News: Conference has been postponed with new date but same venue!
The 2020 AGMET Conference will be run jointly with the International Symposium on Climate-Resilient Agri-Environmental Systems (ISCRAES) organized by the Climate-Resilient Agri-Environmental Systems (CRAES) group in University College Dublin (UCD) in the Talbot Hotel, Dublin from 3rd to 6th November 2020.
Research under the Agrometeorology theme addresses the challenges of integrating climate and meteorological insights into agricultural management and adaptation to climate change. The session features research on extreme weather events, adaptation to climate change, soil-vegetation-atmosphere transfer (SVAT), weather-related soil processes as well as research that showcases the use of meteorological or climate data for applications in land management and risk assessment (e.g. for disease or insect pest spread).
Research on forecast systems, and other weather-related decision support is also welcome. To develop a place-based understanding of meteorological impacts on farming systems, farmer involvement in the collection of meteorological data could also be discussed as well as the modelling of the spatio-temporal variation in meteorological conditions to fill in sparse weather data (as e.g. done in the MÉRA: climate re-analysis dataset produced by Met Éireann). A well-developed understanding of climate drivers of soil and vegetation processes as well as a good understanding of how an altered climate may affect agriculture is needed for sustainable agricultural and land-based energy systems.
Abstracts can still be submitted for flash talks and posters until 31/07/2020
Abstracts for full papers can also be submitted until 01/07/2020 or until further notice, but please contact the conference organizers about this.
Registration fees paid will be deferred and standard fee can be paid until 31/08/2020.
The Symposiums opening speech will be delivered by Mairead McGuinness, Vice President of the European Parliament. More information about the Agrometeorology theme of the symposium can be found here
