The University of Edinburgh is no longer able to host the planned consecutive meetings of the IGS British Branch and UK Antarctic Science Conference this coming September.

We are now working with the IGS Early-Career Glaciology Group (EGG) and colleagues in the National Committee for Antarctic Research (NCAR) on some online alternatives to both meetings for later in the year. The details are to be confirmed and will come to this distribution list in due course, but they will now be separate meetings, and not tied to the previously circulated dates in early September.

Looking to 2021 and 2022, I'm pleased to notify you that the IGSBB committee have agreed that the University of Liverpool will host a September 2021 IGS British Branch (exact dates tbc), and that we at Edinburgh are now working on remounting a combined IGS British Branch / UK Antarctic Science Conference for 29 August - 2 September 2022.

Although the physical meeting of the International Glaciological Society British Branch is cancelled, there will be a virtual meeting organised by the IGS British Branch and the IGS EGG from 7–9 October 2020.

We are planning 3 half days. There will be both oral and poster sessions. Abstracts are due by 17 August.

Abstract submission is now open for the 2020 virtual IGSBB meeting.

Registration will be through the IGS portal and will be announced very shortly. Registration is free but you must register.
