The organizing committee from Swiss Polar Institute calls for poster proposals by PhD and Early Career Researchers to "High Altitudes meet High Latitudes: Globalizing Polar Issues" Conference.

We invite contributions expending upon the main topics addressed at the conference. We are encouraging proposals that highlight the relations between High Altitudes and High Latitudes and are looking for a wide variety of disciplinary perspectives, including physical sciences, earth and bio sciences, as well as social sciences and humanities. In addition to a conventional poster presentation, all selected posters presentations will take part in flash-talk sessions (120' for each session).

In order to mobilize PhD and Early career researchers from European and non-European research communities, we will provide partial travel and accommodation support (up to 1200 CHF). Participants will be selected on the basis of an extended abstract (up to 600 words).

Application and deadline:

Deadline for abstracts: April 30, 2017
Notification of acceptance: May 29, 2017
Deadline for a Flash-talk presentation: September 5, 2017

Please, send abstracts to spi.cransmontana [at] epfl.ch
