IPY Report: January 2010


1) Oslo!

1) Oslo

We urge the IPY community to respond quickly and enthusiastically to the upcoming opportunities and deadlines for the IPY Oslo Science Conference, 8-12 June 2010.

Abstract deadline - 20 January 2010


For IPY Participants - We believe the list of sessions provides a home for almost any IPY research topic.  We have a review process in place to ensure that every abstract gets prompt, careful and fair evaluation.

For IPY Projects - You have great science to share, but also great outreach stories to tell.  Every project should highlight its outreach activities by submitting abstracts to Theme 6, in addition to submitting science abstracts.

For early career scientists - The conference has generous support options for early career scientists!

For teachers - The conference has a workshop and stipends for you!

For filmmakers - The conference has opened a Polar Cinema for polar films and television documentaries. 


The best polar science in a great location - please join us!

2) Changes in IPO

We welcome Nicola Munro back to action in the IPO.  Nicola will take primary responsibility for education, for the March 2010 polar week, and for concluding activities by the IPY National Committees and Projects.  Melissa Deets will continue in the IPO, with primary responsibility for the web site and for the IPO Oslo preparations.  We will undertake several other wrap-up activities together, including archiving our collections of IPY records and materials.  We welcome your questions or suggestions.
