International Glaciological Society British Branch Meeting

1–2 September 2020
University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh

We are hopeful things will have returned some form of normality by the time the meeting comes around but we are very aware that we may have to cancel or postpone the meeting. It all depends on how the pandemic situation develops. We are also exploring options for a remote participation/online-only meeting.
