Davos Atmosphere and Cryosphere Assembly DACA-13
DACA-13 – Air, Ice & Process Interactions
“Air, Ice & Process Interactions” – this is the overarching theme of the Davos Atmosphere and Cryosphere Assembly DACA-13, which will be held in Davos from 8 – 12 July 2013. DACA-13, a WSL and SLF event, is jointly organized by the IUGG associations IACS and IAMAS, and a Swiss national organizing committee with representatives from WMO, MeteoSwiss, SCNAT, PMO Davos, SLF Davos, PSI, ETH Zurich and University of Bern. Davos Congress and Destination Davos Klosters will support the organization of DACA-13.
DACA-13 will be held in the Swiss mountain resort of Davos, which can be reached by train from Zurich Airport in about 2.5 hours. Davos, Europe's highest city, is situated in the Eastern part of the Swiss Alps on 1560 meters above sea level. It offers a very advanced congress infrastructure and a wide range of accommodation from the simple hostel to elegant five-star lodgings. While being at the pulse of international business and research, Davos has kept a pleasant village atmosphere. The stunning alpine environment renders every visit exceptionally enjoyable.
