International Carbon Dioxide Conference

21.08.2017 to 25.08.2017

Interlaken, Switzerland

The insight that anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) perturb climate with far-reaching implications for natural and socio-economic systems has led to a series of scientific meetings to improve the understanding of the carbon cycle and of its interactions with the Earth System.

The 10th International Carbon Dioxide Conference (ICDC10) will provide participants with an integrated, interdisciplinary view of the global carbon cycle and its perturbation by humans.

Conference themes include

  • the contemporary carbon cycle, its trends, variability and observations;
  • the paleo perspective and planetary boundaries;
  • biogeochemical processes and their feedbacks and linkages with ecosystems, climate and socio-economic processes;
  • scenarios for the future and steps toward long-term Earth system stability,
  • carbon cycle research in support of the Paris agreement.


Plenary sessions and extended poster sessions constitute the backbone of the conference program.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM

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. For an overview of the themes, see: www.icdc10.unibe.ch/program/themes/
