The conference will span five days (Monday – Friday) with a mix of keynote tutorials, invited and contributed oral, and contributed poster presentations. Sessions will be organized around four main conference themes, namely:

1. What determines the width of the tropical belt?

2. How and why has the tropical width changed in the past?

3. How and why might the tropical width change in the future?

4. What are the impacts for the oceans, cryosphere, hydrologic cycle, human society, and ecosystems?

Each topic will be covered in a half-day oral session that will include a longer invited tutorial/overview talk to ensure those who are not as familiar with a given session topic will be able to walk away with new knowledge and appreciation of the field. Each oral session will also include invited and contributed presentations, as well as a generous period for open discussion following each session. All posters will be shown for the duration of the conference, with formal viewings for each topic scheduled throughout the week.
