Map and Directions

The WAIS Workshop is an annual event gathering climate scientists to discuss recent research on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The 2013 Workshop will be held near Washington, DC, at the Algonkian Regional Park Conference Center in Sterling, Virginia. This multidisciplinary Earth system science workshop will focus on the distinctive glaciological, geological, oceanographic, and climatic aspects of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, though research in other areas that illuminate these glaciological processes are welcome.

Abstract deadline is August 16.

Registration deadline is September 6.

Please download this file for information on submitting an abstract.

The registration fee for all participants includes all meals on Monday and Tuesday and breakfast on Wednesday. Those paying $200 will be housed at the Algonkian in shared living quarters. Spaces are limited at the Algonkian and once they are gone, only a hotel option will remain. Those paying $100 and staying off-site must make their own lodging arrangements and pay for it themselves. We have reserved a block of rooms at Marriott Courtyard Dulles Town Center at a rate of $139 per night. Reserve there by calling the reservation number of 1-888-236-2427 and mention room block name "WAIS;" reserve by 9/5/13 for the special rate. Transportation to and from the hotel is not provided in the workshop registration fee, although it is likely there will be a number of people with cars.

The meeting opens with a Sunday night icebreaker and pizza dinner. Presentations begin Monday morning, September 30. Sessions are organized by topic, with keynote speakers for some sessions, followed by contributed talks and concluding with a panel discussion by the speakers. Poster session(s) will be held separately. The meeting adjourns before lunch on Wednesday, October 2 to allow for afternoon departures.

Members of the WAIS Steering Committee should plan on arriving by 4pm on Sunday for a planning meeting.

Check in time at the Algonkian is 4pm.

A more detailed agenda will be released after we have organized the submitted abstracts.
