The main goals of this meeting were to (1) present APECS -Brazil to the scientific community, government representatives, general public and new potential APECS participants; (2) establish partnerships among early career polar scientists aiming at future cooperation and interdisciplinary studies; (3) exchange scientific knowledge, field experiences, advancements and difficulties of polar research between early and senior scientists studying this environment; and (4) encourage the development of Polar Education & Outreach Activities. During the event 22 talks and 27 scientific posters were presented.
