The Peatland Science Centre (PSC) invites you to the international Peatland Science Conference (iPSC): Three days dedicated to exploring scientific and practical topics concerning peatlands.

The significance of peatlands is no longer confined to the scientific domain, but has also become a matter of public awareness. Owing to their characteristically wet and therefore anaerobic soil conditions, peatlands rank among the world’s most important carbon reservoirs. In recent years, the preservation and conservation of peatlands has increasingly become a focal point of political discourse and environmental policy.

Over the span of two days, the conference will delve into scientific and practical discussions centered around peatlands, complemented by field excursions to the peatlands of Bavaria on the third day. The conference offers a platform for the exchange of the latest research results, innovative approaches and best practices in management of peatland ecosystems.

The Call for Abstracts is open from April 16 to May 31, 2024.
