The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) invites pre-registration for the Ice Drilling Program Subglacial Access Working Group Science Planning Workshop. This workshop will convene 29-30 March 2019 in Herndon, Virginia.

The primary objective of this workshop is to provide focused feedback from subglacial research community into the IDP Long Range Science Plan. Specifically, organizers seek to stimulate discussions that will yield a prioritized list of science objectives and associated targets and requirements (sampling, drilling, and support needs) for the coming decade for the 2019 update to the IDP Long Range Science Plan.

Organizers plan to have a draft white paper at the end of the workshop and will solicit feedback on the draft after the workshop, but before it is finalized, for inclusion in the IDP Long Range Science Plan. White papers that were written after the 2016 subglacial access workshop can be downloaded online at https://icedrill.org/2016-subglacial-planning-workshop/.

Options will be available for remote participation for the plenary aspects of the workshop, and organizers welcome short presentations and/or written feedback from non-attendees.

There is no registration fee for the workshop, however those planning to attend should pre-register. Additional workshop information, including meeting logistics and the agenda, will be sent to pre-registered attendees.
