IACS Scientific Assemblies, Symposia and Workshops

One of the primary goals of IACS is to promote the Cryospheric Sciences through scientific exchange. Thus, much effort goes into also promoting and sponsoring workshops and symposia organized by its Divisions, Working Groups as well as by other organizations.

IACS Scientific Assemblies occur every fourth year but shifted two years relative to the IUGG General Assemblies. The next will take place 2017 in Wellington, New Zealand.

IACS also participates in Scientific Assemblies of the sister organizations IAG, IAGA, IAHS, IAMAS, IAPSO, IASPEI and IAVCEI and in the IUGG general assemblies.
