The SCAR OSC will be held in Kuala Lumpur from 20-30 August 2016. We already have over 725 abstracts submitted, but because many of you are still returning from the field we have decided to allow a single extension of the abstract submission to the 29 February (all time zones).
There are several sessions which might be of interest for you. The more abstracts for our sessions are submitted, the better the chances are to get good slots at the conference. This is the link for the sessions and description: http://scar2016.com/symposia-session.php – see especially: S 33 (the role of humanities and social science in Antarctic studies), S 34 (Footprints in Antarctica and Antarctica’s footprint: perspectives from History), S 35 (Data access and sharing for cutting edge science), S 39 (Antarctic Research and the media).
