The German Chapter of the Young Earth Scientists Network (YES) is pleased to announce the 5th International YES Congress 2019 to be held at the Freie Universität in Berlin, Germany from 9 - 13 September 2019. The congress will have the theme “Rocking Earth’s Future”.
The Call for Sessions is now open until 15 October 2018.
The current and future grand challenges of global change are manifold and include rapid population growth, increasing urbanization, global warming, contamination of water and soil, the continuing transition of our economy to post-industrialism and related increases in vulnerabilities. For early career Earth Science researchers the task is to ensure that humanity is prepared to tackle all these challenges in a smart and sustainable way. This requires hard facts, reproducible and transparent science and a sound commitment.
The 5th YES Congress 2019 will be centered around six large topical areas:
- Ashes to Ashes - Understanding Earth Processes
- Unboxing Earth - Interdisciplinary Problem Solving
- Heritage Earth - Sustainable Resource Management
- Society at Risk - Impacting Earth Phenomena
- Brave New World - Advanced Technologies in Earth Sciences
- Beyond Printing - Communicating Science
We are now inviting session proposals that fit within the above themes. Session formats can be anything from traditional oral presentations and poster presentations, to roundtable discussions, panel discussions, interactive Q&A sessions, open discussion rounds, science slams, barcamps, PICO, field trips, elevator pitches or others. Be creative!
The lead convener in each session proposal has to be an early career scientist!
