NEWS: Updated programme and panel slots/times

Check for updates to the programme at the Venue and conference programme page. The schedule of panels with times of sessions is now visible. The line-up of papers will be downloadbale via the printable book of abstracts next week.

We are happy to announce that a number of travel bursaries will be available to PhD students and junior scholars. Information and application link will be accessible at the end of April.

NEWS: Requests for extension of Early Bird registration and funding.

Following a high number of requests by presenting participants to extend the Early Bird registration fee for a week, the Scientific Committee has decided to reopen it. We have already had over 100 registrations. Keep doing that! The Early Bird will be available also to attendees who do not present (especially junior scholars required this and should take advantage of the low rate). Early Bird registration will then close irrevocably on Sunday 14 April at 23:59, after which time, only the regular fee will be available.

By the end of April we will be able to inform delegates about availability and/or extent of funding for travel support. Spread the word, come and join forces in Uppsala this summer. It will be awsome.

Deadline extended one extra week to 23:59 GMT+1 on 7 March.

Following requests from colleagues in different time zones and those who discovered the CfP too close to original submission, we are extending the CfP for one extra week, until 7 March at 23:59 GMT+1. Note, that some panels are completely full and will not accept further proposals. Other panels can accept 1 to 3 papers to fill a session.

Keynote presentations

The abstracts of keynote speakers’ presentations are available and they look stunning. In the diversity of perspectives, they engage the Nature, Society and Scale theme as well as collaboration across disciplines in ways that surely will spark interesting discussions during the conference. Concisely, they address the role of affect in policy and climate change (Manderson), the challenges of carrying out interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research in disaster health (Horwell), emergencies and disasters as key to understanding wider social phenomena and political logics (Nguyen), and human activities and changes in compound extremes (AghaKouchak).
