International Workshops on Ice Caves

 

The International Workshop on Ice Caves (IWIC) is a series of workshops devoted entirely to ice cave research. IWIC is the only conference focused on state-of-the-art in ice cave research, where international experts discuss ongoing research efforts and promote global cooperation in ice cave science and management.IWIC is a conference of the Glacier, Firn, and Ice Caves Commission of the International Union of Speleology

 

IWIC is held every two years, and moves from country to country. Here are highlighted only the last two editions, previous IWIC were in Italy, Austria, Russia, Slovakia, Romania
