Progress and Priorities in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean

26 - 27 October 2021

We thank all those who participated in the 2021 AAPP Symposium, in person and online. The Symposium was a wonderful opportunity for staff and stakeholders to come together to showcase research achievements from our first two years of operation, and to help set future priorities.

Sessions over two days were broken up by theme, with presentations demonstrating what a productive first two years we have had, despite external factors.

Reports from breakout sessions indicated a strong desire for closer collaboration, and for a coordinated approach to setting priorities for future observing capability.

The Symposium 2021 report (see below) includes outcomes of the breakout sessions.

The posters were of outstanding quality and congratulations to our three poster prize winners: Stephy Libera (Best 'student' poster), Alex Fraser (best 'research associate' poster), and the Zooplankton team led by Kerrie Swadling (best 'in-kind contributor' poster).
