As in the past, the objective of the conference is to provide a multidisciplinary forum for all aspects of modern carbon cycle research pertinent to understanding the natural and anthropogenic controls of atmospheric carbon dioxide and its interactions in the global Earth system with a special focus on the contemporary anthropogenic perturbation.Main conference topics will include:

- Measurement and observational aspects and techniques (atmospheric, oceanic and terrestrial carbon measurements, monitoring networks, remote sensing, isotopes, ice-core and other paleo-carbon observations, new observational techniques, forward and inverse modeling)

- Assessments and syntheses of human and climate drivers, of key processes and of regional and global carbon balances including their spatiotemporal trends and variability

- Carbon cycle modeling studies for the estimation of past, present and future CO2 sources and sinks including coupled carbon cycle - climate modeling studies for the quantification of climate-biogeochemistry feedbacks, and model-data fusion approaches

- Assessments of potentials and vulnerabilities of carbon sequestration, carbon cycle management and interactions with human activities.
