About APECS

IPY-OSC Francisco Fernandoy-46
APECS is an international and interdisciplinary organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early faculty members, educators and others with interests in Polar Regions and the wider cryosphere. Our aims are to stimulate interdisciplinary and international research collaborations, and develop effective future leaders in polar research, education and outreach. We seek to achieve these aims by:
  • Facilitating international and interdisciplinary networking to share ideas and experiences and to develop new research directions and collaborations;
  • Providing opportunities for professional career development; and
  • Promoting education and outreach as an integral component of polar research and to stimulate future generations of polar researchers.

Dear All,

The 11th International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences in
Edinburgh, UK, 10th ? 15th July 2011, is shaping up to be a fantastic
event in the 2011 Polar Science calendar and the abstract submission
deadline is fast approaching.

*Thursday 31st March at 5pm GMT*

is the deadline for submitting your abstracts for oral and poster
presentations. This is also the deadline for Early Bird (cheap!)
registration. This gives you two weeks from today, so log on to
www.isaes2011.org.uk and submit your abstracts and register before the
31st March!

There is funding support available for early career researchers from
ISAES, supported by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research
(SCAR). Make sure you submit a funding support application form at the
time of abstract submission in order to be eligible for this funding ?
go to http://www.isaes2011.org.uk/earlycareer.html for more
information and to download the form.

As well as a world-class science conference, there will be an Early
Career Scientists evening featuring a panel discussion with expert
mentors on the subject of ?Succeeding in Polar Science? with
refreshments provided, followed by continued informal networking in
the conference bar. We are also planning some exciting science
outreach and public engagement events, in which APECS and UKPN members
will play a key role!

This really is going to be a great event for UKPN, APECS and Polar
Science as a whole!

Best of luck with your abstracts and funding support applications. We
look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh in the summer!

I am interested in the ecological consequences of ice cover to freshwater ecosystems. The acute seasonality between the extended dark winters and short cold summers with 24 hrs of day light, have distinct constraints to food availability and consumer survival. My research focuses on the aquatic ecosystems of the arctic and subarctic studying the dietary strategies used by zooplankton to cope with these harsh environments.

Starting September 2013 as a W. Garfield Weston Postdoctoral Fellow, working in Northern Canada.
