WAIS Workshop - abstract deadline extended to August 25

Betsy Sheffield
Call for abstracts for
the 24th Annual WAIS Workshop
October 8-11, 2017
Camp Casey Conference Center 
Coupeville, WA, USA

The 24th Annual West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Workshop is just around the corner, October 8-11, followed by the Antarctic Earth Science Meeting, October 11-13, both at the remarkable Camp Casey in Washington State.

Please consider attending the WAIS meeting, for yourself, your students, your colleagues. WAIS is an outstanding venue for those interested in multi-disciplinary study of the Antarctic ice sheet and its interaction with the atmosphere and ocean. It is also a widely-appreciated venue for early-career and students to attend and present new work. The 'recent' paleoclimate and sedimentary indications of change in the ice sheet are also welcome here, as are ice core paleoclimate studies.

We will set the final topics based on the abstracts we receive; however, it is clear that there has been considerable activity in the Antarctic Peninsula over the past year and many significant research efforts in the coming few years. 
We have room for 100 people or more this year -- and the registration fee is always low -- come out and enjoy the most collegial meeting of the year. 

REVISED Abstract deadline: August 25
Student support request deadline: August 18

Registration fees (registration opening soon):
$300 for professionals, including post-docs
$225 for active students (pre-PhD)
