The ISSM 2014 workshop took place on 2-4 June 2014, at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research at the University of Bergen, Bergen, Norway
The ISSM 2014 workshop was a great success! Many thanks to the participants and to our hosts at The Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research at the University of Bergen. A summary of the workshop has been published in the November 11th 2014, issue of EOS.
The Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research at the University of Bergen in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory proudly hosted the 2014 Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM) Workshop. The workshop took place at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research at the University of Bergen, located in Bergen, Norway, from Monday, June 2nd to Wednesday, June 4th, following the IGS conference in Chamonix.
Interactive sessions were offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since the 2012 workshop, including user-requested features (i.e. a new Python port, support for new OS/Platforms, etc) were presented. Also, participants were invited to showcase their work during an open poster session.
Here are some useful links for information on the workshop:
CliC (Climate and Cryosphere) to help students or early-career scholars attend the workshop. Application for travel support is now closed. In addition, there was no fee for participation in the workshop.
We are happy to report that the workshop generated fruitful interactions between our team, the growing community of ISSM users, and the broader cryosphere community.
