Polar Science: Through New Eyes

Event Dates

The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) announces a call for abstracts for an online conference titled "Polar Science: Through New Eyes." The conference will be held online on 18 May 2016.

This conference will encourage scientific dialogues between early career scientists from multiple disciplines and backgrounds, with presentations on new research perspectives from a range of research fields. With increased attention on the changing polar environment and the future challenges this will bring, this conference aims to convey the broad range of new research currently being conducted internationally.

Early career researchers are well placed to present new developments in their own fields through “new eyes,” while the conference provides an opportunity for those in the audience to gain exposure to a range of new techniques, methods, questions and themes. All polar researchers are invited to share their current research findings, but APECS particularly encourages the submission of abstracts by early career scientists, so they can gain invaluable experience presenting their research projects to the public. There will be a $300 prize given for best presentation at this conference which has been donated by APECS.

Sessions will be organized under the following themes:

  • Biological – marine/freshwater/terrestrial;
  • Geological/Environmental/terrestrial cryospheric environments;
  • Atmospherics/Climatology Oceanography/Sea-ice; and
  • Cultural/Historical/Policy/Education.

Abstract Submission Deadline: 25 April 2016.
