SCAR Conferences

The SCAR Open Science Conferences (OSC) are held every two years, in even years. The next conference will be in Malaysia in August 2016.  The 2018 OSC will be a bi-polar conference held jointly with the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC).  Abstracts from previous Open Science Conferences are available on the OSC Abstracts page.

SCAR symposia are held every four years and have a focus on a particular community. They are the SCAR Biology Symposium and the International Symposium on Antarctic Earth Sciences (ISAES).  The most recent symposium was ISAES XII, held in Goa, India in 2015, and the next will be the Biology Symposium, to be held in Belgium in 2017.
