3rd Climate Change Technology Conference (May 2013, Montreal Canada)

Dates: 27-29 May 2013
Location: Concordia University, Montreal, Canada
Website: http://www.cctc2013.ca/CallPapers/CallPapers.html
Deadline for submissions of proposals: 15 September 2012

The 3rd Climate Change Technology Conference (CCTC 2013) is a Canadian and international forum for the exchange of ideas for dealing with climate change. It is also an opportunity to keep abreast of emerging techniques and technologies for the mitigation of, and adaptation to, the impacts of climate change. The Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC) and ten of its member societies are organizing CCTC 2013, which will be held on the campus of Concordia University in Montreal.

The very success of our species has led to a situation in which this planet’s finite resources must be considered in all future planning. This conference is dedicated to the study and exposition of the status and prospects of engineering in support of a bright future for humanity in the midst of a rapidly changing and uncertain environment, both physical and sociological due to climate change.

Please see the website for all details.
