This conference was the Second Scientific Meeting of the European Science Foundation Network SEDIFLUX Sedimentary Source-to-sink fluxes in cold environments, network directed by Achim Beylich. 95 participants from 15 countries were registered during the Conference which consisted of 2 days and a half of scientific communications. 5 invited keynote papers were given by Prof. Colin Thorn, Prof. Colin Ballantyne, Prof. Kevin Hall, Prof. Hugh French and Prof. John Dixon. 5 thematic sessions paraglacial dynamics, weathering, permafrost dynamics, periglacial dynamics, nival and snow-related processes of oral and poster papers have been given 31 talks and 23 posters. Accepted abstracts of workshop contributions have been published in a special volume of publications edited by the local Science Meeting organizer Etienne, 2005.
