The 25th annual West Antarctic Ice Sheet Workshop will be held this September at Stony Point Center in Stony Point, NY, followed seamlessly by the Thwaites Glacier Program meeting. The WAIS Workshop begins Sunday late afternoon, September 16 and ends with a 1-1/2 day section on Thwaites and Pine Island Glacier and the planned Thwaites Glacier
Program. On Wednesday afternoon, the discussion will turn to the Thwaites Program preliminary research and coordination, concluding Thursday with discussion on logistics for the future proposed field seasons. (The Thwaites awards have not yet been announced.) Please consider the relevance of these later sections to your own work when planning your stay.

Registration fees have not yet been determined, and we welcome people to attend both meetings or the one of most interest. More information will be shared in the coming months through this list.
