Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


International Penguin Early Career Scientists (IPECS) is accepting abstracts for a small number of oral presentations during our 1st Early Career Forum on Sun., Sept. 4, 2016. The Forum is a scheduled session of our International Penguin Careers workshop (Sept. 2-4), to be held the weekend before and in partnership with the 9th International Penguin Conference in Cape Town, South Africa (Sept. 5-9). This workshop is free to attend, thanks to the generosity of our Major Sponsor, the Global Penguin Society.

If interested, early career scientists should submit abstracts for oral presentations during our Forum no later than Thurs., June 30, 2016. Each speaker will receive time to share their penguin research, time to answer questions, and then personal feedback from IPECS' expert mentors on how they can improve their presentation.
