Oral presentations

Talks should be no longer than 15 minutes (including discussion and speaker change). Following the informal character of previous meetings a listing of the specific presentations and their dates/times will be compiled on 17 October in the morning, i.e., it will not be available prior to the meeting. If you have not already done so, please let us know if you intend to give a talk so that we have a rough idea of how many talks to expect. Poster presentations are also welcome.


The meeting will be held in the Geophysical Institute (Elvey Building) at UAF (campus map here).


We will try to host participants at our homes as much as possible - in particular, but not exclusively, students. Please let us know as soon as possible if you wish to do so. Please send any requests to Martin Truffer.
