Earth System Science PhD Conference

Date: 13 March 2019 - 15 March 2019
Location: Jena, Germany

Earth system and climate scientists focus their research on multiple Earth spheres (ocean, atmosphere, biosphere and soils) and the interactions between them. At the Earth System Science PhD Conference 2019, organized by SENSE members, you can meet with experimentalists and modellers from all spheres to view your very specific or broad and multidisciplinary topic, in a broader context.

To enable this, the conference includes three thematic sessions and one session with workshops that focus on 

  1. understanding natural processes
  2. anthropogenic activities
  3. predictions and vulnerability of the Earth system
  4. research skills & methods.

The conference brings together early-stage and advanced PhD researchers within the broad domain of Earth system sciences. The four main sessions with keynote speakers focus on past, present and future changes (both natural and anthropogenic) in the Earth system, the last session will be hands-on workshops that focus on different data analysis techniques in environmental sciences.

As we specifically welcome early stage researchers, there will be opportunities to present and discuss your initial research ideas, or if you have (preliminary) results, to show these before a broad audience of your peers. The interactive program allows you to talk to other experts, to join one of the hands-on workshops and of course to establish or broaden your scientific network.

ESPC 2019 is the 3rd edition of the PhD conference on Earth system science (PhD-ESS), previously hosted in Jena (2014) and Mainz (2015). The 2019 edition has a new name, logo and website, and is brought to you by 9 PhD students affiliated with the IMPRS-gBGC.
