This meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers and permafrost in all regions of the world. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young researchers are especially encouraged to present their work in progress!
There is no registration fee to the meeting, but we recommend to book your accommodation in advance, since Innsbruck is a beloved tourist destination this time of year.
The meeting will be held in the Aula of the main building of the University of Innsbruck, in close vicinity of the town center.
ACI’s 14th Arctic Shipping Summit will provide insight into the future of an market that is constantly developing and advancing: number of vessels, both cargo ships and cruise ships, operating in the Arctic due to sea routes opening further and the expansion of Arctic mining and extraction projects means that the Arctic has never played a more crucial role in global operations.
New Thinking about Local Agriculture in the Circumpolar Arctic - Best Practices, Innovations, and Perspectives
Wed, 03/13/2019 to Fri, 03/15/2019
Arctic Centre, University of Lapland, Rovaniemi, Finland
The conference is the tenth in line of international conferences organized within the framework of CAA (Circumpolar Agriculture Association), aimed at people involved in northern agriculture such as researchers, practitioners, administrators, managers, policy-makers and students. The conference will address a bottom-up approach and new thinking of local agriculture, food production and rural development in the northern areas. The goal is to open up and discuss versatile meanings of circumpolar agriculture and call for new thinking to address its topical challenges and opportunities.
Linking Marine Science Disciplines to Enhance Our Understanding of Polar Oceans
Sat, 03/16/2019 to Sun, 03/17/2019
The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science provides early career scientists with a unique opportunity to further enhance their Gordon Conference experience. The goal of this conference is to bring together graduate students and postdocs within all fields of polar marine science, including marine biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and technology to discuss interdisciplinary links and provide a basis for future collaborations.
The workshop is jointly organized by the WCRP Working Group on Coupled Modelling (WGCM) CMIP Panel and the European Commission Horizon 2020 project PRIMAVERA (PRocess-based climate sIMulation: AdVances in high-resolution modelling and European climate Risk Assessment) and EUCP (European Climate Prediction system).
Following the format of the WCRP CMIP5 model analysis workshop held in 2012, the workshop focus will be on:
Waterhackweek is a 5-day hackweek to be held at the University of Washington in partnership with the University of Washington eScience Institute. Participants will learn about open source technologies used to analyze water-related datasets. Mornings will consist of interactive lectures, and afternoon sessions will involve facilitated exploration of datasets and hands-on software development. Successful applicants will pay a $100 registration fee and be expected to cover lodging, travel expenses and some meals. Financial support may be available based on need.
The symposium will be held at Stanford University in Stanford, California, USA on 8 –12 July 2019. The main symposium will take place from Tuesday morning, 9 July, until the afternoon of Friday 12 July. On Monday 8 July there will be a presymposium short-course on ice penetrating radar science and engineering for early-career researchers. Also on Monday 8 July, side meetings will also be scheduled for collaborative radar sounding projects including BedMap3 and the SCAR AntArchitecture project.
A training school focused on exploring glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) modelling will be held from 26-30 August 2019 at Lantmäteriet, Gävle, Sweden. The program will include lectures and practical exercises aimed at investigating the interactions between solid Earth deformation, ice mass change, and associated sea-level and geoid variations.
An International Symposium on Mitigation Measures against Snow Avalanches and Other Rapid Gravity Mass Flows will be held in Siglufjörður, N-Iceland, by the Association of Chartered Engineers in Iceland (VFI).
Abstract submission deadline: 31st October 2018. Registration deadline: 15th December 2018
