Program

The final program of the symposium is provided here.

The symposium will include keynote lectures, invited and contributed presentations, and working sessions that review and update stratospheric ozone layer research, the development and assessment of policies to mitigate stratospheric ozone loss, possible parallels and relevant lessons learned that might benefit climate change science and policy, and communication of climate change to the public.

It will be open to scientists, government and non-government policy officials, and representatives from industry, who are interested in science and policy addressing environmental protection, in general, and climate change, in particular. World-renowned atmospheric chemists and other scientists, who have made important contributions to stratospheric ozone research, will be invited to deliver keynote speeches. In addition, invited presentations on the regulatory and policy aspects of stratospheric ozone and climate changes will be planned from the policy and industry communities. A young scientist forum will be planned in the symposium, and the agenda will include oral and poster presentations from young scientists on the subjects of research in atmospheric sciences and climate change and integration between science and policy.

Keynote speakers include Drs. Ralph Cicerone (President of National Academy of Science), Mario J. Molina (1995 Chemistry Nobel Prize Winner), Susan Solomon (Winner of National Medal of Science), and Robert T. Watson (Former IPCC Chair).

Former President George H. W. Bush, senior cabinet members, and congressional representatives will discuss the history, implementation, and impacts of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA). Title VI of CAAA deals specifically with Stratospheric Ozone and Global Climate Protection.

Oral and Poster Presentations:
