The preliminary program for our 2-day summit is available online. Day one (17 June) is a closed meeting for members of our APECS Leadership and APECS National Committee Leaderships only. Day 2 (18 June) will be an open workshop for all early career researchers attending POLAR2018. We will continue to update the World Summit page over the coming months with more information.
The registration form for the summit is available on the summit website. There will not be a registration fee for the World Summit (either day), but participants are required to register for the IASC/ASSW business meetings section of POLAR2018, at a cost of 30 CHF.
Registration deadlines will be:
- 16 February 2018 for APECS Leadership and APECS National Committee leadership reps who want to attend both days of the summit.
- 31 March 2018 for APECS members and other interested early career researchers wanting to attend the second day of the summit.
There will be also other interesting workshops and events planned for early career researchers around the POLAR2018 conference. We will add information about them to our APECS website as they are scheduled. Current information on all side-meetings of the conference can be found here.
