants from different regions in the world will share their latest findings and achievements by using social archives to reconstruct past climate change.

The two-day workshop consists of different sessions. In each we will hear three to four presentations, which will be followed by a discussion. The workshop language is English. Presenters of accepted papers are asked to speak for 15-20 minutes.

Organizers invite contributions from all fields dealing with:
- methodological approaches of climate reconstructions based on documentary data;
- interregional comparisons of methods in historical climatology based on social archives;
- interdisciplinary approaches combining historical climatology and other disciplines of climatology.

Abstract submissions/Call for papers

Organizers welcome any papers that advance the methods or expand the geographical and chronological scope of historical climatology.

Abstracts must include:
- title of the proposed paper;
- an abstract of not more than 300 words, including max five key words;
- contact information (affiliation, e-mail, telephone and postal address)

To apply, please submit an abstract (300 words) by 31 July 2020 to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Financial support

PAGES has provided some financial support for the attendance of early-career researchers and researchers from less-favored countries. Details on how to apply for financial support will be provided as soon as possible.

Expected outcome of the workshop

The accepted participants in the coming workshop will still be invited to contribute to a special issue under the journal Climate of the Past, titled "International Methods and Comparisons in Climate Reconstruction and Impacts from Archives of Societies".

The submissions date for the special issue is April 2021, so the workshop will provide a forum to discuss results and to finalize contributions.
