In 2022, the IAHR International Symposium on Ice was 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, which was held at the École de Technologie Supérieure (Pavilion E-Maison des Étudiants) in downtown Montréal (1220 Notre-Dame St W, Montréal, Quebec H3C 1K5), provided 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.
