The DISCCRS VII Symposium will be held 13-20 October, in Colorado Springs. DISCCRS, the Dissertations Initiative for the Advancement of Climate-Change Research, seeks to catalyze interdisciplinary climate change research among early career scientists.
DISCCRS Symposia are built on the premise that successful interdisciplinary scholarship begins with a core area of expertise and grows with the developmentof broader knowledge and collegial connections across disciplines.
An interdisciplinary committee will select 30 Symposium Scholars based on academic record, commitment to interdisciplinary research, and leadership potential. U.S. residents and international scholars seeking to connect with U.S. researchers are encouraged to apply.Travel and on-site expenses will be covered in most cases. Deadline: 29 February 2012.
