The OGGM workshop is an annual, informal meeting for developers, users, and future users of the Open Global Glacier Model ( For this third edition, we decided to open the event to the wider community.


This workshop has three main objectives:

1) State of OGGM: the first day will be spent with presentations from the participants about recent developments and results.

2) Future developments and visions for OGGM: the second day will be dedicated to general discussions and brainstorming about the future and goals of the OGGM project.

3) Tutorial: the third day is for current and future OGGM users to get to know the model internals, and learn how to set-up and customize a model run. This day will be rather technical and might be skipped if you do not plan to use the model yourself.

Who can participate?

Anyone interested in the model, or in glaciological modeling in general! In particular, we would like to encourage potential users and developers to join us to get to know each other and to gather first-hand information about the model internals. Note that in case of high interest we might have to limit the number of participants.

We encourage you to register if you are interested in using the model!
