The Institute of Geophysics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic and the Czech National Committee of Geodesy and Geophysics, on behalf of the whole Czech scientific community, are happy to invite you to attend the XXVI General Assembly of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), which will take place in Prague on June 22 to July 2, 2015. We hope that our invitation will be accepted and we are ready to prepare an exciting multi-disciplinary conference to cover the topics of all eight scientific associations of the IUGG.
ASSW is the annual gathering of international organizations engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research. The purpose of the summit is to provide opportunities for coordination, collaboration and cooperation in all areas of Arctic science. IASC's (International Arctic Science Committee) 25th anniversary will be celebrated during ASSW2015. The summit presents an opportunity to review IASC contributions and recognize those who have been instrumental in its founding, development and growth.
Welcome to the American Geophysical Union’s 47th annual Fall Meeting! Join more than 20,000 Earth and space scientists, educators, students, and other leaders in San Francisco, California as they gather to present groundbreaking research and connect with colleagues.

The Earth Living Skin 2014: Soil, Life and Climate Changes is the first of a Conference of the Soil System Sciences (SSS) Division of the European Geosciences Union. The Conference Scientific Program will focus on the fundamental role of soil systems, multiphase complex organisms which generates and sustain life onto the planet. Soils are the skin of earth and therefore represent magnificent intermediate substrates where most of the key environmental phenomena occur and where land, climate, living organisms and humans contribute to define typical patterns and characteristics.
Over the last years people working on glacier forelands and on pro- or periglacial environments have brought forward highly interesting new aspects from a variety of geographic regions. Among them are really astonishing and unexpected results which raise the question what are local specifics and what are common traits and mechanisms in such environments. This calls for common approaches and joint actions on a super-regional scale.
The course will provide a basic introduction to the dynamics of glaciers and ice sheets with a focus on ice-climate interactions. The course is meant for Ph.D. students that work on (or will soon start working on) a glaciology-related climate project. The registration fee will be € 600. This includes lodging, full board, course material and excursion.
Lecturers include: T. Blunier, E. Bueler, D. Dahl-Jensen, A. Fowler, H. Gudmundsson, A. Jenkins, F. Navarro, F. Nick, A. Stroeven, C. Tijm-Reijmer, W. van Pelt, R. van de Wal, J. Oerlemans (convenor).
The Eighth SEDIBUD Workshop will be held at the Environmental Research Station (UFS, web: http://www.schneefernerhaus.de/en/home.html ) located close to the highest point of Germany Mount Zugspitze (2962 m above m.s.l., Wetterstein Mountains, Northern Calcareous Alps, Bavaria).
The Italian palaeobotanists and palynologists and the Department of Geoscience of the University of Padova and the Institute of Geosciences and Earth Resources - CNR - are sincerely pleased to invite all of you to Padova on August 26-31, 2014 for the forthcoming 9th EPPC.
Present day changes in climate and vegetation, as well as transformations in natural systems and landscape boosted by human forcing, urge the palaeobotanist and palynologist communities to pursue and investigate natural analogs in the geological record. These subjects will be among the topics of the Conference.
