Current topics of student research projects on geosciences and biosciences in Polar and Alpine environments

Dear young polar researchers,

We are happy to announce that Students in Polar and Alpine Research Conference (SPARC) will be held in Brno, Czech Republic, between 16th and 18th April 2018.

Department of Geography at the Faculty of Science, Masaryk University will host the fourth year of the conference. The last meeting showed the connection of Polar and Alpine regions in the field of geo- and bio-sciences as beneficial for all participants. Therefore, we decided to follow this trend and connect both geographical areas again. We hope you will discover a lot of interesting topics, ideas and contacts during the SPARC 2018.
