SCAR Meetings and Conferences

The SCAR Open Science Conferences (OSC) are held every two years, in even years. The next conference, to be held in Davos, Switzerland in June 2018, will be a bi-polar conference held jointly with the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC).  Abstracts from previous Open Science Conferences are available on the OSC Abstracts page.  If you are interested in hosting a SCAR conference, please see the document Guidelines for Organisers of SCAR Meetings and visit the SCAR Meetings page for examples of successful bids.
