We are pleased to announce that on 7th – 11th April 2014 the Centre for Ice and Climate (University of Copenhagen) will be hosting a workshop on subglacial processes, focusing on the role of sediment and water.

The workshop is aimed at PhD students, Masters students and early career scientists. During the week we will cover topics in both observations and modelling through a series of featured talks, hands on exercises and discussion sessions. Confirmed speakers include Doug Benn, (UNIS/St. Andrews) and Dorthe Dahl-Jensen, (Centre for Ice and Climate, University of Copenhagen). A full programme along with further details will be announced within the next few weeks. We hope that the workshop will provide a base for exciting discussions and lots of networking between the participants.

There is no registration fee, but participants are expected to pay for their own travel and accommodation.

All participants are encouraged to present their own work (either as a poster or a short oral presentation) and will be rewarded 2 ECTS points for participation.

The workshop is supported by the Centre for Ice and Climate and the Niels Bohr Institute (University of Copenhagen), Aarhus University and the SVALI project (Stability and Variations of Arctic Land, Nordic Centre of Excellence).
