The meetings facilitate communication between the science and statistics communities and promote good statistical practice in climate and atmospheric science. The local organizer of the 13th meeting is Dr. Francis Zwiers (https://www.pacificclimate.org/about-pcic/people/francis-zwiers) This meeting is sponsored by the Pacific Climate Impact Consortium (https://www.pacificclimate.org/about-pcic/people/francis-zwiers)  and the World Climate Research Program.

A number of named sessions (http://13imsc.pacificclimate.org/sessions.html ) are planned, including: climate data homogenization and climate trends/variability assessment, the Detection and Attribution Model Intercomparison Project (DAMIP) and relevant applications, The WCRP Grand Challenge on extremes, the attribution of extreme weather events and their impacts to external drivers of climate change, understanding climate variability and its teleconnections under global warming, extreme value theory and its applications, nonlinear methods in statistical climatology, statistical approaches for weather and climate model validation and evaluation, advanced methods for evaluating weather and climate extremes in climate model simulations, statistical downscaling of climate model simulations, and the stochastic analysis of the hydrologic cycle. Contributions are invited in all aspects of the application of statistical methods in climate research and the development of new statistical methods and theories relevant to climate applications, and in particular those related to the topics of the above named sessions.

The deadline for submitting an abstract (http://13imsc.pacificclimate.org/registration.html)  is Feb. 29, 2016.

Society for Socialist Studies

The theme of the 2015 CFHSS Congress is ‘Energizing Communities.’ The theme of the 2016 Society for Socialist Studies Conference is ‘Energizing Class Struggles: Race, Gender and Coloniality.’  Join us for four days of wide-ranging and engaged analysis and dialogue. May 31-June 3, at the University of Calgary, which is located on Treaty 7 territory.

 

We wish to ‘energize class struggles’, understanding that the class relationship in contemporary capitalism is mediated by forms of oppression related to gender, race, able-bodiedness and orientation, and is articulated with the ongoing colonization of Indigenous peoples across lands and waters claimed by Canada. We consider ‘energizing class struggles’ as a possibility – the potential for revitalized struggles by and for equity-seeking groups, subaltern classes and among diverse Indigenous peoples against an unjust colonial-capitalist world system. At the same time, energetic class struggles are a variable historical reality across the whole of society, in areas ranging from the arts to literary studies to everyday economics in the home, the workplace and the community. In short, the working classes have never merely accepted their domination but have always fought battles against the power of capital in very unequal conditions. The University, too, is a site of sometimes-energetic, sometimes-waning class struggle: on the one hand, the University’s institutions and relationships reflect the relative dominance of the capitalist class in radically unequal times, including the power of resource extraction industries to shape university institutions and aims. On the other hand, the working classes, women (and women-identified) and subaltern groups have sought to challenge the expression of capitalist power in academia and society more broadly. At least since the 1970s, diverse Indigenous peoples have likewise sought simultaneously to ‘decolonize’ and ‘indigenize’ university spaces as part of broader struggles of Indigenous self-determination and liberation. This year, the Society invites participants to critically reflect upon the histories of vital class struggles. We call upon contributors to think through the possibilities for re-energizing class and Indigenous struggles in an historical moment of unprecedented capitalist class power.

We encourage readers to sign up for notification of papers posted for this conference. If you are interested in submitting to this conference we recommend that you review the About the Conference page for the conference's policies, and visit the Conference Homepage for more information.
