IGS Conference

The University of Alaska Southeast and the International Glaciological Society are pleased to announce the International Symposium on Maritime Glaciers, which will take place in Juneau, Alaska, from 19–24 June 2022.


Maritime glaciers are an integral part of high-latitude coastal landscapes.


The symposium will be held on the campus of the University of Alaska Southeast.


Information on registration costs and how to register can be found here.

Travel and accommodations

Information on travel and accommodations will be posted here as it becomes available.


We have received over 75 abstracts for the conference and are currently working on finalizing the schedule. A draft schedule can be found by clicking below.

Pre-symposium excursion

Join us as we explore world-famous Glacier Bay National Park and learn about the effects that the Little Ice Age (LIA) advance and Post-LIA retreat have had on indigenous inhabitants and on local and regional terrain and ecosystems.

Social events

We have arranged an icebreaker reception, short afternoon trip to nearby Mendenhall Glacier, and a mid-week excursion to Tracy Arm that will be followed by a banquet at Orca Point Lodge.


The symposium is being organized by researchers at the University of Alaska Southeast, University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the National Park Service, and the scientific steering committee consists of a diverse range of researchers from around the world.

Please register your interest here.

Abstract submission is now open

At this time, we are prioritizing in-person attendance at the symposium. Individuals unable to attend in person will be able to attend virtually (at a lower cost). In-person sessions will be recorded and accessible over the Zoom online platform, with virtual talks integrated throughout in a hybrid fashion. Details on whether virtual talks will be live or pre-recorded will be provided closer to the date of the conference.

In the event that the majority of participants are unable to attend, we will adjust the conference structure accordingly.
