24th Alpine Glaciology Meeting in virtual Milan, Call for Abstracts
Since the Alpine Glaciology Meeting had to be cancelled due to pandemic reasons in 2020, we now joined forces to organise a virtual AGM 2021 by Italy and Germany. The AGM 2021 will be fully virtual, because the situation at the moment does not allow us to plan on a physical gathering, neither South nor North of the Alps. Therefore, we would like to invite all interested people in joining us for two days of scientific exchange on 25 and 26 March 2021.
The meeting aims on presenting and discussing recent advances in the investigation of mountain glaciers in their environment, no matter in which region of the world. Young scientists and students are encouraged to present their work in a very informal and friendly atmosphere. But also the older generation is highly welcome to contribute with their findings to a successful meeting. We maintain the usual structure of oral sessions, but posters are also welcome within a special “virtual poster room”. The oral presentations are expected to take 15 Minutes followed by 5 Minutes of questions and discussion. For the posters, a short five-minute presentation is planned with a follow-up discussion. In order to allow enough time to review the abstracts and produce a meeting schedule and programme, we ask to submit abstracts until 28 February 2021 to the following email: AGM24.firstname.lastname@example.org
The final program will be circulated around the 10th of March, including the information about meeting access and poster room. If there are any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact the organisation committee:
