Reminder: US-SCAR/SCAR101

Thanks to those of you who have already registered for SCAR101 on Tuesday. All registrants will receive a reminder e-mail on Monday. This message is a second announcement to the US-SCAR listserv for those who have not yet registered.


Dear US Antarctic Scientist,

At each SCAR Open Science Conference (OSC) the US-SCAR Team organizes a side meeting called SCAR101 that is required for NSF Travel Grant recipients and open to any others who would like to attend. The meeting is followed by a US "Meet-and-Greet" social event at a local restaurant/bar. SCAR101 is an brief overview of SCAR structure and activities, including information on how to get involved and news about US-SCAR. The US-SCAR team and some NSF Antarctic program managers attend.

Since we will not be meeting in person for the 2020 SCAR OSC in Hobart, US-SCAR is organizing a Zoom session for SCAR101 on July 28 (Tuesday) 10:00-11:30 am PDT. This meeting is open to all US Antarctic scientists, and early career researchers are especially encouraged to attend. Presentation time will be short to allow for questions. In addition to a general overview of SCAR, discipline-based breakout groups will be set up during the meeting.

We hope you will be able to join us. Please complete this short registration form to receive Zoom information. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely, Deneb Karentz
US Delegate to SCAR
