The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science provides early career scientists with a unique opportunity to further enhance their Gordon Conference experience. The goal of this conference is to bring together graduate students and postdocs within all fields of polar marine science, including marine biology, chemistry, physics, geology, and technology to discuss interdisciplinary links and provide a basis for future collaborations. We especially encourage contributions that demonstrate interdisciplinary research approaches within and linking across the domains of atmosphere, sea ice, ocean, and benthos, including links to ice shelves, coasts, and human interactions.

The conference will consist of oral presentations selected from the submitted abstracts, and poster sessions. The conference will start with a keynote address from a senior scientist and conclude with a mentorship panel to provide participants with useful insights into potential career paths in polar marine science. Limited travel support might become available to attendees that indicate a need to the chairs before December 16, 2018.

The seminar will feature approximately 10 talks and 2 poster sessions. All attendees are expected to actively participate in the GRS, either by giving an oral presentation or presenting a poster. Therefore, all applications must include an abstract.

The seminar chair will select speakers from abstracts submitted by December 16, 2018.

Those applicants who are not chosen for talks and those who apply after the deadline to be considered for an oral presentation will be expected to present a poster. In order to participate, you must submit an application by the date indicated in the Application Information section above.

This GRS will be held in conjunction with the "Polar Marine Science" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRC in addition to an application for the GRS. Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
