The 2010 International Climate Change Adaptation Conference “Climate Adaptation Futures: Preparing for the unavoidable impacts of climate change” call for abstracts deadline is Monday, January 18, 2009. The conference will be taking place June 29 – July 1, 2010 at the Gold Coast Convention Centre, in Australia’s beautiful Gold Coast in the state of Queensland.

From the 2010 flyer:

This conference will be one of the first international forums to focus solely on climate impacts and adaptation. It will bring together scientists and decision makers from developed and developing countries to share research approaches, methods and results. It will explore the way forward in a world where impacts are increasingly observable and adaptation actions are increasingly required.

Keynote speakers include:

Professor Chris Field (Carnegie Institution for Science)
Dr Mark Howden (CSIRO Climate Adaptation Flagship)
Dr R.K. Pachauri (Chair, IPCC)
Professor Stephen Schneider (Stanford University)
