As a consequence of the ongoing events associated with the COVID-19 outbreak in Chile, we regret to inform you that the local organizing committee of the 3rd meeting of the Chilean Cryosphere Society has decided to postpone the meeting (from May 13-15). This decision is a result of recent guidelines posted by the Universidad de Concepción restricting meetings, and is taken in close coordination with the SoChiCri's organizing committee. The new date is October 7-9 2020 and we will keep the submission platform open from now throughout April. We fully understand if some of the participants decide to withdraw their participation from the meeting given this change and we ask that everyone who wants to do so, please send us an email (sochicri at gmail.com) to arrange the refund. For any other inquiry regardingvthe meeting, please email Alfonso Fernández at alfernandez at udec.cl.

This is a reminder of the 3rd Annual Chilean Cryosphere Society (SOCHICRI) meeting to be held in Concepción, Chile 7-9 October, 2020. SOCHICRI invites researchers, professionals and students from Chile and abroad to participate in the annual meeting for 2020. This will be organised by the Geography and Geophysics Departments of Concepción University in Chile.

The Chilean Cryosphere Society (SOCHICRI) is a non-profit scientific association that brings together national and international scientists and professionals who work on issues related to the cryosphere, the glacial and periglacial environment.

SOCHICRI brings together specialists from different disciplines from both the academic and private worlds who work in the study of the national, South American and Antarctic cryosphere.

SOCHICRI's objective is to maintain communication bridges between professionals and academics in the study of cryospheres; promote new studies; increase the dissemination of new knowledge and support civil society in understanding the national cryosphere.
