Summary

SCAR’s Open Science Conferences have been a focal point for the Antarctic research community for over fifteen years. Through SCAR 2020 Online we are excited to present many of the highlights of the science we had originally planned to bring to you at the Hobart OSC, which was sadly cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All the activities of SCAR 2020 Online will take place via the OnAIR event portal. To join you will need to register (follow the link above). Once you have registered you will receive a confirmation email. Your login details for the OnAIR portal will be sent to you on July 20. If you register after July 20, login details will be sent to you immediately upon registering.

Access to the portal is via your browser and there is no extra software to download.

Registration is free and open to everybody.

SCAR 2020 Online is more than a live event – it is a collection of opportunities for researchers to engage with each other, and for those outside of research to find out more about this exciting field.

  • invited speakers will be delivering a range of plenary sessions, workshops and symposia
  • authors of accepted abstracts for the cancelled Hobart OSC will be sharing material for view and comment before and after the meeting
  • a number of text-based chat sessions and virtual poster sessions are planned
