Group Travel Award: XIIth SCAR International Biology SymposiumEntry ID: USAP-1704236_1
Abstract: This project supported US participation in the XIIth Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR) International Biology Symposium. The theme of this meeting and ancillary workshops was Scale Matters. Meeting sessions specifically addressed biodiversity and physiology spanning from molecular through ecosystem scales.
The project provided partial support (airfare and meeting registration) for ... 20 US scientists to travel to Leuven, Belgium and attend the SCAR International Biology Symposium in July 2017. Preference was given to applicants who were students and early career scientists. The call for applications was broadly disseminated to encourage participation by underrepresented groups in the sciences. The SCAR International Biology Symposium is a unique opportunity for US scientists to present their work and learn about the most recent findings on all aspects of Antarctic organisms and ecosystems research, to establish and strengthen international contacts, and to be actively involved in the development of new directions and the establishment of new frontiers in polar biology.
