We are sorry to announce that the 50th Arctic Workshop that was rescheduled for 29 August – 1 September 2020 has been postponed until next year: 15 – 17 April 2021.

Our decision was made in response to concerns about international and domestic travel expressed by many of you, as well as the need to protect attendees in high-risk categories. Our decision was also guided by University of Colorado policies on COVID-19.

Founder of the Arctic Workshop, John T. Andrews has been a pioneer in advancing our understanding of Pleistocene ice sheets, their interaction with adjacent oceans, and their profound influence on the Earth system.

The workshop grew out of a series of informal annual meetings started in 1970 by John. The purpose of the early meetings was to give graduate students an opportunity to present their ongoing research, gain experience in public speaking, and obtain feedback from more senior researchers. Subsequent meetings retained this emphasis while simultaneously expanding the contributions of professional researchers.
