Lancaster Environment Centre and Lancaster Data Science Institute are pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 2017 British Branch meeting of the International Glaciological Society.

The conference will follow the traditional format of oral and poster presentations, spread over two days, on a wide range of snow and ice research and we have three keynote speakers scheduled to present on topics including ice core science, glacier and ice sheet hydrology and glacio-volcanism. Delegates from overseas are very much welcome to attend.

Keynote talks will be given by:

  • Dr. Robert Mulvaney, British Antarctic Survey
  • Prof. John Smellie, University of Leicester
  • Prof. Jemma Wadham, University of Bristol

We also hope to deliver a one-day workshop on Tuesday the 5th September aimed at postgraduate students and postdocs on the theme of data science for cryospheric research.

There will be an ice-breaker barbeque at the Lancaster Environment Centre on Tuesday the 5th September and the conference dinner will take place at Lancaster Brewery on the evening of Wednesday 6th. En-suite accommodation has been reserved on-campus and a number of other accommodation options are available for those who wish to make their own arrangements.
