International Glaciological Conference
Ice and Climate Change: A View from the South

Valdivia, CHILE, 1-3 February 2010

We are pleased to announce the glaciological Conference "Ice and Climate Change: A View from the South" (VICC 2010) to be held in Valdivia, Chile, 1-3 February 2010. The objective of the Conference is to present new results and discuss ongoing cryospheric and climate changes in the Southern Hemisphere and their impacts and consequences on society and the environment. Although the main focus will be glaciology and climatology, we hope to foster interdisciplinary discourse about climate change through the contribution of other disciplines in earth sciences and social sciences.

The Conference is sponsored by Fundación Imagen de Chile and is organised by Centro de Estudios Científicos (CECS). Co-sponsors are the Climate and Cryosphere (CliC) Project of WCRP-IASC-SCAR, the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS), the Snow and Ice Working Group for Latin America of the International Hydrological Programme of UNESCO (IHP-GTNH), the International Glaciological Society (IGS), the Center for Advanced Studies in Aid Zones (CEAZA), CONICYT by the Bicentennial Science and Technology Programme, the Centro de Ingeniería de la Innovación (CIN) and Millennium Science Initiative(ICM). CliC (Scientific Steering Group), IHP-GTNH (national representatives) and APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists) will hold official meetings during the Conference. As a complement to the science, we will be organising a social programme to allow attendees to enjoy the beautiful summer landscape around Valdivia.
