Alexey Pavlov, APECS Marine Geosciences Discipline Coordinator and PhD Student at St. Petersburg State University, has been asked to serve on the Scientific Steering Group (SSG) for the Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2011 which will be held March 28 to April 1, 2011 in Seoul, Korea.  The theme for ASSW 2011 is "The Arctic: the New Frontier for Global Science". Dr. Byong Kwon Park of the Korean Polar Research Institute and Dr. Jackie Grebmeier of the University of Maryland have agreed to serve as co-chairs of the SSG.

Serving on steering committees for conferences is another great opportunity to meet and learn from senior researchers, as well as help shape the scientific agenda. The general requirements of these committees are to:

  • Determine and invite keynote speakers;
  • Collect abstracts from keynote speakers;
  • Determine and invite session chairs;
  • Assist the session chairs in the review and selection of submitted abstracts.
