Abstract submission

We invite abstracts for poster and oral presentations within our three central themes, including, but not restricted to, the highlighted areas below. Please indicate which theme you would like to contribute to during submission. The abstract submission deadline is 30 April 2018.

Note that to allow for discussion, the number of oral presentations is limited. Poster presenters will be asked to give 2-minute flash-talks, to ensure that everyone’s research received appropriate exposure.


Theme 1: Integrating records of climate and environment over the last glacial to interglacial cycle

  • Exploring methodologies for the integration of palaeoenvironmental records, e.g. by using independent chronologies, marker horizons or time-transfer function techniques
  • New findings from connected ice-core, marine and / or terrestrial environmental records
  • Considering chronological uncertainties in the inter-comparison of records
  • Studies of leads, lags and synchronous change on local to global scales
  • Integration of complex terrestrial archives into regional compilations

Theme 2: Resolving proxy signals of climate change and environmental response

  • Spatial and temporal variability in proxy-signals at abrupt transitions
  • Quantification of palaeoclimate proxies
  • Modelling proxy signals and uncertainties
  • Toward annual-decadal scale resolution of environmental change
  • New tools and techniques in palaeoenvironmental reconstruction

Theme 3: Diagnosing global climate mechanisms of abrupt change

  • Integrating modelling approaches to test climate mechanisms
  • Scaling up from local processes to global teleconnections
  • Learning from data – model comparisons
  • Drivers and responders at past abrupt climates changes (e.g. D/O events, H-events, LGIT)

Abstract formatting

Your abstract body should have 100–500 words and be formatted as indicated in the WORD template. Do not include figures. References will be included within the total word count.

Abstracts should be carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last minute changes. Indicate, by underlining their name, which author will present the work.

Authors may submit a maximum of one first author / presenting author oral presentation and one first author / presenting author poster presentation. Co-authorships are not limited. The final programme will be decided by the Programme Committee and authors will be notified by 11 May 2018 as to whether their submission is accepted. Decisions on poster or oral presentation allocation will be confirmed after 27 June registration deadline.

The official language of the conference is English. Simultaneous interpretation is not provided. It is therefore expected that authors are able to present their research more or less fluently in the English language.

The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the meeting by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors.
