The IX Latin American Congress on Antarctic Science is an opportunity to connect the growing community of Latin American polar scientists with researchers and potential collaborators from different regions of the world, and to provide a forum for sharing the latest results of research conducted in the White Continent.  For this gathering, the city of Punta Arenas was chosen because it is one of the main gateways for the National Antarctic Programs to Antarctica, and the starting point for many expeditions from the “heroic age”.

The CLCA2017 will comprise 3 different activities:

  1. Pre-congress Workshops (October 2-3, 2017)
  2. IX Latin American Congress on Antarctic Science:
    - Oral and poster presentations,
    - Keynote speeches,
    - Thematic symposia,
    - APECS meeting.
  3. Post-congress fieldtrip.
