Organizers are seeking abstracts for short 10-minute presentations that relate this year's theme of encouraging alternative solutions for undertaking and communicating polar research. As a new generation of polar researchers stepping up to the plate, new and innovative polar challenges must be embraced.
The ability to successfully address such challenges and steer the polar world in a positive direction has far-reaching local, regional, and global consequences. Researchers should venture "outside the box" of the ideas that previous generations of polar researchers have left in order to overcome the severity of polar challenges. New ideas regarding international and interagency collaborations, idea-sharing between poles, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to research, technology and the ability to modify and develop it to suit needs, affordable methods of research, and improved ways of communicating scientific and social research are needed. To this end, APECS is working to foster the sharing of alternative solutions for undertaking and communicating polar research.
