The Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research at the University of Bergen in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory is proud to host the 2014 Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM) Workshop. The workshop will take place at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research at the University of Bergen, located in Bergen, Norway, from Monday, June 2nd to Wednesday, June 4th, following the IGS conference in Chamonix.

Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since last year’s workshop, including user-requested features (i.e. a new Python port, support for new OS/Platforms, etc) will be presented. Also, we invite participants to showcase their work during an open poster session. Details for participating in this poster session will be available on the registration website.

A limited amount of travel support may be provided by CliC (Climate and Cryosphere) to help students or early-career scholars attend the workshop. Details on applying for travel support will be provided on the registration page. In addition, there is no fee for participation in the workshop.

We hope this workshop will generate fruitful interactions between our team, the growing community of ISSM users, and the broader cryosphere community.
