On 22 September 2016, during the APECS International Polar Week Autumn, we organize an OPEN social and networking event for young scientists with an interest in polar research.

BSc, MSc, PhD, Postdoc and other young scientists are welcome!

Our aim is to get an overview of the polar research taking place in Göteborg and to stimulate interdisciplinary exchange and networking. The meeting will include oral presentations and a poster session accompanied by ‘fika’. In the evening, you are welcome to join us and continue with an informal social activities and dinner.

The U.S. Association of Polar Early Career Scientist (USAPECS) announces the virtual Polar Film Festival in celebration of Polar Week 2016.

Organizers have assembled a set of short films, and some longer ones, around a set of four themes: the cryosphere, polar biology and ecology, polar regions in the global context, and the human dimension. Each night scientists with relevant expertise will be watching the films and available to answer questions via Twitter using #PolarFilmFest.

This session invites contributions to discuss all the aspects of the cryosphere interacting with the climate system, at various time scales and from both modelling and observational point of view and addressing past, present and future variability. The cryosphere represents one of the Earth system compartments' surface portion where links to the climate system are particularly strong.
