We would like to announce an opportunity for polar scientists of all career stages to obtain formal training in science communication strategies during an NSF- and NASA-funded workshop held in Boulder, CO, USA from August 12-14, 2017. The workshop will take place immediately prior to the International Glaciological Society (IGS) International Symposium on Polar Ice, Polar Climate, Polar Change at the University of Colorado Boulder. The workshop will include two days of oral communication training by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science and one day of written communication training by Dr. Max Boykoff and his team from the University of Colorado Boulder.

The workshop is open to 32 polar scientists from all career stages and spanning all disciplines in the physical and social sciences. Workshop participants do not need to attend the IGS symposium in order to participate in the science communication workshop. Funding for domestic travel and lodging are available for ~19 early-career scientists.

Workshop applications and additional information can be found at http://usapecs.wixsite.com/usapecs/polar-scicom-workshop.
Applications are due June 5th. Notification of acceptance, and early-career funding if applicable, will be made by July.
