International Conference on Climate change in Asia - 2018

Dear Colleagues!

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a great pleasure for us to invite you to the International Conference on Climate Change in Asia - 2018, which will be held from 21 to 22 August, 2018 at the Conference Hall of the Far Eastern Federal University (Russia, Vladivostok, Russky Island,  Far Eastern Federal University Campus). The meeting is hosted by the Far Eastern Federal University and the Botanical Garden-Institute of the Far Eastern Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences. The event is supported by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research.

This Conference will be  a unique opportunity to meet the top-level scientists in the field of Climatology and Environmental Sciences. The Conference will provide information on the most recent findings and scientific breakthroughs. It will also focus on application of scientific research in environmental policies and practical ways to mitigate climate change. I am sure, it will foster launching of the new collaboration projects in the field of Climate Change and Global Warming.

Join us for two concentrated and fascinating days of examining contemporary challenges and new advancements in Environmental research. We invite you to contribute and help us shape the event through submissions of your research abstracts, papers and e-posters.

The Organizing Committee is making every effort to ensure that your participation will be pleasant, scientifically fruitful and will give a rise to innovative ideas, contacts and cooperation. We hope that this conference will stay in your memory for a long time.  


On behalf of the Organizing Committee,

Prof. RAS, Kirill S. Golokhvast


Vice President for Research

Far Eastern Federal University  Chairman of Climate Change in Asia – 2018



The international conference of Climate Change in Asia – 2018 will be held from 21 to 22 August, 2018 at the Conference Hall of Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) in Vladivostok. Vladivostok is a city located in the Russian Far East, close to Asian Countries: China, Japan, Korea and Vietnam.

Therefore, one of the aims of this conference is to make Pacific region countries "scientifically closer", stimulate contacts and cooperation within scientists of Asian countries and to foster a “cooperation bridge” between the Russian and European scientific community with European scientists.

“Climate Change in Asia – 2018” is created as a forum for scientists and technologists mainly from Asian universities, academic institutions and industries. At this Conference they will be able to present their latest findings, consider and develop new biophysical processes, economic models, as well as the cost of natural capital. We hope that the “Climate Change in Asia – 2018” will build up new scientific contacts between experienced and young participants.
