Welcome to Brazil! Welcome to ICHNIA 2022 – The 5th International Congress on Ichnology!

ICHNIA 2022 will be held on April 4th - 8th, 2022 in Florianópolis Island, Santa Catarina State, southern Brazil, in the Canto da Ilha Hotel and Convention Center.

Every four years, ichnologists from around the world join in a selected place to discuss the progress of our science, share experiences and ideas, and celebrate One Ichnology! With the first edition in 2004 in Trelew, Argentina, ICHNIA – The International Congress on Ichnology took place in Krakow (Poland), St. John, Newfoundland (Canada), and Idanha-a-Nova (Portugal). Brazil had been chosen to house the fifth edition of ICHNIA, and we are proud to be the next hub of Ichnology and to share with you a few of the vast heritage of ancient and modern biogenic structures. The 5th edition of ICHNIA was planed to be in 2020, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was postponed to April 2022.

The Canto da Ilha Hotel will be the official house of ICHNIA 2022. To experience the spirit of One Ichnology! philosophy, the ICHNIA 2022 Organizing Team expects that all participants stay accommodated at the hotel during the whole event. The hotel counts with 48 rooms that offer single, double, or triple-based accommodation in single or double beds, with private bathroom, local cable TV, fridge, and a balcony to the garden. Prices include free parking (if you come by car), free wifi and a complimentary breakfast.

Room reservations will be made exclusively by the ICHNIA 2022 Registration Form. The ICHNIA 2022 Organizing Team will transfer all reservation requirements to the hotel staff. ICHNIA 2022 is a family friend event, children and companions are welcome.
