International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS) : First Open Science Conference 1-5 October 2012

Apologizes for possible cross-posting.
Dear Colleagues,

The organizing committee of the International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS) 2012 Open Science Conference is pleased to inform you that registration is officially open :

The conference will be held from October 1st to October 5th 2012, at the beautiful setting of the Belembra club, nearby Giens on the French Côte d'Azur.

The programme will include plenary sessions and poster sessions on the following topics :

- Glacial-interglacial climate dynamics during the last 1.5 million years
- Onset, characteristics and end of the last interglacial period
- Abrupt climate variability during the last glacial period and termination
- Climate forcings and variability during the last 2 ka
- Climate of the Holocene
- Ice dynamics
- Ice core age scales and synchronisation with other records
- New frontiers in ice core retrieval and analysis
- Interpreting ice core proxies
- Biogeochemical cycles

We expect of course many participants coming from the ice core community (polar and non-polar ice cores). But the meeting is more generally open to paleoclimate scientists working on marine records, continental records or climate modelling, as well as to glaciologists.

The setting of the Belembra club, with a private beach along the Mediterranean Sea and with all participants accommodated on site, should create an ideal atmosphere for informal discussions aside from the sessions.

Financial support is available on a competitive basis for researchers/students coming from developing/emerging countries.

Deadline for early-bird application is May 31st, 2012. Late registration extends to July 10th, 2012. Registration will be processed on a "first come, first served" basis, until we reach a total number of participants of ~250.

For more information and to apply for the conference, please go to our official website :

Looking forward to fruitful discussions with many of you in October !
