The goal of the Graduate Climate Conference (GCC) is to provide a discussion forum for graduate students undertaking research on climate and climate change in an array of disciplines throughout the physical sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, and humanities. The format is designed to encourage new climate researchers to become acquainted with the details of diverse areas of study and to place their own work in the broader context of the climate research community.
Historically, the responsibility for organizing the GCC has rotated between grad students from MIT and the University of Washington. This year’s conference will be a joint venture between students from the MIT Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and the Harvard University Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.
Applications are now open. The deadline for abstract submission is June 15th. Food, lodging, and conference registration fees are provided by our generous sponsors; travel grants will be provided on an as-needed basis to as many participants as possible.
