Meeting of Northwest Glaciologists 13-14 Oct 2017
|Date||Friday and Saturday, October 13-14, 2017 from 9am to 5pm|
University of British Columbia, Department of Earth Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences
We anticipate that the meeting will follow the format of previous years. As usual for NWG, we have no requirements for advance abstracts. However, due to the anticipated large number of participants, we do ask that you let us know in advance
The organizers will use that information to get the first session started at 9 AM. The ongoing schedule is usually then a work in progress.
The time available for each speaker will depend on the number who want to speak. However, due to the anticipated large number of participants, we ask that you be prepared to give your presentation in about 15 minutes maximum including discussion. If we have a very large number of speakers, we may need to go beyond 5 PM, or shorten the time slots.
We can also accommodate posters if you would like to bring one. Please indicate that you would like to do so when you email to let us know that you are coming.
|Icebreaker||A dinner and social gathering will take place on Friday evening in ESB atrium (ground floor).|
