2013 Climate Leadership Conference
February 27 - March 1, 2013 Washington, DC
2013 Climate Leadership Conference
February 27 - March 1, 2013, Washington, DC
The 2013 Climate Leadership Conference is an annual exchange for addressing global climate change through policy, innovation and business solutions. Best practices for integrating strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change will be discussed by leaders from business, government, academia and the non-profit communities.
The Ecological Society of America is a supporting partner organization. ESA members receive a 20 percent registration discount. Enter discount code: ESA-Members-2013

The 3rd Conference on Invasion Biology, Ecology, and Management
April 2-4, 2013 University of Kentucky campus.
The 3rd Conference on Invasion Biology, Ecology, and Management, with a theme of “Where we were, Where we are, and Where we should be,” will feature a series of plenary speakers and submitted papers addressing invasive organisms at all levels (plants, animals, insects, pathogens) and from a variety of perspectives. Research, technical and non-technical concurrent sessions and forums on a wide array of topics pertaining to invasions and invasiveness will be offered, including detection, mapping, and monitoring, biology and ecology, community and ecosystem effects, and mitigation and management. The meeting will conclude with an evening forum, “Some Conservative Viewpoints on Climate Change.”
April 2-4, 2013 on the University of Kentucky campus.
This 2013 Environmental Issues Event is organized by the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture Environmental and Natural Resources Initiative. Contact Dr. Lynne Rieske-Kinney, 859.257.1167, Lrieske@uky.edu

10th: Combining experimental and theoretical approaches to understand biogeochemical interfaces in soil at the Goldschmidt Conference
25-30 August, 2013 Florence, Italy
The aim of this session is to raise an interdisciplinary dialogue between experimentalists working with various intrumental and microscopic techniques, and modellers using different theoretical computational approaches, to gain fundamental insights into properties and functions of biogeochemical interfaces in soil (BGIs) in soils.
Together we would like to discuss how the combined application of these two complementary scientific fields can be used to mechanistically understand BGIs in soils and their functions.
If you would be interested in participating in our session, we kindly ask you to submit your abstracts no later than April 12, 2013 (abstract submission, as well as on-line registration, starts in February 1, 2013).

21st EUROPEAN BIOMASS CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION
03-07 June 2013 Bella Center - Copenhagen, Denmark
What will be the key innovations to be reported in 2013?
"Efficiency of conversion from biomass to bioenergy, biofuel or bio-product is of utmost importance in achieving both the greatest possible greenhouse gas savings and the best economic performance of a process. Consequently, a number of questions arise. What in fact is the best way to use biomass to minimise greenhouse gas emissions? How can we best plan and design bioenergy processes to effectively fit into developing power grids that are increasingly fed with variable supplies from wind and solar? How do we make best use of our agricultural resources in Europe and globally and still ensure the sustainable use of our resources? Can we expand our use of forests as a source of biomass? Will certification schemes provide adequate auditing tools for monitoring compliance with sustainability rules?"
These are some of the questions we need to address. These topics and more will form the basis of the plenaries, orals and posters.
Take a look at the list of subjects which will be discussed at the EU BC&E 2013.
1. BIOMASS RESOURCES
2. R&D ON BIOMASS CONVERSION TECHNOLOGIES FOR HEATING, ELECTRICITY AND CHEMICALS
3. R&D ON PROCESSES FOR SOLID, LIQUID AND GASEOUS FUELS FROM BIOMASS
4. INDUSTRIAL DEMONSTRATION AND BUSINESS CONCEPTS
5. BIOMASS POLICIES, MARKETS AND SUSTAINABILITY
The Conference is designed to provide a platform for knowledge exchange on the latest scientific results, developments in policies and deployment of this global energy technology. For this purpose the programme will be structured to satisfy the needs of both, the wider audience and the scientific specialists. The programme will offer overviews of the latest scientific findings, industrial progress and political landscape through key-note and plenary presentations. It will also provide specialised thematic sessions were details are presented in a more focused and technical manner. To guarantee the scientific quality of the programme, each abstract is scored by independent reviewers before the topic organisers - two for each subject - select the oral and visual presentations.
