81 focus sessions with > 300 conveners from all continents (expect Antarctica) have been submitted to IMC2022. The sessions cover a broad range of research topics important for mountain systems, related to climate and global change, to social as well as natural sciences, to current threats and solutions for adaption, as well as strategies towards sustainable development of mountain regions. Overall, the very high number of submissions yields an excellent basis for a unique conference experience and collective efforts for a better understanding of mountain systems. Thus, many thanks are due to all mountain researchers that started to engage for IMC2022! 

Outlook: Within the next days, session proposals will be analyzed, discussed and clustered. By mid of December 2021, we expect to have all sessions published the IMC2022 website.
