To Friday 25 January 2019
January is close and with it the Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø, Norway, between January 20 and 24! During the Arctic Frontiers conference, you are invited to exciting events where you can present your ideas and research results during the poster session. There, the best presenters compete for the traditional APECS poster awards. The poster sessions will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Clarion Hotel The Edge.
We also invite you to a panel debate on scientific publishing. During the Arctic Frontiers conference, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) traditionally organizes a panel discussion that aims at a key aspect of career development.
Publishing the outcome of our research work is among the most powerful tools to share with the world what we have learned, publications emerge from or build on theses, and they measure our success in science. Thus, navigating the publication jungle is an important, exciting and challenging task for early career scientists. How to choose a journal that fits the study, judge its quality, open access publications, and how scientific productivity and impact are measured through publications are possible questions to be discussed.
Therefore, the Arctic Frontiers organizing committee of APECS chose to move publications in the focus of this year`s panel. The panel debate is scheduled for Tuesday, January 22, kl. 18:30-19:30 at Fram Centre. We have invited 4 panelists with diverse backgrounds to include a variety of different angles, to trigger discussions and to exchange experiences. The panel will be open to all interested early career scientists. Please bring your own non-alcoholic (!) beverages and snacks or dinner to-go!
