The oral sessions and poster sessions will be held in Davis Hall on the University at Buffalo North Campus. The sessions will start on Thursday morning and are expected to end on Saturday morning.

The number and types of sessions will be determined after the abstract deadline.


“Polar Climate and Sea Level: Past, Present & Future” Under this umbrella theme will be sub-themes on topics ranging from The Greenland Ice Sheet to Hazards of Polar Change to the Climate History of Baffin Bay.

Please consider contributing to the optional Workshop theme by tying your presentation to Polar Climate and Sea Level: Past, Present & Future.


The program will be organized in sessions developed from the abstracts submitted for presentation as well as special sessions promoted by attendees. It is anticipated that there will be sessions on the “Greenland Ice Sheet” and “Baffin Bay Paleoclimatology”

Special Sessions?

The Workshop encourages attendees to propose special sessions and asks that they gather at least several collaborators and colleagues to join them. Please email us with your ideas.
