Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


Last month in the building of the Murmansk Marine Biological Institute the 15th International Scientific Conference of students and graduate students "Problems of the Arctic region" was held.

The welcoming words were addressed by Professor Dr.Vladimir K. Zhirov from Russian Academy of Sciences, who told that this conference is organized every year and it became a tradition for the young scientists of Murmansk region and beyond such as Siberia, the Urals, Central Russia and the Far East.

The range of issues covered in the course of the scientific sections was wide from "Biology and Medicine", "Geology and Geophysics of the Arctic region", "Humanities and social challenges", "Information Technology and Mathematical Methods" "Marine biology" to "Problems of education in the Arctic region", "physical problems", "Chemical and technological problems", "Ecology of the North", "Economic Problems of development of the Arctic."

This year the number of reports submitted to the conference was quite large, and therefore conference "Problems of the Arctic Region" is a great place for young researchers to try their hand at public speaking, to be able to competently write and arrange their thesis work and receive important and sensible comments on their research by the colleagues.
