Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Online abstract submission for the International Symposium on ‘Sea Ice at the Interface’ is now open. 

The meeting is held 18–23 August 2019 in Winnipeg, Canada.

Please note that the abstract submission system is separate from the IGS portal. You will have to register your details if you have not submitted an abstract with us before.

If you have not already done so please go to and register your interest to attend as that will ensure you receive all future communications relating to the symposium. Formal registration should open on 10 April.

Please go to and submit your abstracts.

The first circular is posted on the IGS website. The second circular should appear before the end of this week.

Please use the symposium hashtag #seaice2019 when you tweet about it.

Please investigate whether you need a visa to enter Canada. The sooner you apply the more chance there is your visa will be ready in time for the symposium.

As Winnipeg is very popular during August we highly recommend that you book your hotel early. Full information will appear in the second circular
