With "Responding to Climate Crisis: Contributions of Polar Science and Technology” as its overarching theme, the symposium invites papers that examine:
  • Polar climate science in the context of global climate crisis;
  • Cryosphere evolution and sea-level change;
  • Sea ice and polar oceans in rapid transition;
  • A paleoclimate perspective on climatic and environmental extremes;
  • Integrated study of subglacial Antarctic lake ecosystems; and
  • Technological advances enabling new polar science.
Abstracts will be accepted for oral and poster presentations, and all submissions must be in English. Important dates are as follows:
  • Abstract Submission: April 12 - May 23, 2021
