About BISC

Ricardo Tlatelpa

Bergen International Student Conference is an academic conference by and for university students. In October 2017 two UiB students were hired part-time as conference coordinators, and together with a reference group from CET and a team of highly committed student volunteers, they dedicated themselves for six months to bring about a two-day conference in early April 2018 on the theme “Climate and Society: Transformations in the 21st Century”. With almost one hundred speakers and participants from all over the world, BISC was a huge success, and it was immediately followed by the decision for this to be an annual event.
