SCAR 2024 Open Science Conference: Antarctic early career research priorities to inform International Polar Year discussions – Workshop to develop first draft

SCAR 2024 Informing IPY Workshop

Polar early career researchers attending the 2024 Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) Open Science Conference are welcome to participate in a workshop to discuss International Polar Year (IPY) priorities.

With the next IPY just around the corner in 2032-2033, planning for determining which big scientific questions to prioritize within these discussions has already begun. Given that the established research priorities during the IPY will provide guidance for steering the research of early career researchers for the next 25+ years, it is important to make sure that input from the polar early career community is considered during these upcoming IPY discussions. This workshop will develop a first draft of these priorities and inform the 2025 Polar Early Career World Summit that is being organized by the Polar Science Early Career Community Office (PSECCO) and the Association for Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS). We plan to use this international gathering of members of the Antarctic early career community to start collating ideas around multi-disciplinary early career priorities for Antarctic science. Outcomes from the brainstormed ideas at the workshop will be collated and used to inform world summit planning conversations in 2025.

This workshop will be convened by PSECCO's Director Mariama Dryák-Vallies. Please consider joining us in the Usnea room on Friday, August 23, 2024 from 9:45am to 11:15am local time.
