CryoMars will be a 1.5 day meeting hosted at the Department of Geography, The University of Sheffield. CryoMars is a workshop-style meeting comprising talks and discussion on Martian glaciers, associated landforms (glacial, periglacial, and paraglacial), their Earth analogues, and their environmental and astrobiological implications. The meeting aims to support collaboration and discussion between the rapidly-growing community of Mars cryosphere scientists in the UK, and those working on analogous Quaternary landforms and processes on Earth. The meeting will provide a supportive environment for early career researchers, and those exploring new avenues in Mars cryosphere and Earth analogue science, to discuss ideas with the community and seek feedback. CryoMars was established in 2018 at The Open University. This will be the second CryoMars meeting, and it is hoped that it will become a regular (biennial) event. CryoMars was originally scheduled to take place in June 2020 but has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to limitations on capacity, CryoMars is currently invite-only. However, if you are interested in attending the rescheduled meeting, please contact Frances Butcher (f.butcher@sheffield.ac.uk).
