IGS Buffalo symposium, ‘Timescales, processes and glacier dynamics'

Magnus Magnusson

Dear all


Just an update on some developments for the International Symposium on ‘Timescales, processes and glacier dynamics' to be held 3–8 June 2018, in Buffalo, NY, USA!.


We have been able to negotiate some extensions on deadlines for booking accommodations. The deadlines for when we have to release the rooms are as follows.


Hilton Garden Inn April 13th

The Hotel Lafayette – April 8th

The Holiday Inn Express – May 3rd, 2018

Embassy Suites – May 3rd


The symposium venue is the Hotel Lafayette so presumably it will be popular


Financial support is available for US based students or recent graduates (after 2012). Information on website https://www.igsoc.org/symposia/2018/buffalo/

True to tradition, the oral and poster sessions will be interlaced with plenty of exciting activities to bring the participants together.


Special highlights include:

·         a mid-symposium trip to the Niagara Falls,

·         a pre-dinner tour exploring Buffalo’s hottest microbreweries,

·         a banquet dinner at Hotel Henry, an iconic architectural landmark of Buffalo and

·         a post-symposium glacial geology and landscape excursion to visit western New York’s world-famous drumlin fields and wineries.

·         the presentation of the Richardson Medal to Julie Palais

·         a special display dedicated to University of Buffalo's past excellence in ice core science with Chet Langway and the world’s largest ice core library


The symposium will also feature a lecture presented by Sebastian Copeland, the award-winning photographer, adventurer and environmental activist, and the author of 'Arctica: The Vanishing North'.

Important information:
