The congress is regularly attended by up to 5,000 experts and top scientists from hundreds of countries, which are united by the study of Earth and its physical, chemical and mathematical properties, including its environment in space.
The union unites 8 international associations: International Association of Cryospheric Sciences (IACS), the International Association of Geodesy (IAG), the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's interior (IASPEI), International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI), International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) and the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO). In addition, the coordinated research also involves another six interdisciplinary non-governmental orgnizations.
Interpenetration of these scientific specializations is the reason for the extraordinarily extensive scientific program. The congress will present an amazing 5,700 abstracts and research papers. This corresponds to the extreme length of the congress, the longest in the history of the Czech Republic. The total of 11 days will offer, in addition to 230 symposia, scientific meetings and seminars, panel discussions and organizational meetings.
