Event Format: Online conference (webinar)


APECS webinar organizers announce registration for audience members to participate in our International Online Conference, “New Perspectives in the Polar Sciences,” which is scheduled for 16 March 2015 (09:00 GMT to 22:05 GMT):

Please register for New Perspectives in the Polar Sciences on Mar 16, 2015 9:00 AM GMT at: 

https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/9104074290012167682

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

This conference will engage scientific dialogues between early career scientists from multiple disciplines and backgrounds on new research perspectives in their field of research. With increased attention on the changing polar environment and the future challenges this will bring, this conference aims to convey the broad range of new research currently being conducted internationally. Guest speakers include Prof. Pete Convey from the British Antarctic Survey, UK, who will be discussing new research on the evolution and adaptation of Antarctic terrestrial biota and the implications of this for future management and conservation; and Prof. John Smellie from the University of Leicester, UK, will be discussing new methodological applications of glaciovolcanism that are able to better reconstruct the evolution of the Antarctic Ice Sheet, the largest ice mass in the world. The full conference programme is given below: 

The detailed conference programme including all abstracts can be downloaded on the APECS website
