Association of Polar Early Career Scientists
 

Outside the box logoWelcome to the APECS International Online Conference 2017 webpage! Following the highly successful International Online Conferences in 2015 and 2016, APECS is proud to announce that our much anticipated third annual conference will kick-start Polar Week on the 20th of March 2017. This year’s theme is: “Outside the Box: encouraging alternative solutions for undertaking and communicating polar research.” As a new generation of polar researchers stepping up to the plate, we must embrace new and innovative polar challenges. Our ability to successfully address such challenges and steer the polar world in a positive direction has far-reaching local, regional, and global consequences.

We should not be afraid to venture Outside the Box of the ideas that previous generations of polar researchers have left us in order to overcome the severity of polar challenges we face. Striving to succeed, we must discover new ways of thinking and acting, using to our advantage: international and interagency collaborations; idea-sharing between poles; interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to research; technology and our ability to modify and develop it to suit our needs; affordable methods of research; improved ways of communicating scientific and social research; and most importantly ideas we haven’t thought of yet but you have! To this end, APECS wishes to foster the sharing of alternative solutions for undertaking and communicating polar research, allowing a new generation of polar researchers to shine.

Can you help the up-and-coming generation of polar researchers do better? Do you yearn to share your alternative solutions for undertaking and communicating polar research? Do you want to learn from other early career polar researchers? Could you potentially integrate their ideas with your own to ensure we achieve the greatest possible solutions? Please join us for the APECS International Online Conference 2017!

Abstracts have now closed. Audience registration will be available by 1 March 2017.
