The APECS World Summit 2018 is part of the IASC/ASSW business & satellite meetings section before the start of the Open Science Conference.

This fee will include access to the conference building from 15 - 18 June 2018 and the use of meeting rooms as well as the coffee break / refreshments twice a day. Lunches and dinners are not included. APECS will not charge an additional registration fees for the World Summit.

If you want to apply for travel support to attend the APECS World Summit 2018 and POLAR2018 Conference, read more information on the APECS website. Application deadline for the travel funding is 28 February 2018.
APECS has only very limited travel funds that we can give out. These funds are at this stage reserved for the representatives of the APECS leadership and National Committee leaderships and can be applied for via the registration form.
We will however advertise any other funding sources on the APECS website that we are made aware of where other early career researchers can apply for travel support to attend both the APECS World Summit 2018 and the POLAR2018 conference.
