Latest Research

The abstract deadline is 22 February. You can share your latest ideas and get valuable feedback

Unlike most meetings, you can present your very latest research. The abstract deadline is only four weeks before the Workshop! So you'll hear about entirely new studies as well as updates since AGU, GSA, and other meetings.

Friendly Community

Mingle with friendly first-time and veteran participants in a nice location

Attendees like the Workshop so much they return again and again. And relaxed, informal interaction is fostered by the Workshop's modest size, high proportion of students, shared meals, and single-track schedule.
