Dear Arctic Workshop friends,

Given the evolving circumstances around COVID-19 in the United States and globally, we have postponed the Arctic Workshop originally scheduled for April. It will now take place Aug. 29 through Sept.1, 2020. This decision is in response to concerns related to potential international travel restrictions for many of our attendees.

We hope you will be able to attend the postponed meeting, and will offer full registration refunds to those who cannot attend in August/September. Please contact ArcticWS [at] colorado.edu if you would like your registration refunded.

We apologize for the difficulties presented to your planning for this meeting, and appreciate your understanding.

The planned schedule for the postponed conference is:

  • Icebreaker: evening of Saturday, Aug. 29
  • Dinner celebrating John Andrews: evening of Sunday, Aug. 30
  • Sessions: morning of Sunday, Aug. 30 through noon on Tuesday, Sept. 1

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.
