IGS2014 International Symposium on Sea Ice in a Changing Environment
The IGS2014 International Symposium on Sea Ice in a Changing Environment is happening in Hobart next March (http://seaice.acecrc.org.au/igs2014/).
The symposium local organising committee would like to encourage you to:
(1) Consider submitting an abstract for the conference (the deadline has been extended to 20th Sept 2013 and the Scientific Committee has indicated that a low number of submissions have been received from local students and ECRs).
(2) Consider volunteering to help with aspects of the conference itself. This might include helping to chair sessions, manning the registration desk, providing general info to international visitors or being involved with public events.
If you think you might be interested in number (2) then please get in touch with me, Petra Heil (Petra.Heil@utas.edu.au) or Molly Jia (Zhongnan.Jia@utas.edu.au), and we can provide you with more information. Volunteering at a conference like this would certainly be an excellent opportunity to make some great contacts for future work.
