*First Annual Conference*
/Climate change and its implications on ecosystem services and society/
*23-24 September 2013 -- Castello Carlo V, Lecce - Italy*
Deadline: May 6, 2013

Dear Colleagues,
In January 2013, the Italian Society for Climate Sciences (SISC) was
established and we are especially pleased to announce the First Annual
SISC Conference.

The conference, entitled "/Climate change and its implications on
ecosystem services and society/" aims to involve scientists,
researchers, policy makers, Italians and foreigners working in close
contact with our country, whose activities closely affect aspects of
climate change and their relationships on environmental and
socio-economic systems.

*The main objectives of the Conference:*
Create and promote an interdisciplinary platform for discussion of
climate systems and its interactions with environment and society;
Promote ai constructive and transdisciplinary dialogue between
scientists, decision makers, operational service providers and general
public;
Explore and model physical-chemical-biological-societal-economic
responses through advanced technical capabilities;
Foster scientific exchange on sustainable growth, adaptation and
mitigation policies.

*THEMES
**Advances in Climate Science*
Theories, observations, and models of the dynamics of atmospheric and
oceanic fluids: climate change, rapid environmental changes, forecasts
and projections, mesoscale processes and extreme events.

*Implications on ecosystem services*
Analysis, projections, models and evaluation of climate change impact
and extremes on natural ecosystems and agriculture.
Changes in land-use and land-cover, also due to extreme hydrological and
hydrogeological events.
Adaptation and mitigation strategies for hydrological and
hydrogeological risks.
Adaptation and mitigation strategies for the management of water resources.

*Climate policy and economic assessments*
Translate the interactions between climate and the processes concerning
ecosystems into economic values.
Plan and evaluate strategies for adaptation and mitigation policies.
Assess the impacts of climate extremes and climate change on public health.
Climate change and urbanization: implications, feedback and evaluation
of strategies and of public choices.
Implications of climate change on cultural heritage preservation,
analysis and assessment of the vulnerability of cultural heritage
