National Academies workshop: Technologies for Antarctic Research
From Tuesday 03 May 2022
To Thursday 05 May 2022
Location Online

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine invites you to join a workshop on “Technology Developments to Advance Antarctic Research”. This event will be held online, on May 3, 4, 5 (noon4:00 pm EDT each day). 

The goal of this event is to foster community-wide discussion about harnessing cutting-edge technological innovations to advance, facilitate, and transform Antarctic and polar research; to increase the reach of Antarctic and polar research while reducing the environmental footprint of these operations; and to facilitate broader, more diverse participation in Antarctic and polar research. While focused primarily on Antarctic science, we will explore lessons/solutions from Arctic science as well—and we actively seek to draw insights from scientists and engineers working outside of polar research.  

As input to this workshop, we invite your creative ideas regarding: existing technologies that hold potential to advance key aspects of Antarctic/polar research, but have not yet been applied for this purpose; or new technological advances that could plausibly (technologically, operationally) be developed to advance key aspects of Antarctic/polar research. [Submit input by April 20. You do not have to register for the workshop to submit ideas.] 

To submit ideas see the survey here.

To register for the workshop visit the NASEM Zoom registration form.
