Dear colleagues [with apologies for multiple postings]
Abstracts are invited for presentation at the International Workshop on Glacial Isostatic Adjustment and Elastic Deformation, to be held September 5-7, 2017, at Grand Hotel Reykjavik, Iceland
The abstract deadline is Monday June 9, 2017. Abstracts must be submitted following the website instructions. Registrations will open in a few days.
International workshop on Glacial Isostatic Adjustment and Elastic Deformation
Website: http://www.polar.dtu.dk/english/workshop-on-glacial-isostatic-adjustment-and-elastic-deformation-2017
Past and present changes in the mass balance of the Earth's glaciers and ice caps induce present-day deformation of the solid Earth on a range of spatial scales, from the very local to global. Of principal interest are geodetic observations that validate, or may be assimilated into, models of glacial isostatic adjustment (GIA) and/or constrain models of present-day ice mass change through measurements of elastic rebound. Using geometric measurements alone, elastic and viscoelastic deformations cannot be separated without additional models or observations. The conference will focus on resolving these issues and work on dissemination of these measurements within the glaciological community.
Sessions (full details: http://www.polar.dtu.dk/english/workshop-on-glacial-isostatic-adjustment-and-elastic-deformation-2017/sessions)

Session 1.            Observations of present-day changes in glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets and the associated Earth deformation

Conveners:         Ingo Sasgen, Valentina Barletta, Bert Wouters

Session 2.            Measurement and Models of Elastic Rebound

Conveners:  Jeff Freymueller, Mirko Scheinert, Tonie van Dam

Session 3.            Glacial isostatic adjustment on a heterogeneous Earth

Conveners:  Wouter van der Wal , Natalya Gomez, Tom James

Session 4.            Reconciling models and observations of GIA

Conveners:  Pippa Whitehouse, Bas de Boer, Terry Wilson
Both Oral and Poster sessions will be held
Travel support
Thanks to generous funding from the SCAR SERCE programme, there are funds available to part-support a limited number of attendees. These will be awarded after the abstract submission deadline and preference will be given to early stage researchers and scientists from a SCAR nation with an emerging Antarctic programs. All supported attendees must present at the workshop. Applicants must indicate that they are requesting travel support at the time of abstract submission.
 Registration Fee and Accommodation

Registration fee: 170 Euro
Accommodation: A block reservation at Grand Hotel Reykjavik has been made. Information is available on the website.
Abstract submission deadline: June 9, 2017

Final detailed programme: June 30, 2017

Application deadline for early career scientists travel support: July 1st, 2017

Registration deadline: August 2nd, 2017
