Plenary talks

Plenary talks will provide broad overviews over a research area and stimulate discussions on future directions of PAGES science. Plenary talks are 25 minutes long followed by 5 minutes of questions.

Confirmed speakers

Nerilie Abram, Australian National University, Australia
Juan Luis Arsuaga, Spain
Ed Brook, Oregon State University, USA
Isabel Cacho Lascorz, University of Barcelona, Spain
Julien Emile-Geay, University of Southern California, USA
Penélope González Sampériz, Instituto Pirenaico de Ecología, Zaragoza, Spain
Gabi Hegerl, University of Edinburgh, UK
Eric Wolff, University of Cambridge, UK

Parallel sessions

Parallel sessions will highlight latest research results on specific PAGES-relevant themes. Each session will usually have one oral block and a poster block. Each block is of 2 hours duration and consists of eight 15-minute talks.
