6th OSM Abstract Submission Deadline - 31 January 2022

The 6th PAGES Open Science Meeting (OSM) will take place online from 16-20 May 2022.

This event is a PAGES flagship event held approximately every four years and is a much anticipated fixture on the paleoscience calendar.

The meetings provide an invaluable opportunity to bring the Past Global Change community together from around the world to share, discuss, learn, and plan for the future. They are designed to encourage interaction between scientists from all career levels, disciplines and regions. 

PAGES working group sessions:
i. 2k Network, Session 28: Regional and transregional climate variability over the last 2000 years
ii. ACME, Session 34: Cryosphere change impacts on arctic coastal environments and ecosystems during the Holocene
iii. C-PEAT, Session 37:  Peatland ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services: How paleoscience and management can feed back to each other
iv. CRIAS, Session 22: Historical climate reconstruction and impacts utilizing written records
v. CVAS. Session 13: Climate variability across scales and climate states
vi. Floods, Session 16: Towards an improved understanding of past flood variability and examples on how such data can have a bearing on present and future flood risk management
vii. LandCover6k, Session 21: Deep histories of land-use and land-cover change in African montane regions
viii. PEOPLE3000, Session 40:  Integrating method and theory for global comparisons of human demography and climate change in the Late Holocene
ix. Joint initiative from QUIGS and PALSEA, Session 2: The last interglacial
x. SISAL, Session 3: New developments in speleothem paleoclimate and paleoenvironmental science
xi. VICS, Session 12: Volcanic impacts on climate and society

Endorsed and affiliated sessions:
