The CLIVAR Open Science Conference, and the associated Early Career Scientists (ECS) Symposium and Regional Stakeholder Forum will bring together prominent international scientists and the future generation of leaders for an unprecedented series of international meetings. It is expected that around 600 climate scientists from all around the world will attend the conference. The meetings will provide opportunities for young and senior scientists and practitioners from a variety of disciplines and countries to present their work, network and become more involved in CLIVAR climate and ocean research activities. This proposal is to support the attendance of 20-30 young scientists and students from Asia-Pacific developing countries to participate in both the Open Science Conference, and the associated Early Career Scientists Symposium. The program of the conference will consist of presentations from invited speakers, oral and poster presentations, and outreach events. The Early Career Scientists Symposium will have career building workshops, as well opportunities for the participants to discuss their scientific achievements and build collaboration with their peers while developing a strong network with colleagues from different countries. CLIVAR would like to actively engage early career scientists, especially those from the regions that are most vulnerable to climate change and variability.
