Call for Papers

2022 Special Focus - Responding to Climate Change as Emergency: Governing the Climate Emergency

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to share with you the Call for Papers for the Fourteenth International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses, UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, Canada, 7–8 April 2022.

The Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network is brought together by a common concern for the science of, and social responses to, climate change. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.

Reimagining the Scholarly Conference

Our mission is to provide a safe, sustainable, and accessible way for us to come together and interact as a Research Network. We are taking on these challenges by offering a blended conference experience, with session types explicitly designed to make the most of both online and place-based social knowledge processes. We are trying to move away from the either/or of place-based or online conferences. This way we build for our Research Network Members resilient spaces for communication, engagement, and participation.

We are moving to bring conference presentations into the digital era. All presenters, in-person or online, will be given personal Presenter Pages:

  • Linked to your profile page on CGScholar.com 
  • Displaying abstract summary
  • Thematic connection to panelists and peers
  • Ability to add digital media: video, sound, other files

You do not need to commit either to a place-based or virtual presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change. And all content will be displayed online.


Important Dates

We welcome the submission of proposals at any time of the year. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission. Again, you do not need to commit either to a place-based or online presentation at the time of submission. You can present both ways, or change your mode of the presentation if your preferences change.
