Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since the 2014 workshop, including user-requested features will be presented. Specific focus will be on tutorials that allow
users to make use of altimetry data, and simulate the evolution of surface elevations on ice shelves or over grounded ice. Data assimilation will also be at the core of several tutorials, relying on the use of inverse methods in particular. Participants will
be invited to showcase their work during an open poster session, and science talks will be organized around relevant topics.
