You are invited to attend and submit an abstract for the 'Strategic Science in Antarctica' Conference, to be held in Hobart from 24-28 June 2013 at the University of Tasmania.
Titled Strategic Science in Antarctica, the conference will focus on current research occurring on the icy continent and in the Southern Ocean. Featuring a number of keynote speakers, science talks, poster displays and post-conference workshops, the conference will give researchers the opportunity to collaborate and share their research. Talks and workshops on policy, operational planning, science communications and the application process for research in Antarctica are also planned.
This inaugural joint conference is the result of a collaboration between the Australian Antarctic Division and Antarctica New Zealand. These two organisations have a shared vision for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean: 'Valued, Protected And Understood'. The conference is an important professional forum for the Antarctic science community to meet and exchange ideas.
Further details will be published on this website as they become available.
Abstract submissions closed in April 2013.
A provisional conference program will be published in May.
