The Conferencia Iberoamericana Online aims to create a space where Polar Early Careers Researchers and Educators from Spanish-speaking countries can share their work in their native language among peers and interested public. This event is an opportunity for multidisciplinary learning and international networking breaking the barriers of language, bringing together enthusiastic people with an interest in the Polar Region and Cryosphere.
The Conferencia Iberoamericana Online will be on Thursday 26 September, 2019, starting at 19:00 GMT.
The deadline to submit abstracts is on 20 September at 23:59 GMT
