ISSM Workshop 2016
The next ISSM 2016 workshop will take place at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (UC San Diego), in La Jolla, California, USA. June 21st to 23rd.
The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in collaboration with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of California at Irvine will host the 2016 Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM) Workshop. The workshop will take place at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography campus for three days, June 21st-23rd. It will be sponsored by Pr Helen Fricker who graciously offered to host the workshop.
Interactive sessions will be offered for beginners/advanced users and developers interested in learning how to use ISSM. Updates to ISSM since the 2014 workshop, including user-requested features will be presented. Specific focus will be on tutorials that allow users to make use of altimetry data, and simulate the evolution of surface topography on ice shelves or over grounded ice. Data assimilation will also be at the core of several tutorials, relying on the use of inverse methods in particular. Participants will be invited to showcase their work during an open poster session, and science talks will be organized around relevant topics.

In addition, we have setup a different webpage for the Workshop Fee payment:Workshop Fee
For this year's workshop, we are asking participants to bring there own laptops, and if possible to install ISSM (we now have binaries that can be downloaded directly) before arriving to the workshop. In case this is not feasible, a small number of laptops will be made available on site. If needed, please let us know ahead of time.
You will also find the agenda and practical information here:
We hope the workshop will generate fruitful interactions between our team, the growing community of ISSM users, and the broader cryosphere community.
Thank you for your participation!
