The International Symposium on Polar Sciences has been held once every year since the launch of our Antarctic research. This Symposium serves not only to bring polar scientists together, providing an international forum to exchange views and ideas, but also provides an opportunity to discuss collaborative research with colleagues. Symposium Theme: Antarctic Horizon Scan identified, 'learning how Antarctic life evolve and survived' as one of the six most important research questions for the next 20 years and beyond. Polar genomics is also one of the research initiatives KOPRI recently selected to pursue. In this regard, the theme of the 23rd International Symposium on Polar Science is timely set; "Life at the Extremes: Resilience, Adaptation and Application Potential." We cordially invite you to share your knowledge and understanding towards living organisms in the polar region.
Abstract Deadline: March 17, 2017. Find out more from the symposium website: http://symposium.kopri.re.kr
