Antarctic Climate Change in the 21st Century (AntClim21)

logo AntClim21 workshopPractical information for participants in AntClim21's June workshop on CMIP6* 21st century projections and predictions for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

Dates: 26-28 June 2019, British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge UK.

The latest agenda can be found here (updated 24th May 2019). Updates will follow closer to the workshop dates.

Registration

Registration has now closed.  However, there is still an opportunity to view the talks remotely. To register for this and find out further details please contact Amanda Wynne (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Talks and poster presentations

Please note the boards for poster display are 85cm width, 175cm height. An A0 size poster fits vertically on the poster board. 

To help smooth running of the sessions, speakers are encouraged to send their talks at least the day before their presentation (please send by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). Note also that we will be using a 16:9 aspect ratio screen. Be aware also that some participants will be joining the oral sessions remotely by invite on Zoom.

Accommodation

For accommodation, note that Cambridge University graduation will be taking place during our workshop and accommodation will be expensive and difficult to find if you leave it late - so our advice is to book accommodation early. We are in contact with a range of college and other providers, so please do ask if you would like advice. For general advice on travel to BAS see https://www.bas.ac.uk/about/contact-bas/travel-to-bas-cambridge/

Please also contact Amanda if you have questions or require assistance relating to other matters.

Background

The aim of this workshop is to help ensure that the Antarctic and Southern Ocean climate science communities make a significant contribution to the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6). Contributions on model-observation comparisons and evaluation of CMIP6 21st century predictions and projections from decadal to century timescales are encouraged. However, relevant non-CMIP6 simulations, such as Antarctic CORDEX, are also welcomed. In addition, a session dedicated to science-policy discussion is planned.

The format will be in the style of a small conference, with participants giving oral and poster presentations on their research.
