Future of ICAM

The steady increase of submitted papers and of participants over the past four years (now regularly exceeding 200) indicates that ICAM remains firmly established as the European counterpart to the shorter series of the AMS Mountain Meteorology conferences. The sustained interest in mountain meteorology topics has led to a proposal that additional host countries be added after 2009. In June 2007, the ICAM steering committee adapted its terms of reference to invite offers from countries such as the UK and Iceland. Such a widening of the perspective may further broaden the focus of ICAM to include additional mountain areas and mountain research topics.
