Apply for the Gordon Research Seminar for Climate Engineering

The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) for Climate Engineering will be held February 17-18, 2024 at Renaissance Tuscany Il Ciocco in Lucca, Italy. The Gordon Research Seminar is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The 2024 GRS for Climate Engineering is focused on the processes, uncertainties, responses, and impacts of solar radiation management approaches. Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated Gordon Research Conference (GRC). The program for the GRS will consist of an introductory Keynote session, two poster sessions, and three oral sessions with ample time for discussion.  Dr. Ines Camilloni from the University of Buenos Aires will be Keynote Speaker.


The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) for Climate Engineering (February 18-23, 2024) will immediately follow the GRS and attendance at both is strongly encouraged. Please note there is a separate application for the GRC, and more information can be found using the link above.


The meetings will focus on a variety of potential climate engineering methods, including but not limited to: 

  • stratospheric aerosol injection, 
  • marine cloud brightening, 
  • surface albedo modification,
  • space-based sun shades, and 
  • cirrus cloud thinning


The GRS welcomes abstracts spanning processes, impacts, methodologies, and disciplines that address the scientific and engineering aspects of climate intervention. For more information regarding the topics to be discussed at the meeting, you can explore the GRC program description here: Prospective GRS participants may request to present a poster, and/or be considered for an oral presentation. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!


Submit an abstract by November 12, 2023 to be considered for an oral presentation.

A detailed program will be posted by November 17, 2023.

Applications for the meeting will be accepted until January 20, 2024.

Registration can be completed (and fees paid) up to 3 weeks before the meeting.
