Sept 9-10, 2014

Seattle, WA

The PNW Climate Science Conference brings together more than 250 researchers and practitioners from around the region to discuss scientific results, challenges, and solutions related to climate impacts on people, natural resources, and infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest. It is the region's premier opportunity for a cross-disciplinary exchange of knowledge and ideas about regional climate, climate impacts, and climate adaptation science and practice. Conference participants include policy- and decision-makers, resource managers, and scientists from academia, public agencies, sovereign tribal nations, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.

The conference format will include invited speakers, plenary sessions of broad interest, and more targeted concurrent sessions. A poster session/hosted reception is also planned at the end of the first day. Anticipated concurrent sessions include Pacific Northwest hydrology and water resources; terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems; the built environment; human health; agriculture; and shorelines, oceans, and coasts. Presentations and posters within each session will span a range of topics from science to vulnerability assessment and implementation of adaptation actions. A draft conference agenda will be available in mid-July.

Registration details are available here: A limited number of student and tribal registration scholarships are available upon request. See the registration page for more information.

Please contact Lara Whitely Binder ( with any questions about the conference.
