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.
