2016 South Pole Ice Core Science Meeting
September 19-20, 2016
La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club (lodging at La Jolla Shores Hotel)
La Jolla, California
The 2016 South Pole Ice Core science meeting will be on September 19-20 in La Jolla, CA. The meeting will be restricted to funded PIs and their staff and students, and to PIs who have South Pole Ice Core proposals pending at NSF.
The meeting itself will be held in the Walnut Room of the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club, whereas the overnight lodging will be at the La Jolla Shores Hotel. The La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club and the La Jolla Shore Hotel are next to one another so no transportation is needed to get between the two.
When you check into the La Jolla Shores Hotel, you should receive a key to your room and also a key that will get you into the Beach & Tennis Club. Access the Beach & Tennis Club by the gate just south of the Shores Hotel (across from the driveway into the Shores courtyard). Walk south through the parking lot to the main entrance and ask where the La Sala room is located. The last page of the attached handout contains a map.(back to top)

The AGENDA FOR THE MEETING is now available to download. This version of the agenda does not contain the talk and poster abstracts. If you registered to attend the meeting, you have received an email from Joseph Souney that contains the version of the agenda/meeting handout that contains the abstracts.
** We will NOT be distributing printed, or electronic, copies of the meeting handout. If you would like to have a printed copy of the meeting handout with you during the meeting you must print it out AND BRING IT WITH YOU TO THE MEETING. **(back to top)
Registration for the meeting closed on August 31. If you have any questions, contact Joseph Souney.(back to top)
You may submit a request to give a talk at the meeting. The South Pole Ice Core science committee will ultimately decide on the talks that are accepted for the meeting. The deadline for requesting a talk is SUNDAY, AUGUST 21. Abstracts submitted after August 21 will not be considered.
To submit an abstract for a talk, complete the registration form.(back to top)
You may submit a request to present a poster at the meeting. Because we are limited in the number of posters that we can accommodate at the La Jolla Shores Beach and Tennis Club, and because we anticipate potentially more posters than we can accommodate, we are instituting the following policy for the posters: if you are interested in presenting a poster at the meeting, you must submit a poster abstract, via the registration form, by SUNDAY, AUGUST 21. Once we receive all of the poster abstracts we will determine whether we can accommodate them all. If we can't accommodate all of the poster requests, posters with topics that are South Pole Ice Core specific will take priority over non-South Pole Ice Core specific posters.
Posters must be PORTRAIT STYLE and no larger than 36" WIDE (x 60" TALL). Posters will be posted on easels. Also, each poster will have an assigned easel, so if you arrive to the meeting with a poster that you didn't tell us about we won't be able to accommodate it.(back to top)
The meeting is in the Walnut Room of the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club (not at the Scripps Seaside Forum).

People need to arrange for their own travel from the airport to/from the hotel. We have been told that a taxi ride from San Diego International Airport (SAN) to La Jolla Shores is about $50.00. There are also shuttles that stop at multiple hotels that may be less expensive (http://www.san.org/Parking-Transportation).
Alternatively, we have a ride-sharing board for those of you who are renting cars and can offer rides to others or who need a ride, or for those of you who want to share a cab ride:
