FRISP is an annual meeting to share research related to ice shelves, and their interactions with the ice sheet, ocean, and atmosphere. It is an Expert Group of the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR), and has organised regular meetings in Europe since 1984. FRISP is an appropriate meeting to present work in progress and discuss emerging research ideas, and is well-suited to early career researchers as well as senior scientists.
FRISP 2019 will begin on the evening of 15 September (Sunday) with an icebreaker and dinner, and will conclude with lunch on 18 September (Wednesday). Please aim to arrive in Oxford no later than 5pm on Sunday.
The conference will be followed by the annual meeting of the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration (ITGC) from Wednesday afternoon to Thursday evening. This meeting is intended for those already involved in the ITGC project; however, FRISP-only attendees are welcome to stay for the Wednesday afternoon sessions. Similarly, ITGC-only attendees who arrive early may attend the Wednesday morning sessions of FRISP. Since there will be a number of participants attending both conferences, we encourage you to register early and secure your spot.
