Dates: 15-18 December 2014
Location: San Francisco, USA
Website: Abstracts submission website
Deadline for submissions on abstracts: 6 August 2014

NOTE: Although targeted primarily at scientists, I am posting this CFP because it relates to policy and organizational design, decision-making, and other areas of interest to designers and design researchers.

The Union of Concerned Scientists is seeking abstracts for three symposia at this year’s American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting from December 15-18 in San Francisco. I hope that you and other members of the UCS Science Network will consider submitting an abstract.

If you are attending or interested in attending AGU this December, please review the sessions below. All abstract submissions are due by August 6.
