Polar and Alpine Events Calendar
To Wednesday 15 September 2021
We’re happy to announce this year’s joint PALSEA-SERCE meeting scheduled for September 13-15, 2021, which will be an online and in-person hybrid meeting: participants can attend via Zoom or in-person at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (New York). The meeting serves to bring the paleo sea-level community together with a particular focus on better understanding the physical processes that drive ice sheet collapse and solid earth deformation.
We are attempting a hybrid format since vaccinations are progressing quickly in some parts of the world; however, we also plan to keep the meeting fully open and engaging for participants who wish/need to join us remotely (which includes some of the organizing committee). Since regulations are ever changing we will stay flexible and update participants about event changes as soon as they occur.
For the meeting we seek contributions related to solid Earth deformation and ice sheet changes in the geologic past. We are particularly interested in abstracts related to better understanding the time- and space- varying rheological nature of the mantle, which might come from GIA, mineral physics, geodesy, or geodynamics, as well as contributions related to past ice sheet behaviour and terrestrial water storage, which might come from ice sheet modeling, glaciology, or hydrology.
The meeting will consist of oral and poster presentations. Additionally, we will dedicate time to discussing benchmarking and intercomparison efforts in the GIA community as well as best practices for code and model output sharing.

Registration and abstract submission for this meeting are now open and will close July 15th: LINK
Abstract selection and a full agenda will be announced on August 1st to allow sufficient time to arrange travel for those who plan to do so. Please also register if you only plan to attend the virtual meeting (whether you plan to present or not). We are still finalizing the registration fee but it will likely be on the order of $50 (to cover food and some transportation) and will only apply to in-person participants. More information to follow.
We particularly encourage participation of early career researchers (ECR) and researchers who join us from developing countries (DC). ECR and DC researchers who join us in person and submit an abstract will be considered for financial support to contribute to expenses related to travel, accommodation, and registration.
We’re looking forward to welcoming many of you this fall, whether it is in person or remotely! Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us should you have any questions or concerns.
