The conference aims to bring together scientists from many disciplines, all interested in quantifying Earth (surface) processes by innovative techniques: seismologists, geophysicists, glaciologists, hydrologists, climatologists and geomorphologists.

The 74nd Eastern Snow Conference (ESC) will be held at University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada. The scientific program is open to sessions on theoretical, experimental, and operational studies of snow, ice, and winter hydrology. This year's general theme is "Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere".
The Arctic is home to approximately four million people, counting numerous ethnicities among its inhabitants. More than ten percent of the total population living in the Arctic is Indigenous peoples. In modern times, rapid and extensive changes has brought opportunities but also challenges to peoples and places in the north, including climate change, industrial extraction, pollution, globalization, migration, food and water insecurity, and widening socio-economic gaps.
The FRISP meeting is for scientists working on ice shelf processes meeting in an informal setting and exchanging ideas, results and field plans. As always, we welcome presentations on all aspects of ice shelf research, including, but not limited to:
The 2nd Asian Conference on Permafrost (ACOP2017) will be hosted by the International Permafrost Association (IPA) and covers all aspects of frozen ground – both permafrost and seasonal frost – and its related natural and technological topics. The proposed sessions are as listed below:
Depths and Surfaces: Understanding the Antarctic Region through the Humanities and Social Sciences
Wed, 07/05/2017 to Fri, 07/07/2017
University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia
Antarctica rarely makes it onto the map of the humanities and social sciences. While artists have produced responses to the continent for centuries, non-scientific researchers have been reluctant to venture intellectually into the far southern latitudes. The continent’s lack of an indigenous or permanent human population, together with a popular Antarctic exceptionalism which frames the continent as immune to the political, social and economic forces that affect the rest of the globe, has made it seem off-limits to analysis outside of a scientific framework.
Sea level change is already impacting coastal communities globally and will continue to do so. To meet urgent societal needs for useful information on sea level, the World Climate Research Program (WCRP) has established the theme “Regional Sea-Level Change and Coastal Impacts”, as one of its cross-cutting “Grand Challenge” (GC) science questions.
The main goal of the Joint Summer School 2017 is to provide participants with innovative practical and methodological skills to characterise complex terrain and objects using close-, near range and remote sensing techniques. The Summer School will be the second edition after a successful first version in 2015.
Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
Wed, 08/09/2017 to Sat, 08/12/2017
Increasing focus on the Arctic region due to climate change and natural resources such as oil and minerals has made Greenland a hot topic recently and it is of course an excellent place to meet and discuss polar and alpine microbiology.
The theme of PAM 2017 will be: Coming in from the Cold: Microbial Roles in the Warming Cryosphere
