The second pre-conference circular for the 2020 SCAR meetings and Open Science Conference to be held in Hobart, Australia in July-August 2020 is now available. The circular outlines some key pieces of information about SCAR COMNAP 2020, including the opening of the abstract submission system and more detail on the content and program for the meetings.
The COMNAP Annual General Meeting will run concurrently with SCAR and the organisers are working to schedule events to encourage participation across the two groups. The OSC theme ‘Antarctic Science: Global Connections’ highlights the scientific connections between Antarctica and the global system and collaboration in our Antarctic science community.
The Local Organising Committee are working closely with the SCAR and COMNAP Secretariats on meeting preparations including an excellent program of conference and side events. Planning for SCAR COMNAP 2020 includes efforts to minimise waste, encourage sustainable resource management and to foster participation inclusion and diversity.
We look forward to seeing you all in Hobart next year!
