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.

Environmental Changes in Polar Regions: New Problems - New Solutions
Thu, 10/15/2020 to Sat, 10/17/2020
The Faculty of Earth Sciences and Spatial Management, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń and the Polar Research Center in cooperation with The Committee on Polar Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Polish Polar Consortium jointly organise the 38th International Polar Symposium.
Due to the current COVID-19 virus situation and the strong uncertainty of its worldwide development the local organizing committee has decided to postpone the 3rd IPICS Open Science Conference "Ice Core Science at the three Poles" scheduled for 18-23 October 2020 in Crans-Montana, Switzerland until October next year.
This workshop aims to build on a series of successful workshops by the IICWG Data Assimilation Working Group to advance international capabilities for sea ice prediction on timescales from hours to a season. The focus of the workshop is to discuss cross-cutting issues in sea ice modelling and assimilation and how deficiencies of current systems can be more efficiently diagnosed and addressed.
General topics considered appropriate for this workshop include:
In recent decades we have seen major changes in Arctic Ocean circulation, salinity, and temperature and associated declines in sea ice coverage and thickness. There is evidence of connections of these changes with climate indices, and the changes arguably affect climate by altering the radiative heat balance at high latitudes, impacting the strength of the global overturning circulation, and influencing the interaction between the ocean and Greenland ice sheet.
This workshop aims at assessing the latest advancement in the use of EO technology for Polar science, exploring the main challenges and opportunities for the coming decade and consulting with the community to contribute to define a common scientific agenda for the future.
