Call for papers:


Climate, Migration & Health in Latin America: Connections through Urbanization

Boulder, Colorado, 26-27 May 2016


Deadline for submission: 12 February 2016


With support from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, the Institute of Behavioral Science and University of Colorado Population Center are hosting the 2nd annual workshop on Climate, Migration and Health. This year's sub-theme is "Connections through Urbanization" with a geographic focus on Latin America.

The two-day workshop, held in Boulder, Colorado, will bring together approximately 10 researchers and policy communicators to showcase innovative research on urbanization, climate and health.


Key is that researchers need only possess expertise in two aspects of the 3-topic workshop. We aim to introduce scholars of urbanization-climate, to scholars of climate-health, and to scholars of urbanization-health.  


Applicants must have a current research project in Latin America and should aim to come to the workshop to present ongoing work. We will also spend time brainstorming broader knowledge gaps and specific research projects or proposals designed to fill those gaps. 


Researchers from social and natural sciences are encouraged to apply.  Funds are available for partial reimbursement for domestic travel and lodging.


Applicants must be post-PhD and we aim for an interdisciplinary mix of junior and senior scholars.


To be considered for this workshop, please send a CV and a complete paper, working draft, or an extended abstract (including data description, methods, and preliminary results) by February 12, 2016. Decisions will be made by March 4th.


The conference organizers are Lori Hunter and Fernando Riosmena from CU-Boulder and Paty Romero-Lankao from NCAR.
