    The conference aims to present an updated view on and advance understanding of the interhemispheric significance of rapid ocean and climate change by focusing on past periods of natural anomalous perturbation of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. Research groups from the marine and ice core palaeoclimatology and climate modeling communities will present the state-of-the-art of their research into the sources and interhemispheric propagation of abrupt ocean and climate signals. Six thematic sessions will integrate the palaeoclimatic evidence in a series of lectures that will be complemented by poster presentations. Time will be dedicated to the dialogue between the disciplines during plenary discussions and guided round table discussions involving senior scientists, young researchers and post-graduate students. It is a stated objective of the conference to encourage participation of early-stage and post-doctoral researchers. The conference programme will be complemented by roundtable discussions, a “talk show” on abrupt climate changes and poster sessions (including brief oral presentations).
