We would like to inform you that the 28th International Polar Conference unfortunately has to be cancelled. Due to the special situation caused by the Corona crisis, currently large meetings cannot be realized allover in Germany until end of August, and furthermore, the venue at the University of Cologne might not be available because of possible shifts of lectures and seminars until the end of the summer term, that means, end of September 2020. We very much regret to take this decision. We hope to carry out the 28th International Polar Conference at a later time.

When: 
Tue, 09/08/2020 to Sat, 09/19/2020

UPDATE:

With great regret we inform you that the Karthaus course planned for September 2020 has to be cancelled. We have discussed the situation with the teaching staff, and all agreed that there is no way around it. There are too many uncertainties concerning the development of the covid-19 crisis, especially with regard to international travel.

We sincerely hope that the next Karthaus course will be in September 2021, in a world that is in a better shape and in which we can move more freely again!

When: 
Wed, 09/09/2020

Scientific research into complex coastal systems and the interplay with coastal hazards is vital for predicting, responding to and mitigating threats in these regions. Understanding the risks associated with coastal hazards requires a holistic Earth Systems approach that integrates improved understanding of and, where possible, predictions about natural, social, and technological processes with efforts to increase the resilience of coastal systems.

These are unsettled times, but we are holding out hope for convening the 5th International Frozen Pasts Conference (FP5) on the human dimensions of glacial and ice patch environments at all latitudes and on all continents in mid-September.

FP5 represents the continuing tradition of the conferences themed around glacial and ice patch archaeology begun in Bern in 2008. The schedule for the conference is described on the website.
