26th IAHR International Symposium on Ice

26th IAHR International Symposium on Ice

19-23 June 2022 Montreal, Canada Website

First Announcement

In 2022, the IAHR International Symposium on Ice will be back to its birthplace, Montréal, the largest city of Québec which is a North American hub for research on river and coastal ice.

Every year, Québec deals with many ice related challenges for public safety, water infrastructure like hydropower generation and water supply, ice cover use for transport and even winter leisure activities. The impacts of climate change on ice conditions have been disruptive on many fronts and have motivated many researchers to find science-based mitigative measures or predictive tools for adaptation.

The Symposium aims at providing a premier interdisciplinary venue for international researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present and discuss latest research, ideas, developments, and applications in all areas of ice engineering, and to determine the most significant tasks for investigation.

Call For Papers and Posters

The Symposium will cover various areas of ice research including river, lake, and sea ice, as well as their impacts on environmental ecosystems. Suggested topics include but are not limited to:

  • Ice Formation, Growth and Dynamics

  • Ice Mechanics and Properties

  • Ships and Navigation in Ice

  • Environmental Aspects related to Icy Waters

  • Waves and Ice

  • Winter Field Monitoring Instrumentation

  • Remote Sensing and Forecasting

  • Advances in Ice Numerical Modelling

  • River Ice Breakup and Jamming

  • Ice Related Flooding and Flood Mitigation

  • Ice-Structure Interaction 

  • Icebergs

  • Ice Management

  • Marine and Atmospheric Icing

  • Operations

Student Paper Competitions    

To encourage the attendance and participation of students, there will be a reduced registration fee for those currently enrolled in full time studies. There will also be a student paper competition. The student must be the primary author of the paper to be eligible for consideration.
