Last week we were happy to host the 23rd Alpine Glaciology Meeting at the University of Innsbruck. The meeting was generously sponsored by the University of Innsbruck and the Faculty of Geo- and Atmospheric sciences.

We had two days of glaciological talks and poster presentations, plus a chance to meet and network with colleagues. The program can be accessed here.

Here are a couple of impressions:
