Conference and Workshop

Climate Impacts on Glaciers and Biosphere in Fuego-Patagonia

July 14th to July 19th, Berlin

Deadline for abstract submission extended to April, 7th, 2017

The GABY-VASA project, a joint project of University of Magallanes (Punta Arenas), the Instituto Antártico Chileno (INACH, Chile), and in Germany the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and RWTH Aachen University on dendrochronology, climatology and glaciology in Southern Patagonia and the Cordillera Darwin is pleased to invite you to a conference and workshop to Berlin from 14th to 19th July 2017.

The official program will start with a reception on Friday, July 14th in the evening and follow-up get-together and organized visiting program in Berlin and its surrounding on the weekend July 15th/16th, 2017. We will show you some ‘real’ Berlin sites, visit the famous Telegrafenberg in Potsdam with its world-renowned locations for science and show you locations of recent glacial history in the area.

On Monday, 17th and Tuesday, 18th July, 2017, an open science meeting will be held, open to everybody, with potentially sessions on

  • dendrochronology
  • dendro-ecology,
  • climate variability and climate history
  • climate change
  • biological responses to climate forcing
  • glaciology, glacier change
  • glacio-isotasy and related topics in earth sciences

as well as other related topics.

The regional focus will be Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego and adjacent islands, the sub-Antarctic islands and the Antarctic Peninsula. There will be ample possibilities to discuss contributions and to elaborate on open scientific issues as well as new project ideas.

There is no conference fee but you must be prepared to individually cover all of your travel, lodging and catering expenses.

Participants from outside the GABY-VASA project are asked for a contribution of 25 EUR for the events of the get-together on Friday night (July 14th) and on the weekend of July 15th and 16th, 2017. In this case you are asked to pay your contribution cash, on-site.

On Wednesday, July 19th, 2017, there will be an internal workshop of the GABY-VASA group with participants from Chile and Germany.

For abstract submission and registration to the workshop please use the linked PDF document and send it as an attachment to Christoph Schneider. If you wish to present either a poster or an oral contribution during the open science meeting please also submit the title including the list of presenting/first author and co-authors accompanied by an abstract with no more than 250 words as a MS Word or PDF document. We prefer you use the prepared PDF formsheet for submitting your abstract.

We are looking forward to meeting you at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in July 2017.
