This international conference is organized under the general theme “Moving plates and melting icecaps - Processes and forcing factors in geology” to celebrate the centenary of the first paper on the concept of moving continents published by Alfred Wegener (Wegener 1912) who died at the age of 50 during an expedition in Greenland.
Two sessions of particular interest for the glaciological community are centered around the contribution of Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets to past and future sea-level change:
Session 1. Antarctica's contribution to past and future sea-level change.
Session 2. Greenland's contribution to past and future sea-level change.
