Welcome to IBS Conference on Climate Change and Human Migration

We are pleased to announce the 2017 International conference on
IBS Conference on Climate Change and Human Migration
to be held at the Paradise Hotel in Busan, South Korea from November 27th – December 1st

The main goal of this conference will be to discuss aspects of climate-induced human migration and to determine how  climate predictions can help assess and mitigate impacts of climate-driven human displacement.

During the first two days of the conference (November 27th – 28th) world-renowned experts will give keynote presentations on:

  • Climate Change, Anthropology, and Human Migration

  • Climate and Food Security

  • Climate and Civilization

  • Climate Justice

  • Drought and Water Management

  • Sea Level Rise and Relocation

  • Climate Forecasts and Humanitarian Crisis Management

The last three days (November 29th – December 1st) are dedicated to in-depth presentations on these key topics.

The conference is organized by the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), the IBS Center for Climate Physics, the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, Seoul, the APEC Climate Center, and Pusan National University.

Project supported from Busan Metropolitan City to expand science and technology culture (과학기술문화 확산 부산광역시 지원 사업)

About ICCP

The IBS Center for Climate Physics (ICCP) was established in January, 2017 as the first Earth Science center within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS). ICCP seeks to expand the frontiers of earth system science by studying the dynamical processes of our climate system and its response to external forcings. The goal of the ICCP is to improve decadal earth system forecasts and longterm climate projections and to disseminate this information to the general public.

Axel Timmermann, Distinguished Professor at Pusan National University was appointed Director of the IBS Center for Climate Physics in January 2017. Prior to his move to Korea, he was a tenured Full Professor for Physical Oceanography at the University of Hawaii. Dr Timmermann has been awarded the Rosenstiel Award of the Rosenstiel School for Marine and Atmospheric Science and the Milankovic Medal of the European Geosciences Union. He was also lead author of the 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Prof. Timmermann has made significant contributions to a broad range of research topics ranging from past to future climate change, marine biogeochemistry, sea level rise and early human migration.
