Save the date: WAIS Workshop 2019 - October 16-18, 2019
The 2019 WAIS Workshop is scheduled for October 16-18, 2019, at the newly remodeled Camp Cedar Glen near Julian, California. This NSF- and NASA-sponsored meeting hosts transdisciplinary and societally critical science focused on marine ice-sheet and adjacent earth systems, with particular emphasis on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Similar to past years, registration and abstraction submission will open in early July and the abstract deadline will be in August. The WAIS Workshop will immediately follow the 2019 Interdisciplinary Antarctic Earth Sciences meeting from October 13-15, also at Camp Cedar Glen.
The meeting will follow a similar format as past meetings with a single session style and panel discussions following each scientific program session. This year we will be adding new features to the WAIS Workshop to increase accessibility for the wider community and to continue and push forward our community’s ongoing discussions surrounding diversity, inclusion, and retention. More details on these programs will be announced along with session themes, and registration, travel support, and abstract deadlines in the coming months.
We want to encourage the participation of graduate students and early career scientists, as well as scientists in fields relevant to West Antarctic Ice Sheet system, such as biologists, atmospheric scientists, computer scientists, and engineers. Hope to see you all in October in sunny Southern California!
