Community Workshop on Ice Drilling
Community members interested in identifying the next deep and intermediate-depth drilling sites in Greenland and Antarctica (using the DISC Drill or Intermediate Depth Drill) are invited to participate in a short meeting to identify community consensus on the target sites and dates at the upcoming IDPO Community Workshop on Ice Coring at U.C. Irvine on February 26 & 27, 2014. Results of these discussions will form the basis of the drilling sites identified in the IDPO Long Range Science Plan for 2014-2024. IDPO can help with travel costs. If you are interested please send an email to Mary Albert ASAP, but preferably before Dec 20, at Icedrill@Dartmouth.edu
7th International Workshop on Ice Drilling Technology
The 7th International Workshop on Ice Drilling Technology will be held from 9-13 September 2013 at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. As more information about the workshop becomes available it will posted on the workshop's website at: http://icedrill.org/7th-international-workshop-on-ice-drilling-technology/.
IPICS 2012 Open Science Conference
The first Open Science Conference of the International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS) will be held from 1-5 October 2012 at the beautiful setting of the Belembra club, situated on the border of the Mediterranean Sea in one of the best spots of the French Côte d'Azur.
The objective of the conference is to present, discuss and put into perspective the most recent results of past and current ice core drilling projects (deep drillings such as EPICA, WAIS Divide, NEEM, TALDICE,... but also shallow drillings) in Antarctica and Greenland. Other ice core drilling projects conducted in non-polar glaciers or in other Arctic sites are also welcome. For more information, please visit the conference web site at: http://www.ipics2012.org/.
2011 Ice Drilling Science Community Planning Workshop
On April 15-16, 2011 the IDPO sponsored an interdisciplinary ice community workshop to identify future Arctic and Antarctic drilling/coring sites, the ice drilling technology that will be needed, and the timeline over the coming decade for conducting scientific endeavors important for advancing science on many frontiers. Results from the workshop were reflected in updates to the science descriptions, timeline and planning matrices in the Long Range Science Plan and Long Range Drilling Technology Plan to help ensure that the drilling technology will be ready when needed by the science.

6th International Workshop on Ice Drilling Technology
The 6th International Workshop on Ice Drilling Technology was held at the US Fish and Wildlife Service National Conservation Training Center in Shepherdstown, West Virginia on 17-23 September 2006. Proceedings from the workshop are published in Annals of Glaciology, volume 47 (2007).
