ACUNS and APECS, in partnership with Yukon College, are soliciting, from students and early-career scholars, abstracts of work in any of the following areas:

  • The impact of sustainable development, economic activity and polar law on communities, governance and natural habitats.
  • The use of natural, physical and social sciences to help understand the causes and effects of the changing polar climate.
  • Changes to polar marine and terrestrial communities over the short and long term.
  • Changes in research communities and how research is undertaken in the Polar Regions.
The ACUNS-APECS: Communities of Change - Building an IPY Legacy Conference will highlight research occurring at both poles, including interactions between the cryosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, atmosphere and society.

Inter-disciplinary sessions will be arranged based on the number and breadth of abstracts submitted.

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2009
