Practical information for participants in AntClim21's June workshop on CMIP6* 21st century projections and predictions for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.
Dates: 26-28 June 2019, British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge UK.
The latest agenda can be found here (updated 25th June 2019).
Oral and poster presentations
Poster presenters are expected to give a 2-minute oral introduction (max 2-slides) to their posters during the first half hour of the poster session. Please provide these slides in advance if possible to aid quick changeovers. The poster display boards are 85cm in width and 175cm in height. An A0 portrait size is ideal.

The aim of this workshop is to help ensure that the Antarctic and Southern Ocean climate science communities make a significant contribution to the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6). Contributions on model-observation comparisons and evaluation of CMIP6 21st century predictions and projections from decadal to century timescales are encouraged. However, relevant non-CMIP6 simulations, such as Antarctic CORDEX, are also welcomed. In addition, a session dedicated to science-policy discussion is planned.
The format will be in the style of a small conference, with participants giving oral and poster presentations on their research.
The workshop is supported by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) as part of the AntClim21 Scientific Research Programme (see https://www.scar.org/antclim21/). ECR travel support has also been provided by CliC (http://www.climate-cryosphere.org/). The British Antarctic Survey (NERC) have provided support to host the event.
