Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


IV Simposio Latinoamericano Sobre Investigaciones Antárticas Y VII Reunión Chilena de Investigación Antártica (IV Latin American Symposium and VII Chilean Meeting on Antarctic Research) was held from 3 - 5 September in Valparaíso, Chile.

From the organizers:

"During the last couple of years, the Antarctic Continent successively ceased being just a notable and remote area full of singularities. Triggered by the launch of a series of initiatives, the white continent today becomes more and more a land of opportunities. Thus, the general objective of this congress is to provide the Latin American scientific community with the tools to maximize scientific and technological competitiveness, set in the context of a globalized Antarctica as source of information and useful resources for further development."

APECS members from our two new national committees in South America, APECS Chile and APECS Brazil, met and discussed common research themes and future collaborations.
