The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) and its Arctic counterpart IASC (International Arctic Science Committee) have organized a conference on Polar Research—Arctic and Antarctic Perspectives in the International Polar Year that will take place in St. Petersburg, Russia, 8–11 July 2008. Natural and social scientists are invited to present abstracts under a series of session headings that address the themes of the International Polar Year.
In addition, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) and the U.K. Polar network (the British branch of APECS) wants to help young scientists form connections through an international network of early career polar and cryosphere scientists and researchers. These groups are organizing a one-day professional-development workshop for 7 July 2008, the day before the SCAR/IASC open science conference. The meeting will include invited keynote speakers, panel sessions, and discussion groups. For more information, contact Liz Thomas <[email protected]> or go to <www.arcticportal.org/apecs>.
