ICOS Science Conference registration is open

16 March 2018

The registration to the 3rd ICOS Science Conference is open.

The Science Conference on Greenhouse Gases and Biogeochemical Cycles will be organized in Prague, Czech Republic from Tuesday 11th to Thursday 13th September 2018.

The conference gathers the top greenhouse gas scientists, young talents, and experts in climate change policy to share and discuss the latest scientific achievements and results in the field across three ICOS domains: ecosystems, atmosphere and oceans. The conference also opens the ICOScapes Photo Exhibition presenting ICOS stations and activities across Europe through gorgeous photographs.

The conference will host several key note presentations by prominent scientists and experts, such as Philippe Ciais, Associate Director at the Institut Pierre Simon Laplace and Giacomo Grassi, Scientific Officer at the Institute of Environment and Sustainability, Joint Research Centre of the European Commission.

The conference is also welcoming abstracts in one or several of the conference themes: "From data to services", "Integration between scientific domains", and "Integration towards remote sensing and modelling" (more about the themes below).

From Data to Services

Theme addresses the various types of services ICOS could offer for the society; whether it’s to the policy makers, scientists or the global organizations in the field of climate change.

Integration between scientific domains

Theme brings the cooperation between the scientific domains into the highlight. ICOS uniquely combines in-situ greenhouse gas observations across three fields; ecosystems, atmosphere, and oceans. With the integration of the domains, it can provide reliable, high-precision, standardized and quality-controlled data, which is open for all scientists.

Integration towards remote sensing and modelling

Theme discusses the combined efforts of various scientific fields. ICOS is a European landmark in in-situ observations of greenhouse gases. When combining these results with modelling and remote sensing, we can create a holistic and multidimensional picture on what is building up the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. This is necessary to understand climate change. In practice, we could, for example, produce more tailor-made information and data products, such as emission maps for the use of decision-making.
