Event Dates

The International Arctic Science Committee’s Network on Arctic Glaciology (IASC-NAG) invite registration and abstract submissions for the Workshop on the Dynamics and Mass Budget of Arctic Glaciers and IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting. These events will convene 22-24 January 2018 in Obergurgl, Austria.

The purpose of the meeting is to present and discuss new results on observations and modeling of the dynamics and mass budget of Arctic glaciers, including the Greenland ice sheet; to provide a forum for glaciologists and marine biologists to present and discuss their work and stimulate future collaborations; and to plan and coordinate field work with the aim of using available infrastructure and logistics in the most efficient way.

Submissions that comply with one of two special themes are encouraged:

Understanding atmosphere-glacier-ocean interactions and the implications for the pan-Arctic glacier mass budget and
The importance of Arctic glaciers for the Arctic marine ecosystem.
Besides addressing classical topics on Arctic Glaciology, this year the workshop will host a cross-cutting activity of the Marine and Cryosphere working groups of IASC, with the aim to bring together people from glaciology, marine ecology, and oceanography.

Contributions in the form of oral presentations and or posters are welcomed. Presentation will be 15-20 minutes, including discussion. For those poster presentations, time will be reserved in the program for presenters to give a short two- to three-minute introduction.

Abstracts submission and registration must be completed online using the Google form, at:

Please indicate whether you prefer oral or poster presentation and if you like to contribute to one of the special sessions.

Workshop support has been received through IASC and the IASC-Cryosphere Working Group. Depending on the number of participants, organizers may request a small registration fee (not more than 30 EUR), in order to ensure sufficient supply of coffee and other refreshments.
