4th Interdisciplinary Antarctic Earth Sciences conference
From Sunday 13 October 2019
To Tuesday 15 October 2019
Location Julian, CA, USA

The meeting is intended to provide a forum to present and discuss results of exciting new Antarctic research across the spectrum of the Earth Sciences and to encourage conversations about future interdisciplinary collaborations. As with the previous meetings, we will follow a single session format that will include invited and contributed presentations, poster sessions, and informal discussion time to explore new collaborative research opportunities. The program will be guided by an interdisciplinary organizing committee that will identify unifying session themes based on community interest along with the critical questions identified by the U.S. Polar Research Board and the International Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research. More details about session themes, registration cost, travel support, etc., will follow in the coming weeks. Both food and lodging will be available for all as part of the registration cost  at Camp Cedar Glen. We anticipate the abstract deadline will be in early August. The meeting will immediately precede the West Antarctic ice sheet (WAIS) meeting, which will be held Oct. 16-18.

This biennial conference is intended to provide a forum to present and discuss the results of your exciting new Antarctic research across the spectrum of the Earth Sciences from deep time and deep earth to modern biological interaction with surficial processes.  We will have multidisciplinary sessions for talks and posters (see below for meeting details and logistics).

Overarching Theme:  Intersecting Spheres 

  • Cause and Effect: Inferring Process from Pattern in Antarctic Earth History

  • Intentional & Unintentional Collisions: Outcomes of Targeted and Serendipitous Collaboration

  • Sticky Edges: Transformative Science at the Margins of Emerging or Existing Disciplines

Abstract deadline: Aug. 16

Registration deadline:  Aug. 23
