Dear all,

"Microdynamics of Ice (Micro-DICE)" is a Research Network Programme, funded for 5 years by the European Research Foundation. The programme funds conferences, sessions at conferences (like next EGU-meeting in Vienna) and especially workshops and short- and exchange visits.

Please check http://microdice.eu to see calls for applications to fund workshops (about 8000 € per workshop) and travel grants, especially for students and young researchers. Next deadline is end of February, but calls will be repeated every few months.

Send an email to [hidden email] if you want to be on the email list to keep informed of the latest activities.

The aim of Micro-DICE is to advance our knowledge of the dynamic behaviour of ice, based on the philosophy that:
  • The predictive value of (geophysical) models of ice behaviour under changing conditions relies on a correct description of ice properties.
  • Grain-scale processes (microstructure) strongly influence the properties of ice, and hence,
  • better understanding of dynamic grain-scale processes in ice is needed
Upcoming activities:
4 April: Session CR1.30 "Ice and its microstructure: commonalities and differences" at the EGU-Meeting, Vienna, Austria
8-11 May: Workshop on "Microdynamic Modelling of Ice and related materials", Glasgow, UK
7-9 November: Conference on "Ice deformation: from the model material to ice in natural environments", Grenoble, France

Please pass this information on to anyone who may be interested.

Many thanks, Paul Bons
