The International Interdisciplinary Conference on the Environment, IICE brings together academics, researchers, and practitioners to approach environmental issues from an interdisciplinary perspective. 


The mission of the IICE is to facilitate the exchange of information among people from different countries and disciplinary backgrounds so that participants can listen, discuss, and consider new concepts to implement in their area of study. 

We believe that a cross-discipline and cross-boundary exchange is beneficial and essential if we address the complex, multifaceted environmental issues of the present day and the future. Our goal is for conferencegoers to obtain new professional connections in a safe, inclusive, and diverse space. 

At the IICE, you'll expand your professional network, and learn about today's most pressing human and planetary problems presented in a scholarly research format, while also attending interactive discussions, workshops, and keynote addresses.
