The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) is now organizing the 7th annual APECS International Online Conference which will be taking place on Wednesday, 12th May 2021. This year’s theme “Polar Science: Success Stories from the Field and from Home” aims to involve polar and alpine researchers from around the world.

The theme is designed to encourage contributions from those whose research has been impacted by Covid-19 and had to develop new directions with their research. It also acknowledges that some were able to carry out fieldwork, and so also gives a space for them to showcase their research. The conference will be an opportunity for new research to be presented and connections to be made across polar research. After what has been a difficult year for everyone around the world, we would like to celebrate and learn from your stories related to the polar and alpine regions that happened in 2020. We hope to hear both success stories and stories of learning from failure. The ultimate goal of the project is to unite the ECR community in a collegial and learning experience organized under the 7th annual APECS Online Conference.

For further information and to submit your abstract, please visit the International Online Conference 2021 webpage.

Abstract submission deadline: Wednesday, 31st March 2021

Registration for the conference to follow soon.
