About the Conference

Evaluating the responses of mountains to climate and other changes, and their resilience as social-ecological systems, requires the consideration of multiple and mutually interacting stressors. The IMC 2019 aims to encourage in-depth cross-disciplinary discussions towards a new understanding of mountain systems, their responses and resiliencies.

The IMC 2019 will take place 08 - 12 September 2019 in Innsbruck, Austria. It aims to build upon the three previous mountain conferences that took place in Perth, Scotland, continuing this special scientific conference series with a focus on mountain-specific topics. Hosted in the Alps, the IMC 2019 will provide an excellent opportunity for experts from different disciplines to come together and discuss mountain-related issues.

 Time Line


The core elements of the conference will be interactive workshops, with flash talks (standard presentation length 3min, moderators decide on presentation length) to introduce the participants and their inputs to the workshop. Detailed instructions and training will be offered to workshop moderators. Additionally, printed versions of all posters/infographics will be presented within a publicly accessible exhibition.

It is also possible to only submit a poster and join workshops as listener. All workshops will be open for listeners limited only by the room capacities. Details on the poster format etc. are available here
