Virtual PALSEA-SERCE workshop
From Tuesday 15 September 2020 -  08:00
To Wednesday 16 September 2020 - 17:00

Dear PALSEA Community,

As announced earlier, following the many challenges posed by the current COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee has decided to postpone the PALSEA-SERCE 2020 workshop to autumn 2021. However, to continue fostering scientific exchanges in the sea level and ice sheet community in these difficult times, the organizers have decided to set up a virtual meeting, named PALSEA Express, for the dates of September 15th and 16th, 2020. Each day will consist of three hours, divided between invited talks (20-25 minutes each plus question time) and virtual poster presentations.  The invited speakers include Ewan Gowan, Christine Batchelor, Ben Horton, Natalya Gomez, Julia Gottschalk, Rob DeConto, Eric Wolff, and Blake Dyer.  The titles of their talks can be found HERE.

Meeting times (note the minor time change for September 15th)

September 15th, 11.00 AM UTC - 02.00 PM UTC Find meeting time in your timezone HERE

September 16th, 04.00 PM UTC - 07:00 PM UTC Find meeting time in your timezone HERE

Virtual poster abstract submission

During the two-day meeting, we will reserve time slots for virtual posters.

Abstract submission is now online and will close August 15th, 2020.

You can submit your abstract through this form.

PLEASE NOTE: each abstract will be reviewed by the organizing committee. As the virtual meeting time is limited, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all abstracts. Priority will be given to Early Career Researchers and researchers from low GDP countries.


If you want to participate without submitting an abstract, please register here to receive the zoom link.

You don’t need to register if you’re submitting an abstract.

We hope to see many of you online in September. 


Jacky, Alex, Tasha, Jeremy, and Ale
