International Society of Biometeorology

ICB 2021

The International Society of Biometeorology will hold its 1st virtual and 22nd International Congress of Biometeorology, Connecting Our World: Biometeorology 2021, from 20-22 September 2021.  The conference will have livestream events, focusing on invited keynote and plenary speakers, with substantial time devoted to collaborative discussions based on poster submissions aimed to accommodate participants across all time zones.

With its virtual format, the primary goal of Connecting Our World: Biometeorology 2021 is to bring together those with interests across the spectrum of biometeorology from all parts of the world at all career stages, to partake in this event and network with current and future colleagues.

We encourage submissions on all areas of biometeorology: animal, plant, and human.  This can include agriculture, forestry, tourism, ecology, the built environment, human health, society, epidemiology, balneotherapy, aerobiology, citizen science, the Universal Thermal Comfort Index, sustainability, physiology, extreme events, natural hazards, and warning systems.  We will have a special plenary on the role of biometeorology in the COVID-19 era.

The website will serve as the official site of the conference.  The abstract deadline is midnight EDT 29 July 2021. Registration for the conference will begin in July.  Please direct questions to
