An Early Career Researchers (ECR) Symposium and WCRP/SPARC workshop on “WCRP Grand Challenges and Regional Climate Change” will be held in Incheon, Republic of Korea, from 18-20 October 2017.

ECR Symposium

A half-day symposium for early career researchers (ECRs) is organised as a part of the SPARC local workshop. This symposium consists of a series of invited lectures from distinguished scientists as well as poster presentations from ECR on broad issues of SPARC-related science and regional climate change. ECR from Asian and Oceanian countries are encouraged to join the symposium to extend their research horizons through active discussion with leading international scientists.

WCRP/SPARC Workshop on “WCRP Grand Challenges and Regional Climate Change”

SPARC (Stratosphere-troposphere Processes And their Role in Climate) is a core project of the WCRP (World Climate Research Program), coordinating international efforts to bring knowledge of the stratosphere-troposphere system to bear on relevant issues in climate variability and prediction.

This SPARC-sponsored workshop aims to:

  1. Identify the SPARC-related research topics of relevance to Asia,
  2. Bring international and Asian scientists together for active interactions and collaborations, and
  3. Promote capacity development in Asia.
