What is ICYESS?

ICYESS is an international and interdisciplinary conference organised by and for young scientists (Master's and PhD students as well as young PostDocs). The conference will bring together scientists from various disciplines contributing to the understanding of processes and interactions in the Earth system. This also includes natural and anthropogenic forces of its transformation, the impacts of global change on ecological and social systems as well as human responses to this change. This conference addresses natural, social and political sciences, economics and sustainability research.

The conference continues the Young Scientists Conference series initiated by the three German Marine and Climate Science Clusters of Excellence in Bremen, Hamburg and Kiel. This time we invite all of you to join us in Hamburg. Independent of your current institution, if you consider yourself a young Earth system scientist, ICYESS is for you.

What is the aim of ICYESS?

The primary aim of the conference is to promote interdisciplinary exchange and mutual understanding between the diversity of research fields in Earth system science. ICYESS gives you the opportunity to present and discuss your research in an interactive and innovative way. Moreover, the conference provides the possibility to expand your networks at an early career stage.
