Camp Cedar Glen near Julian, California

This year's WAIS workshop will be held in Southern California at the newly remodeled Camp Cedar Glen. Sponsored by NSF and NASA, the workshop will focus on marine ice-sheet and adjacent earth systems, with particular emphasis on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The workshop will follow the Antarctic Earth Sciences meeting also held at Camp Julian, October 13-15.

The meeting will follow a similar format as past meetings with a single session style and panel discussions following each scientific program session. This year we will be adding new features to the WAIS Workshop to increase accessibility for the wider community and to continue and push forward our community’s ongoing discussions surrounding diversity, inclusion, and retention.

We want to encourage the participation of graduate students and early career scientists, as well as scientists in fields relevant to West Antarctic Ice Sheet system, such as biologists, atmospheric scientists, computer scientists, and engineers.

The deadline for Abstract Submission has been extended to August 12, 5pm PDT. Abstract submission is separate from the registration process. Early-career travel support request deadline is also August 7. Registration deadline is September 10, but our workshop has reached capacity before this deadline in the past, so register early!
