10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference

Date: June 16, 2016

The Swiss science community and the Oeschger Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of Bern are organising the 10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC10). The event, which will run from 21 to 25 August 2017 in Bern, will draw natural and social scientists to the mountains of Switzerland to explore the links between human actions and global climate. According to the conference programme:

The conference will be organized around themes and “Grand Challenges” that integrate across different reservoirs, ecosystems and disciplines. The overarching goal is to elucidate how human activities, including fossil fuel emissions and land use, influence the coupled carbon-climate system

The conference will tackle four chief themes. They are "The Contemporary Carbon Cycle," "The Paleo Perspective: Patterns, Processes and Planetary Boundaries," "Biogeochemical Processes" and "Scenarios of the Future Earth and Steps toward Long-term Earth System Stability."

Interested participants will be able to register or submit abstracts for presentations for the conference beginning in September 2016. Check back in often for more information.
