Dear colleagues,
On the behalf of the SCAR scientific research program INSTANT scientific committee, it is our pleasure to present the 2nd circular for the INSTANT Conference 2023 - "Instabilities and Thresholds in Antarctica":
INSTANT Conference 2023 will take place on September 11-14, in Trieste (Italy).
The priority focus of the conference will be on improving knowledge of the key rate- determining processes, instabilities and potential irreversibilities that affect the mass change of the Antarctic Ice Sheet and its contribution to past, present and future global sea-level.  We invite leading and emerging experts, as well as early career researchers (ECRs), from modellers to observationalists, to present and discuss the state of the science and critical knowledge gaps. We also invite perspectives from the stakeholder and practitioner communities, and will discuss best practices in communication and engagement.
Conference format: morning plenaries and afternoon workshops, pre and post conference excursions and activities; pre-post conference side meetings.
Registration and Abstract submission are now open.
Deadline for submission is April 3.
Application for travel grants for ECRs will open soon.
Accomodation: at this time of the year, Trieste is highly touristic. We STRONGLY advise you to book your accommodation as soon as possible.
