A major international conference entitled “Our Common Future Under Climate Change” will take place on 7-10 July 2015 in Paris, ahead of the UNFCCC 21st Conference of the Parties.
The science conference will discuss findings from the latest IPCC Fifth Assessment Report and new research since the publication of the report. There will be a strong focus on solutions, as well as considering climate adaptation and mitigation in the broader context of global environmental change.
A call for parallel sessions is now open with a deadline to submit proposals on 30 November 2014. Please see guidelines and template to submit a parallel session here. All submissions should be made on the conference website.
The conference will be structured around four broad themes:

2. Scenarios Exploring Our Common Future
3. Responding to Climate Change Challenges
4. Collective Action and Transformative Solutions
The conference chaired by Professor Chris Field is organised by a broad partnership of French institutions (CIRED, CNRS, IDDRI, INRA, IPSL, IRD) and international institutions (ICSU, UNESCO, Future Earth). It is expected to bring together over 1,000 scientists and other stakeholders.
