Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


We are delighted to announce that registration is now open for the June workshop on CMIP6 21st century projections and predictions for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. Of particular relevance to APECS is that there is funding available to help support ECR attendance.

Places are limited so if you are interested please go ahead and register and/or book accommodation at:

Dates: 26-28 June 2019, British Antarctic Survey, UK.

Registration deadline: 15 March 2019 23.30 UTC

The aim of this workshop is to help ensure that the Antarctic and Southern Ocean climate science communities make a significant contribution to the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (AR6). Contributions on model-observation comparisons and evaluation of CMIP6 21st century predictions and projections from decadal to century timescales are encouraged. However, relevant non-CMIP6 simulations, such as Antarctic CORDEX, are also welcomed. In addition, a session dedicated to science-policy discussion is planned.

The format will be in the style of a small conference, with participants giving oral and poster presentations on their research. The exact length of the oral presentations, session topics and schedule will be decided after reviewing submitted abstracts. The latest information will be posted on our news page ( and look out for announcements on this mailing list and via Twitter ( We are grateful for the support of both SCAR and the WCRP CliC Core Project. 

Organising committee: Nancy Bertler, Tom Bracegirdle, Alia Khan, Gerhard Krinner, Marilyn Raphael
