The meeting was originally scheduled to be held ‘in person’ at Edinburgh in 2021 but once again we fell foul of the cursed Covid-19 pandemic hence we moved the meeting to Cyberspace via Zoom. This year we finally convene ‘in person’, in Edinburgh.
The IGSBB is an informal two-day meeting at which presentations are welcome on all aspects of ice and snow research, while the UKASC welcomes contributions on any aspect of Antarctic Science. We strongly encourage early-career researchers, including postgraduate students, to attend and present their work.

Format of the meetings and talks/posters The meetings will run in hybrid mode as follows:
* IGS British Branch will run from Tuesday 30 August mid morning to Thursday 1 September noon.
* The UK Antarctic Science Conference will run from 9am on Thursday 1 September to Friday 2 September mid-afternoon.
(Both meetings will overlap with presentations that combine the conference interests in Antarctic glaciology on the Thursday morning.)
* We plan for oral-talk slots that are 12-15 minutes long. Talks may be presented in-person or online (live or pre-recorded).
* For poster presenters, in-person presenters will be able to bring a standard poster for display on poster boards. We plan also to provide an option for presenting online posters, the format of which will depend on numbers of abstracts submitted, and may vary from simply a space for posters to be shared to a Gathertown space for online attendees.
