Integrated Science to Inform Antarctic and Southern Ocean Conservation (Ant-ICON)

Ant Icon Community Engagement Meeting web
Registration is now open for the Ant-ICON Community Engagement Meeting.

The aim of this meeting is to provide an opportunity to hear from the Steering Committee and provide a forum where a broad cross-section of the Antarctic research community can ask questions and discuss ideas. All are welcome!
It will take the form of a town-hall type meeting, with short presentations from Chief Officers, Deputy Chief Officers and Theme Leads, with opportunities for broad discussion and questions throughout the meeting.
The same meeting will be held twice to provide better access across multiple time zones.
