  Report - CL1 Open Session on Climatology and Palaeoclimatology (co-listed in SSP)

Six oral presentations room # 6 (F1) and 28 posters.
Starting by the first presentation with 75 persons attending the session, the audience culminated with about 180 persons, especially during the presentation by Prof. Rick Fairbanks. The authors respected their time, no need for the conveners to interrupt the talks, so that questions were available. The topics were covering the aim of an open session from vegetation modeling under present conditions to the Cretaceous sea surface seasonality.
The oral session was preceded by the poster sessions, which was organized using a large LCD monitor connected to a laptop. After some written requests, some participants of the poster session provided one or two slides to announce their poster. Despite the interest of this device, this was not that much practical as the screen was not wide enough, the place among the poster sessions too much noisy and so some participants complain that when they were doing their short presentation, there were persons attending their poster leading to a kind of frustration. Our recommendation is the large screen system was to be developed is to install such device between two posters so that the two closest participants could share it. Or this device could be used in a central place between several posters in circle, but in that case this would require a complete reorganization of the posters boards and of the posters rooms.
