The annual international user meeting for the ice-flow model Úa will this year be held at Northumbria University, Newcastle, United Kingdom.

Úa is a finite-element ice-flow model. It is easy to use, robust, and an ideal tool to solve flow of ice sheets, ice shelves and alpine glaciers, and for ice-flow problems involving grounding line migration (https://sway.com/A3ihHbhXG59GwsYf).

The meeting is suitable for both new and experienced users.

As in previous years, there will be an introduction to the use of model and presentations by current users in the mornings. The afternoons can be used to set up and run models, and participants are encouraged to work on their own modelling problems.

One of the focal points of this year's meeting is ice-ocean interactions, and Katlin Naughten from BAS and Jan De Rydt from Northumbria University will give an overview over current Úa+MIGgcm coupling capabilites. Adrian Jenkins from BAS will also give a lector on ice+ocan interactions.

The number of places is limited to 20. There is no course fee. Participants are required to take care of their own accommodation and travel arrangements. There some scope for contributing towards travelling expenses in justified cases.

In response to feedback from last year meeting, there will be an optional further ÚaThon week (May 17-21) where participants can develop their models further under supervision.

Further details about the program will follow closer to the date of the meeting.
