- Prof. Dr. Georg Kaser (University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria) is one of the IPCC lead authors of WP1 of the 4th and 5th IPCC assessment report and will give a talk on his experience on climate change science communication to the public (keynote).
- Dr. Thorsten Kiefer (PAGES International Project Office, Bern, Switzerland) will speak on behalf of Future Earth and will present their work on engaging young and early career scientists.
- Marlene Klockmann (Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Hamburg, Germany) is one of the early members of the young earth system scientists (YESS) community (http://www.yess-community.org/) and will give on talk on their current projects and goals and on how this independent network for young scientists aims to increase interdisciplinary scientific communication.
