About the Conference

Evaluating the responses of mountains to climate change, 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.

The core elements of the conference will be workshops, with short poster presentations (similar to Pico®) and extended discussions.
