The APEX Fifth International Conference and Workshop will be held at the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) located in Longyearbyen, Svalbard.  The meeting includes a one-day boat excursion to Billefjorden to visit Kapp Ekholm and the Nordenskioldbreen glacier. The Conference and Workshop comprise three days with the main focus on the original APEX themes:

•    Cold extremes: Arctic marine and terrestrial glacial maxima; sea level minima and sea-ice maxima; Arctic Ocean palaeoceanography; ice shelf extent; past atmospheric circulation
•    Warm extremes: interglacial and interstadial environments; sea level maxima; sea-ice minima; Arctic Ocean palaeoceanography; ice shelf extent
•    Hydrological extremes: Fluvial-marine interaction; freshwater budget and ice-dammed lakes
•    Permafrost extremes: Maximum and minimum extent; rates of change; response to climate change
•    Glacio-dynamical extremes: Ice sheet configurations and instability; palaeo-ice stream dynamics and feedback mechanisms
•    Biotic change: Evolution of the Arctic marine and terrestrial biosphere and its response to extreme palaeoclimatic conditions; ice-age development of human settlement


Registration will open in february and deadline is March 15.
