The International Glaciological Society (IGS) and the Basque Centre for Climate Change (BC3) together with UPV/EHU are glad to announce the International Symposium on ICE IN A SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY (ISS), which will take place in the Basque Country in June 2022. Its First Circular is available here.
The thematic focus of the Symposium is the recent interrelations of glaciology with the natural sciences, mathematics, applied and social sciences and the humanities. All interpretations of this theme are welcome as submissions for presentation at the meeting (i.e. papers, presentations and other type of activities such as performances, workshops, lectures, exhibitions etc.). More info.
This symposium will attract experts in climate, engineering, environment, policy, economy, philosophy, arts and other specialties that will join forces to seek inter- and transdisciplinary solutions for sustainable development and climate change awareness. See the committees.
Participants wishing to present a paper (either oral or poster) at the Symposium will be required to submit an abstract by 5 February 2022. The Council of the International Glaciological Society has decided to publish a thematic issue of the Annals of Glaciology on topics consistent with the Symposium themes. Participants are encouraged to submit manuscripts for this Annals volume.
The ISS Symposium will be held at Bizkaia Aretoa UPV/EHU, Conference Auditorium, Bilbao (Spain). The main presentation sessions of the Symposium will take place from Monday morning, 6 June, until the afternoon of Friday 10 June. On World Environment Day, Sunday 5 June, there will be several celebration activities and a pre-symposium icebreaker event in the late afternoon at Bizkaia Aretoa UPV/EHU. Different Social Events are scheduled throughout the Symposium, including excursions to different locations in the Basque Country and the traditional simposium banquet at the Guggenheim Museum. More info about events and excursions.
Come and attend* what will be a stimulating, innovative and productive symposium in a beautiful setting in the north coast of Spain!
