It's our pleasure to announce that the 2020 WAIS Workshop will take place October 5-8, 2020, at the Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling, VA, USA. Like past years, this workshop will focus on marine ice-sheet and adjacent earth systems, with an emphasis on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. More information about the 2020 WAIS Workshop will be available spring 2020 at the link above.
UArctic Congress 2020 will be hosted by all UArctic higher education members in Iceland. The event is part of Iceland’s chairmanship of the Arctic Council and organized in conjunction with the Arctic Circle Assembly.
The themes of the Congress follow those of the Icelandic chairmanship's priorities:
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.
Ice cores provide information about past climate and environmental conditions as well as direct records of the composition of the atmosphere on timescales from decades to hundreds of millennia. With the pioneering work of Hans Oeschger of University of Bern on carbon dioxide in polar ice cores, a long tradition of ice core research in Switzerland began. Less known is that Hans Oeschger also initiated a high-alpine drilling project on Colle Gnifetti in Switzerland in the 1970s.
