Association of Polar Early Career Scientists



SCAR is seeking new and innovative ways to communicate Antarctic Science to everyone (scientists, managers, the public) with greater impact.

At the SCAR OSC 2014, there will be a science session (#48) at which a valuable prize will be awarded for the most innovative presentation of Antarctic research results in any discipline. This is the first such award given at SCAR OSC, and is a follow-on to the linkage of science and creative arts activities at the last SCAR OSC meeting.

Researchers' presentations will be video-taped and judged for innovation and impact and the award will be presented at the OSC banquet. The winner will receive a new iPad Air (64GB) and their presentation will be posted on the SCAR website for viewing by the research community. We encourage you to read the information about Session #48 on the 2014 OSC website, and consider submitting your abstract to Session #48 to compete for the award. The deadline for abstracts is 14 February 2014.
