CIMR -- Climate Information for Managing Risks
Partnerships and Solutions for Agriculture and Natural Resources
June 10-13, 2008
St. Pete Beach, Florida
Website: www.conference.ifas.ufl.edu/CIMR<http://www.conference.ifas.ufl.edu/CIMR>

CIMR is an international symposium that will provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge, experiences, and ideas among diverse participants from universities, agriculture and natural resource managers, and other decision makers that might use climate information.  Participants in CIMR will help to identify priorities and plan strategies for climate research, education, and outreach that are needed to assure that decision makers have relevant and valuable climate information.  An important element of the CIMR Symposium will be to explore opportunities and needs for applying global climate information at the local and regional levels, with local and regional examples coming from throughout the nation and world.

CONTENTS
1.            Abstract submission deadline extended
2.            Tentative list of speakers
3.            Other CIMR information

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: EXTENDED TO MARCH 1, 2008: http://www.conference.ifas.ufl.edu/CIMR/

The program will consist of invited speakers, as well as poster presentations selected from abstract submissions. Poster presentations will provide a valuable format for dialogue outside the structured plenary and facilitated breakout discussion sessions, and thus will be a significant component of this symposium. You are invited to submit abstracts on all topics relevant to climate information for managing risks to agriculture and natural resources. Topics for abstract submission include but are not limited to the following:



*         State of knowledge on climate variability and climate change at seasonal, decadal, and multi-decadal time scales



*         Impacts of climate variability and climate change on agriculture and natural resources



*         Stakeholder needs for climate information related to agriculture and natural resources



*         Success stories: Integrated approaches that combine research, extension, and education in the application of climate information



*         Extension and application of climate information for agriculture and natural resources



*         Short- and long-term needs and opportunities for education to ensure the effective use of climate information by decision makers



*         Other - allows you to indicate another category if your work does not fit in one of the above topics



Posters will be displayed during a formal poster session and reception with authors available for discussion. Abstracts submitted will also be published in the electronic book of abstracts on CD-ROM. Student poster authors will be eligible to compete for "Best Poster" awards based on the quality of the abstract, poster, and discussion. Poster presenter winners will be announced during the closing session on Friday morning.



Submit an abstract via the symposium website BY MARCH 1, 2008:  http://www.conference.ifas.ufl.edu/CIMR/
