| Contribution proposal | Social Resilience to Climate Change in the Past

Though a few may not be able to attend the conferences as registrations are closing today, researchers are encouraged to contribute to the journal special issue on the theme "Social Resilience to Climate Changes in the Past". Guest editors are Liang Emlyn Yang, Mara Weinelt, Ingmar Unkel, Joana Seguin for the session 11, scheduled on Thursday and Friday, March 14-15.

Both the journals Quaternary Science Reviews and Environmental Research Letters have expressed interests in hosting such a special issue, while their formal decision will be made upon receiving our complete proposal with details of the intended papers.  QSR focuses strongly on natural sciences while ERL welcomes social/historian papers. And, ERL is an Open Access journal that charges publishing fees.

While papers for the special issue will be primarily from our conference participants, contributions from outside could also be considered.  If you are interested, please send me your commitment (first draft of full paper) one week before the conference, i.e. March 04, 2019, which must include the following information:

- Title of your paper
- Detail information of all authors, full names, affiliation, emails

- Main text of at least 1500 words; additional graphes and tables are welcome
- Preferred/suitable journal for your paper: QSR or ERL, and please state reasons
