Calendar of meetings and events relevant to the U.S. ice drilling science and technology communities.
AGU Fall Meeting 2022
AGU Fall Meeting is the most influential event in the world dedicated to the advancement of Earth and space sciences. Every year, AGU Fall Meeting unites the Earth and space science community to share findings, connect like-minded scientists from around the world, and advance our profession and shared passion for the impact of science.
AGU Fall Meeting 2022 will be held in Chicago and online everywhere 12 - 16 December 2022. More than 25,000 attendees from more than 100 countries will convene to explore how Science Leads the Future. We will welcome a diverse community of scientists, students, journalists, policymakers, educators and organizations who are working toward a world where scientific discovery leads to scientific solutions, and where our global collaborations and partnerships can carry us into a sustainable future.
26th Alpine Glaciology Meeting
The 26th Alpine Glaciology Meeting will be held at the WSL headquarters in Birminsdorf, not far from Zürich 9-10 February 2023.
EGU General Assembly 2023
The EGU General Assembly 2023 brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
2nd Annual US Ice Core Open Science Meeting
The second annual US Ice Core Open Science Meeting will be held May 8-10, 2023, at the beautiful Center for Urban Horticulture at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA.
This meeting is intended for anyone interested in ice core science or related fields, including ice-core analysis, ice or subglacial drilling, glacier geophysics that supports or depends on ice core records, paleoclimate, and contemporary climate and ice sheet change.
Goals of the meeting include 1) sharing the latest science, 2) discussing future ice core science projects in both polar regions and in alpine environments, 3) providing career development opportunities, and 4) improving communication about ice-core and related science both within and beyond the scientific community. We hope to attract a diverse group of participants, including those who may not have extensive experience working with ice cores.
While this meeting is primarily oriented at researchers in the US, international colleagues are welcome to attend.
The meeting will begin midday on Monday, May 8, and end in the late afternoon of Wednesday, May 10. The meeting will be preceded by an ICECReW pre-meeting workshop for early career researchers focused on proposal development and intentional collaboration (more details soon).
Details on hotel rooms, travel support, and other aspects of the meeting will be publicized in February. To ensure you do not miss announcements, we recommend joining the Hercules Dome mailing list.
See you in Seattle next Spring,
Organizing Committee: Cate Bruns, Seth Campbell, T.J. Fudge, Kaitlin Keegan, Bess Koffman, Heidi Roop
International Symposium on the Edges of Glaciology
The conference will focus on edges in glaciology, which may include: beds of ice sheets or glaciers, supraglacial processes, crevasses, calving, grain boundaries (of ice and snow crystals), and perhaps philosophical edges.
If you are hoping to attend the symposium please indicate your ‘Expression of Interest’. This will ensure you will receive all information relevant to the symposium.
The First Circular is now available as a PDF.
15th International Conference on the Physics and Chemistry of Ice (PCI-2023)
This conference will cover a wide range of topics related to physical, chemical, biological, geological, and environmental aspects of ice. The topics will range from fundamental to applied research, and will include laboratory, field, modeling, and computational work. We expect to have interdisciplinary discussions of ice. Session topics include:
- Surfaces and interfaces of ice
- Mechanical, dielectric, and optical properties of ice
- Ice phases, amorphous ice, and glass transition
- Ice and life
- Reactions on/in ice
- Ice and snow in the cryosphere
- Ice in space
- Clathrate hydrates
