The following is a list of upcoming events that may be of interest to the ice coring and glaciological community. You can also view a listing of past events.
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 13th International Conference on Paleoceanography in Sydney, Australia, 2 – 6 September 2019: the first ICP held under the Southern Cross.
The conference will be hosted at the University of New South Wales (UNSW). UNSW is located close to one of the most iconic beaches in Australia and a short bus ride away from Sydney's central business district.
Following the traditional ICP format, the conference will be organised around invited plenary oral presentations as well as large and vibrant poster sessions. Networking will be at the centre of the ICP, with numerous social events including the Paleomusicology concert and conference dinner.
The lively city of Sydney has a rich cultural heritage and offers adventure and entertainment for all ages and tastes. Breathtaking coastal national parks, the Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley, known for Australia’s finest wines, are only a daytrip away.
A range of existing pre- and post- Conference field trips will be organised in New South Wales, New Zealand and potentially the Great Barrier Reef. For those with time for exploring, Sydney is the gateway to iconic travel locations including the Great Barrier Reef, Uluru, and Kakadu National Park.
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.

The Geological Society of America (GSA) will hold its 130th Annual Meeting from 22-25 September 2019 in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
GSA is a global professional society with a growing membership of more than 26,000 individuals in 115 countries. GSA provides access to elements that are essential to the professional growth of earth scientists at all levels of expertise and from all sectors: academic, government, business, and industry. The Society unites thousands of earth scientists from every corner of the globe in a common purpose to study the mysteries of our planet (and beyond) and share scientific findings.
The ICAT PhD school (2 ECTS) is aimed at PhD students and junior postdocs who conduct ice core analysis or are users of ice core data (glaciologists, oceanographers, climate modelers, earth scientists).
ICAT aims to educate a new generation of ice core researchers and foster a collaborative environment for future glaciological projects.
This course will educate young scientists regarding new methods developed for the analysis of ice cores with regard to climate research, with dedicated theoretical and laboratory exercise sessions.
Ice drills are crucial to access ice for climate research and other studies of the water and basal conditions under glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets. The ice related research especially related to understand the past and present climate will improve our ability to predict the impacts under future climate changes. New techniques are rapidly evolving within ice drills and include rapid access drills, replicate drilling and thermal and hot water drilling. This symposium presents a timely opportunity to show recent advances in our knowledge and technological capabilities in ice drilling technology. In addition, the symposium will include the ice drill related themes like ice core handling, borehole logging and ice camp logistics.
As the largest Earth and space science gathering in the world, the Fall Meeting places you in the center of a global community of scientists drawn from myriad fields of study whose work protects the health and welfare of people worldwide, spurs innovation, and informs decisions that are critical to the sustainability of the Earth. You will connect with leading thinkers, learn about pioneering research and emerging trends, and use your voice to help drive science’s positive impact on the world.
More information will be announced in 2019. Please follow the link for up-to-date information.
