Since its formation, Ice Core Young Scientists (ICYS) has been successful in establishing an international network of early career scientists. The group's purpose is to facilitate personal connections among young scientists, build a supportive ice core science community, and foster collaborations. ICYS has organised informal gatherings and networking events at many large science conferences globally since 2012. In connection with the second IPICS 2016 Open Science Conference (7-11 March 2016), ICYS organized the first ever workshop specifically for early career ice core scientists, on the day preceding the main conference.

The workshop aimed to foster collaboration among young scientists in the community, enhance specific skills relevant to ice core science, and provide a forum for discussion of important career-related topics. The workshop will include plenary sessions on the future of ice coring science, as well as supervised break-out discussions of “softer” skills that are vital to a scientific career but rarely are part of the formal academic training. The workshop will also feature a panel discussion with senior scientists on topics such as work/life balance, strategies for dual-career couples, challenges involved in being a chief scientist, leadership techniques as a PI, etc.
