The Hamburg University of Applied Sciences is pleased to inform that the call for papers for the third Worldwide Online Climate Conference CLIMATE 2010/KLIMA 2010 ( - 1-7 Nov 2010) has just opened. Be part of this worldwide climate-friendly event and use this unique opportunity to present and discuss your work with fellow researchers, practitioners, NGOs and the interested stakeholders from all around the world. 
CLIMATE 2010 is being organized in cooperation with UNEP, IPCC, WMO, FAO and further world bodies. Building on the success of the previous online conferences CLIMATE 2008/KLIMA 2008 and CLIMATE 2009/KLIMA 2009 with more than 1m visits and over 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers, this year's interactive, free of charge online event will specifically focus on "Climate Change and the Sustainable Management of Water Resources".
We encourage researchers from around the globe, in particular researchers from developing countries, to submit their scientific abstracts online at until 31 March 2010 at the latest to the unique CO2-friendly virtual conference, relating to one of the four following categories:
·         Category 1: Geochemical and physical impacts of Climate Change
·         Category 2: Socio-economic aspects of Climate Change (relating to water supply and use)
·         Category 3: Climate Change, policy-making and sustainable water use
·         Category 4: Projects on Climate Change and sustainable water use, in particular education and awareness-raising initiatives

All submissions will be subject to peer review - we would welcome the chance to receive a paper from you. Visit the conference home page at to send in your abstract and get a first glimpse of what the purely virtual conference is all about. The deadline for submission of abstracts is 31/3/2010.
