Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The next IASC Workshop on the Dynamics and Mass Budget of Arctic Glaciers and Network on Arctic Glaciology annual meeting will take place at the University Center Obergurgl, in Obergurgl, Austria, 28-30 January 2020.

In addition to sessions on glacier dynamics and mass balance, the workshop will host a cross-cutting activity by the Cryosphere and Marine Working Groups of IASC on “Glacier-ocean interactions and their impact on Arctic marine ecosystems”. This activity aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum by bringing together glaciologists, marine ecologists and oceanographers interested in glacier-ocean interactions.

You can register for the workshop and submit your abstracts (max 300 words) by completing this online form (copy paste the following link into your web browser):

Registration deadline is November 15, 2019.

Contributions in the form of oral presentations and/or posters are welcome. Presentation will be 15-20 minutes, including discussion. For those who bring a poster, time will be reserved in the program to give a short 2-3 minute introduction to the poster. We plan for two and a half days of talks and poster presentations, as well as open-forum discussions.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Obergurgl,

Jakob Abermann, Michael Kuhn, Ward van Pelt and Thorben Dunse
