Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


igs logo oldAs many of you know, the IPY Oslo Science Conference will be held from 8-12 June and the 3rd European Conference on Permafrost the week after on Svalbard. Just in case you want to spend as much time learning about polar research in Norway as possible - I wanted to also tell you about the International Symposium on Sea Ice happening from 31 May to 4 June in my beautiful home of Tromsø. The conference is sponsored by the International Glaciological Society, a good partner to APECS. There is a great line up of presenters and social activities - including an APECS Mentor Panel coordinated by some of our fabulous APECS Sea Ice Researchers. For more information on the panel, please contact Angelika Renner. For more information on the conference, visit:

Three weeks of great science being shared in Norway this spring! I hope to see lots of you here - its a great place to be :)
