How to contribute

We require that the first author of each contribution have to be a student or an early-career scientist (≤3 years after PhD. defence). If the first author of a contribution has obtained his/her PhD degree more than 3 years ago, the contribution will not be accepted.

Presentations from any discipline of both geosciences and biosciences that are focused on Polar or Alpine regions research are welcomed. Oral contributions should fit to 15 minutes for presentation + 5 minutes for discussion. The official language of the conference is English and all the contributions should be presented in English. In the case of excessive number of oral presentation, the Local Organizing Committee reserves the right to either shorten the length of the contributions or change an oral presentation to a poster. In that case participants will be notified by an e-mail.
