This year's WAIS workshop will be held in Southern California at the newly remodeled Camp Cedar Glen. Sponsored by NSF and NASA, the workshop will focus on marine ice-sheet and adjacent earth systems, with particular emphasis on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The workshop will follow the Antarctic Earth Sciences meeting also held at Camp Julian, October 13-15.
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.
