Microstructural evolution during HT deformation: advances in the characterization techniques and consequences to physical properties
When: 
Mon, 03/30/2015 to Fri, 04/03/2015
Where: 
Montpellier, France

This meeting, organized in the framework of the ESF project MicroDIce, aims to present a multi-scale view of our present understanding of the processes controlling plasticity and recrystallization at high temperature in geomaterials (ice and rocks). Recent advances in electron microscopy (e.g. HR-SEM-EBSD) allow characterization of the microstructure in complex multi-phase materials from the nanometre to the centimetre scale.

When:

Where: 
Stockholm, Sweden

The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Arctic Section is supporting a 'Planning Workshop on joint Arctic Research using the Swedish Class 1A Icebreaker Oden.' This workshop is held in collaboration with the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat (SPRS) and the Swedish Research Council (Formas and VR). The US delegation will be led by Drs. Patricia Matrai (Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences) and Peter Minnett (RSMAS, U. Miami), as workshop co-organizers with Dr. Caroline Leck (Stockholm U.).

Reading, United Kingdom

This workshop will bring together anyone interested in the predictability of polar sea-ice on seasonal to inter-annual timescales. Contributions will include presentations on understanding causes of inter-annual polar climate variability, as well as idealized predictability studies, and operational forecasts. This workshop is a follow-up to the Sea Ice Prediction Workshop held in Boulder in April 2014. A call for abstracts will appear in January.

ASSW is the annual gathering of international organizations engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research. The purpose of the summit is to provide opportunities for coordination, collaboration and cooperation in all areas of Arctic science. IASC's (International Arctic Science Committee) 25th anniversary will be celebrated during ASSW2015. The summit presents an opportunity to review IASC contributions and recognize those who have been instrumental in its founding, development and growth.

When: 
Sun, 05/03/2015 to Tue, 05/05/2015
Where: 
Chicago, Illinois

The purpose of this conference is to bring researchers, practitioners and policy makers to a world-wide platform to share research and discuss creative solutions related to global climate change impacts. The conference will emphasize the importance of global climate change impacts on agriculture while covering a range of topics related to climate change impacts on land and water resources.

When: 
Thu, 05/07/2015 to Fri, 05/08/2015
Where: 
Milano, Italy

The next Alpine Glaciology Meeting (AGM) will be held in Milano, Italy on 7 and 8 May, 2015, with a field trip on 9 May at Forni Glacier (Stelvio National Park). As usual, this meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers or permafrost. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young scientists are especially encouraged to present their work in progress.

The meeting will be held at University of Milano (Italy) (Università degli Studi di Milano, Via Festa del Perdono, 7).
