We are excited to announce that registration for the APECS Career Development Workshop is open! The 1-day workshop will be held on 21 May 2014, prior to the International Congress on Arctic Social Sciences VIII ( http://resweb.res.unbc.ca/icass2014/program.htm).
To register for the workshop, please go to http://apecs.is/apecs-meetings-a-events/upcoming-events/icass-2014/workshop. All APECS members attending the conference are encouraged to register. Registration is free and will be open until 25 April 2014.
The workshop will bring together young scientists and senior scientists to participate in a series of plenary talks, breakout sessions, and discussions. The plenary talks will be focused on career issues such as how to manage your research project and how get your research funded and write a successful proposal. The breakout groups and discussions will highlight the urgent need to incorporate traditional knowledge into research and how to inform policy makers about your research. For more concrete outcomes from the Workshop, we will collect and circulate the summaries and notes of the Workshop to let participants and others who were not able to attend the event to better understand all the mentioned above issues.
