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 establishing scientific meetings. IACS participates in scientific assemblies of the sister organizations IAG, IAGA, IAHS, IAMAS, IAPSO, IASPEI and IAVCEI and in the IUGG general assemblies. The IUGG assemblies occur every four years (next will be in Melbourne, Australia in 2011). The scientific assemblies also occur every fourth year but shifted four years relative to the IUGG assemblies. IACS also promotes and sponsors workshops and symposia organized by its Divisions, Working Groups as well as by other organizations.
