Joint Model-data workshop for the Late Pleistocene evolution of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets
LGGE, Grenoble, May 22-24, 2014
1) Bring together the field and modelling communities working on the Antarctic and/or Greenland ice sheets
2) Clarify key uncertainties for the field data and modelling communities
3) Compare latest model results to data and geological/glaciological inferences
4) Identify key model deficiencies wrt data
5) Identify priorities for new data
6) Consider what can be done to make paleo records and model output more accessible to various users
7) Consider surprises in the model results and whether they are refuted by data
Call for abstracts: will go out Jan 9
application for travel support: extended to Feb 10/2014
Abstract submission and registration application deadline: extended to Feb 10/2014
Letter of acceptance: prior to Feb 14/2014

Strong emphasis on adequate discussion time.
Workshop will be limited to 60 participants.
Most oral presentations will be invited reviews. Emphasis on posters follows from an emphasis on interaction/discussion.
Model results will be circulated to participants before the workshop to further facilitate discussion.
Draft workshop timetable/agenda
The simplest way for Grenoble is to Land in Lyon, with an hourly shuttle (bus from 5:30am to 00:30am on week days) . The trip is one hour long. Lyon Airport Shuttle tickets/info.
You also have shuttle between Geneve and Grenoble (5 every day, the travel last 2 hours). Geneva shuttle info.
Leaving from Chamonix, the closest airport is Geneva (3 regular bus every day, it is a 2 hour trip. info, timetable.
From Chamonix to take a train (or a bus and and a train (at least), then a bus, is at least a 4 hours travel (via Annecy or Chambery)
