Venue and audience

The symposium will be held in the Harpa Conference Centre, in downtown Reykjavík, the capital of Iceland. A single, plenary session will be held on Monday, (22 August). The main sessions listed under the Sessions link are intended to provide overviews of the current status and trends in cryospheric research. Parallel sessions on sub-topics will be announced later. Meeting rooms will be made available for working groups to the extent possible. Poster sessions will also be organized and posters can be on display throughout the symposium. We seek participation from the scientific community and from various sectors of society affected by snow and ice, either through utilization, hazard prevention or in other ways.
