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 a PhD student at the University of Manitoba and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, studying the diet and energetics of the Eastern Beaufort Sea beluga population under the supervision of Dr. Lisa Loseto and Dr. Jim Roth. I finished my MSc. in the Chemical and Environmental Toxicology program at the University of Ottawa, studying biovector transport of contaminants (mercury, PCBs, and DDT) from a large seabird colony to High Arctic food webs at Cape Vera, Devon Island, Nunavut, Canada. I have worked at Environment Canada on various projects in environmental toxicology, such as monitoring temporal trends of perfluorinated compounds in polar bears, immuntoxicity in bivalves, and the effects of brominated flame retardants on the reproductive success of tree swallows. I have also worked as an evaluator for the Ecological Assessment Division, studying the toxicity and bioaccumulation of selenium and other inorganic substances in aquatic ecosystems. I am very interested in the impacts of contaminants in Arctic ecosystems and their interactions with other stressors on marine mammals. I am also involved in science education and outreach, and have a B.Ed from the Outdoor Education program at Queen's University and have worked as an educator at the Canadian Museum of Nature.
