Keynote speakers: Prof.Zhaohui Lin

From International Center for Climate and Environment Sciences (ICCES), Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China

Topic: the CAS Earth system model and its applications

Prof. LIN Zhaohui received his B.S. from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1990, and his Ph.D. from the Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences  in 1995. He ever worked in the Bureau of Meteorology of Australia, the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, and City University of Hong Kong as visiting scholar. Currently, Prof. Lin is a member of the coordinating council of the Commission on Science and Technology for Sustainable Development in the South (COMSATS). He is also serving as deputy editor-in-chief of “Climatic and Environmental Research” Journal, an editor for the "Chinese Journal of Atmospheric Sciences" and  "Journal of Meteorological Research". His research interests include the development of CAS Earth system model, climate and hydrological disasters forecast from subseasonal-to-seasonal time scale, atmosphere-land-hydrology interaction, dust aerosol and its interaction with climate. He has been the Principal Investigators for projects, including the CAS Strategic Priority Research Program, the international S&T Cooperation Program of China, and projects funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the National Natural Science Foundation of China. Prof. Lin has published more than 110 peer-reviewed papers in both international and domestic journals, and received the State Natural Science Award in 2005, the Award for Progress of Science and Technology by the Ministry of Education in 2006, and the outstanding Science and Technology Achievement Prize of the CAS in 2011.

Keynote speakers:Prof.Xiaoming Wang

From Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources in Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), China

Topic: Climate Adaptation for Risk Reduction

Dr Xiaoming Wang is professor in Climate Adaptation and Sustainable Development, Northwest Institute of Eco-Environment and Resources in Chinese Academy of Science (CAS). He was a Senior Principle Scientist in Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia, leading the Sustainable Cities and Coasts theme. He is also adjunct professor of Monash University and Swinburne University of Technology in Australia. He has extensive experiences working on climate impact and adaptation related projects of national significance. He was a contributing author to the Australasia chapter in the IPCC AR5, and a leading author of 2nd Assessment Report of Climate Change and Cities (ARC3-2). He published near 300 journal and conference papers, book chapters, and technical reports cross multi-disciplines. He was also involved in Australian Aid Development Programs in East Asia, including Vietnam, Indonesia and Philippines, closely related to climate change adaptation and natural disaster risk reduction.


Keynote speakers: Assit.Prof. Jasper Van Vliet

From Institute of Environment Studies, VU University Amsterdam

Topic: Model based assessment of land use change for sustainable development.

Jasper van Vliet is an assistant professor at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) of the VU University Amsterdam. In his research he aims to better understand land use changes and their impacts on society and the environment. While land use change is a global phenomenon, it is manifested in local realities. Hence to understand these processes from all perspectives he employs a wide range of research methods, including case study analysis, spatial analysis, meta‐studies, and land‐use modelling. Jasper is leader of the Global Land Project’s working group on rural‐urban interactions, and he leads an international research project on trade‐ offs related to improved food security in Laos and Myanmar. He has published > 30 papers in ISI‐listed journals, and contributed to > 30 conference presentations.
