SCAR 2012: Antarctic Science and Policy Advice in a Changing World

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 13 July 2012 to 25 July 2012

Where: Portland, Oregon


The Local Organizing Committee and Portland State University look forward to welcoming the Antarctic community to Portland, Oregon in July of 2012.

This SCAR Open Science Conference will focus on SCAR's dual role of science and advice to policy makers. In a change to previous conferences the first time slots (2.5 hours) of the last three days will be in plenary, with a focus on high level overarching themes we believe will be of interest to the majority of attendees:

-Antarctic Conservation Challenges in a Century of Change
-Past, Present and Future Climate Evolution
-Evolution and Biodiversity in Antarctica

There will be parallel sessions as normal after these plenary sessions.
