Progress and Priorities in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean

26 - 27 October 2021

Two years have passed since the Australian Antarctic Program Partnership embarked on its ten-year program of scientific collaboration and discovery.  Our first Symposium will be a showcase for early research achievements, and a platform for discussing important emerging research challenges.

The mission of the AAPP is to support research on the role of the Antarctic region in the global climate system and the implications on marine ecosystems.  Guided by the Australian Antarctic Science Strategic Plan and Australian Antarctic Strategy and 20 Year Action Plan, the work of the AAPP research builds on a globally significant body of collaborative research established in Hobart over four decades.

Day one will focus on the state of Antarctic and Southern Ocean research, with day two to explore progress and challenges simulating the Antarctic system. Poster sessions in the afternoons on both days and will encourage networking by AAPP staff and students, alongside breakout sessions aimed at fostering progress around fieldwork, modelling, and techniques.

* Please note that a copy of the full event program will be circulated to registrants (and available here) in the coming weeks.
