XII Encontro Rural Report | Nova data: 5 de junho

XII Encontro da Rural RePort: “Ruralidade(s) e Ambiente na Longa Duração”  - Évora, 30 e 31 de Outubro 2024
 
Encontra-se aberta a chamada para submissões (comunicações individuais ou painéis) para o XII Encontro da Rural RePort: “Ruralidade(s) e Ambiente na Longa Duração”, a realizar em Évora nos dias 30 e 31 de Outubro de 2024.
 
Linhas Temáticas do Encontro 
 
1. As questões ligadas à sustentabilidade, à multifuncionalidade e à diversidade do mundo rural, que rompem o horizonte estritamente economicista;
 
2. Os temas relativos ao agroalimentar, que sublinham o papel da agricultura na formação da cadeia de valor naquele setor e fazem a ponte para as questões da procura, do consumo e dos impactos ambientais;
 
3. A dimensão institucional que abre para tópicos relativos aos diretos de propriedade, às políticas agrárias e ao papel das organizações;
 
4. A questão das assimetrias, sejam elas territoriais, sociais, económicas, culturais ou políticas, em quadros de ruralidade e da sua relação com outros contextos;
 
5. A inovação e complexidade no plano metodológico, nomeadamente no que diz respeito ao uso do quantitativo, à relevância dos recursos digitais, ou à busca da interdisciplinaridade.  
 
Novo prazo para submissões: 5 de junho

CFP - 2024 ICAZ Fish Remains Working Group

The 2024 ICAZ Fish Remains Working Group (FRWG) Conference Organizing Committee invites abstract submissions for paper and poster presentations at the upcoming conference in Toronto, Canada (August 12 to 17, 2024). Toronto is located on the shores of Lake Ontario, one of North America’s large freshwater lakes. Fish and fishing were and are central to the livelihoods of Indigenous peoples in the region and were important for the settler economy in the colonization period.

Abstracts are due by May 15, 2024 (midnight Toronto time, or EST)

Call for session: 2024 Annual Meeting of the European Meteorological Society

Rudolf Brázdil, Fidel Gonzáles Rouco, Ricardo García Herrera (convenors)

Call for participation in the session “UP3.4 Paleoclimatology and Historical Climatology“, which will be running during the Annual Meeting of the European Meteorological Society, 2-6 September 2024 in Barcelona, Spain (https://ems2024.eu/). We believe it is a good possibility to meet in our paleoclimatological and historical-climatological community and present new scientific results achieved. Description of our session is as follows:

„The exceptional amplitude and rate of warming recorded at global, hemispherical and regional scales within contemporary instrumental records should be placed in the context of longer-term multi-centennial and millennial climate variability in order to both assess its uniqueness and better understand the mechanisms that contribute to the background of natural climate variability. Systematic meteorological measurements only span over a relatively short time interval. Thus, documentary evidence and natural climate proxies are used for the reconstruction and understanding of longer term past climate variability.

This session welcomes presentations related to various topics related to this frame:

  • early instrumental meteorological measurements, their history and use for the long-term series
  • documentary evidence and its features (advantages, disadvantages limits)
  • natural climate proxies and its features (advantages, disadvantages, limits)
  • methodological improvements and analysis of climate reconstruction approaches both from documentary evidence and natural climatic proxies
  • results of climate reconstructions over different regions based on various climatic sources
  • hydrological and meteorological extremes (e.g. floods, hurricanes, windstorms, tornadoes, hailstorms, frosts) and their human impacts in relation to climate variability beyond the instrumental period.
  • climate modelling of the last 2K and comparison of model outputs with reconstructed/observed climatological data
  • past impacts of climate variability on natural processes and human society
  • past and recent perception of the climate and its variability
  • history of meteorology and meteorological and climatological knowledge
  • discussion of natural and anthropogenic forcings as well as recent warming at global, regional and local scales in a long-term context.“

Important organisation information concerning of the EMS Barcelona meeting is included on https://ems2024.eu/. We remind you that deadline for abstract submission is 18 April 2024. – see https://www.ems2024.eu/abstract_management/how_to_submit_an_abstract.html.

We would be really very pleased to have abstract submission to our session from you and particularly to meet you personally in Barcelona. Please contact us if any additional information will be needed.
