2020 NACP Open Science Meeting
The overall theme of the 2020 NACP Open Science meeting is “The Future is Here: North American carbon cycle science for a changed climate”, and the meeting will be organized around highly interdisciplinary science sessions including stakeholder engagement, carbon-climate feedbacks, new instrumentation and the carbon cycle modeling these advances enable, carbon and the economy, and spatial and temporal hotspots for natural carbon cycling. Keynote panels at the conference will cover a number of special topics at the interface between carbon science, social science, and carbon management policies. These include providing usable climate and carbon information, alternative carbon futures, policies and practices at the municipal level to mitigate carbon and address climate challenges, and youth and student perspectives on carbon-climate science needs.
When: March 23–26, 2020
Where: Hilton McLean Tysons Corner,
All sessions will have competed talks and posters. Talks are expected to be synthetic across multiple projects/applications. Participants wishing to report on individual research results are instructed to submit their abstract to the poster portion of the session.
- Talk abstracts are due January 13, 2020.
- Poster abstracts are due February 19, 2020.
This year, for the first time, we will be organizing an Outstanding Student Presentation Competition. Students are encouraged to submit their posters for consideration, which will also include a “speed talk” presentation beforehand. If you are not a student, please consider volunteering to be a judge for student presentations.
We will soon be announcing the Keynote and Breakout Sessions, so keep an eye out for further notices!
