Description:

SISC was created to serve as a meeting point for scientists
from different disciplines, who use climate information for
their research: from climatologists to physicists and
chemists, geographers to agronomists, economists to
political scientists, and all scholars that deal with
climate-related sciences and their applications.
The Italian Society for the Climate Sciences aims at
contributing to scientific progress and innovation of
climatic sciences in Italy by promoting the convergence of
disciplines and multidisciplinary research.

Below the call for papers for the *FIRST ANNUAL CONFERENCE
OF THE ITALIAN SOCIETY FOR CLIMATE SCIENCES* (Lecce,
September 23-24, 2013). Please, consider the opportunity to
participate to the event and to circulate the call for
papers among the scientific community.

CALL FOR PAPER
In January 2013, the Italian Society for Climate Sciences
(SISC) <http://www.sisclima.it/> was established and we are
especially pleased to announce the First Annual SISC Conference.

The conference, entitled "/Climate change and its
implications on ecosystem services and society/" aims to
involve scientists, researchers, policy makers, Italians,
and foreigners working in close contact with our country,
whose activities closely affect aspects of climate change
and their relationships on environmental and socio-economic
systems.

*The main objectives of the Conference:*
Create and promote an interdisciplinary platform for
discussion of climate systems and its interactions with
environment and society;
Promote a constructive and transdisciplinary dialogue
between scientists, decision makers, operational service
providers and general public;
Explore and model
physical-chemical-biological-societal-economic responses
through advanced technical capabilities;
Foster scientific exchange on sustainable growth, adaptation
and mitigation policies.

*THEMES
**Advances in Climate Science*
Theories, observations, and models of the dynamics of
atmospheric and oceanic fluids: climate change, rapid
environmental changes, forecasts and projections, mesoscale
processes and extreme events.

*Implications on ecosystem services*
Analysis, projections, models and evaluation of climate
change impact and extremes on natural ecosystems and
agriculture.
Changes in land-use and land-cover, also due to extreme
hydrological and hydrogeological events.
Adaptation and mitigation strategies for hydrological and
hydrogeological risks.
Adaptation and mitigation strategies for the management of
water resources.
_
_*Climate policy and economic assessments*
Translate the interactions between climate and the processes
concerning ecosystems into economic values.
Plan and evaluate strategies for adaptation and mitigation
policies.
Assess the impacts of climate extremes and climate change on
public health.
Climate change and urbanization: implications, feedback and
evaluation of strategies and of public choices.
Implications of climate change on cultural heritage
preservation, analysis and assessment of the vulnerability
of cultural heritage related to climate change and potential
strategies for adaptation and mitigation.
