The latest version of the program can be found here.

The FRISP meeting is an opportunity for scientists working on ice shelf processes to meet in an informal setting and to exchange ideas, results and field plans. Presentations of research on all aspects of ice shelves and their interaction with the ocean, atmosphere, and ice sheet are welcome. Presentations are encouraged, but we also welcome participants without presentation.  

Location, timetable and transport: 

The meeting will start with dinner at Stalheim hotel at 19:30h Monday 19/6 and finish before lunch 22/6. The hotel is located in the vicinity of Voss, about 2h 15 min drive from Bergen. We will set up buses leaving at 16:00h from the city centre of Bergen and the airport Monday 19/6. Buses returning to Bergen and the airport will leave the hotel at 12:00h  (with packed lunch) Thursday 22/6. Please arrange your travel to Bergen accordingly. 

The bus from the city centre leaves from the central bus station “Bergen Busstasjon” Perrong P.  Map of Bergen bus station here
The bus from the airport picks you up in front of the arrival exit (P0 at ground floor in this map). The bus company refers to this as platform C11-13, but we’re not sure this will be marked in any way.
Our colleagues Vår (city centre) and Andreas (airport) will be there to meet you. Their contact information is sent by email. The buses leave at 16:00h. Please be on time!

If you want to make your own way to/from the hotel you can for example take the train (from Oslo/Bergen) to Voss, and the local bus from there to Stalheim. Or you can arrive by boat in Gudvangen or Flåm and continue by bus – see for time tables (and tickets). 

Accommodation and fees:   

The total cost of the meeting, including the organized bus to/from the hotel, accommodation and all meals (but no drinks), is 

6,360 NOK in single room
