The 13th Conference on Halophilic Microorganisms.  

The International Conference on Halophilic Microorganisms is held every three years to gather the community of scientists working on the different aspects of halophilic microbes, from molecular and cellular biology, to ecology, and biotechnology.

  Official site

The 2nd Climate Observation Conference will be built around topics such as:

- How do global climate observations support climate policies?

- How well do current climate observations support the understanding of climate change and variability?

- Networks and systems – what improvements are needed to better meet user needs?

- Data processing, archiving and stewardship.

The registration page for the conference as well as an invitation for abstracts will be issued in March 2022 and more detail on the programme will be available at that time.


The IMC2022 will take place from September 11 – 15 2022 in Innsbruck, Austria. IMC2022 builds upon the previous mountain conferences and aims to continue this scientific conference series exclusively targeted towards mountain-research. Hosted in the Alps, IMC2022 provides an excellent opportunity for experts from different disciplines to discuss mountain-related issues in a cross-disciplinary setting with flexible session formats. The key goals of the conference are to synthesize and enhance our understanding of mountain systems, in particular their response and resilience to global change.
