ICCFR2 – International Conference on Coal Fire Research, 19-21 May 2010, Berlin

The Second International Conference on Coal Fire Research (ICCFR2) will take place from 19th – 21st May 2010 in Berlin, Germany.

As a man-made hazard affecting limited natural resources in specific locales as much as the atmosphere at large, spontaneous coal seam fires are a delicate object of scientific research. Their very complex nature responds to a whole range of disciplines and necessitates a concerted interdisciplinary and international effort for effective mitigation.

The repercussions of the phenomenon spread right into the realm of society and politics. Coal fires are of relevance not only to scientists and mine managers but also to policy-makers and environmental lobbyists. Under the ever more pressing concern of global climate change, Berlin 2010 may rightly be seen in one trajectory with ongoing multilateral moves toward carbon reduction and management, including the COP15 conference in Copenhagen 2009 and its follow-up.

More information about the venue and the first call of papers are available on the official website:
