Polar2018 – Abstract deadline extended until 12 November 2017

The abstract deadline for the SCAR/IASC Open Science Conference has been extended and is now 12 November 2017, 6 pm CET.

The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research SCAR and the International Arctic Science Committee IASC invite the international polar and high altitude community to submit abstracts for the Open Science Conference OSC at POLAR2018 in Davos, Switzerland. The goal of POLAR2018 is to bring together excellent research from both poles, as well as from high altitude areas, focusing on the similar challenges those regions face. The program features 65 sessions, structured into 12 categories. In addition to the parallel sessions, central elements of the OSC will be keynote presentations, mini-symposia, extended poster sessions and exhibitions. The Open COMNAP Session will be held during the OSC, as well as a plenary lecture from the 2018 Arctic Observing Summit as an opening to this biennial summit immediately after the OSC.

Please see the website for submitting an abstract to Polar2018.
