Please note that due to cost concerns and the regional scope of the meeting, we limit submissions to Antarctic researchers based in the Nordic countries (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden). However, researchers from other countries may be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The Quantarctica project strongly encourages applications from students and early-career researchers.
