APECS Virtual Poster Session 2010 - 2012

This session is a result of the CAREX Conference session on Polar Microbiology organized by SCAR, IASC and APECS.

This recording is part of the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) effort focuses on bringing the concept of the poster presentation beyond the four walls of the conference hall and creates an online database of polar research poster publications. This project allows members with similar goals and interests to exchange information and assures a platform for the exchange of Arctic, Antarctic and Cryospheric research, policy, and education activities that are Shaping the Future of Polar Research. APECS is leading an effort towards e-conferences among polar researchers where participants can present their research findings to an international audience through web-based settings using the APECS website. As part of this project regular online virtual poster sessions are held.
