The 26th International Symposium on Polar Sciences

Finding solutions to global issues: Polar science and technology

May 12‐13, 2020
Korea Polar Research Institute
Incheon, Republic of Korea

FIRST CIRCULAR

The 26th International Symposium on Polar Sciences organized by Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) will be held on May 12‐13, 2020 in Incheon, Republic of Korea. This symposium aims to bring polar scientists together to discuss their research findings and to promote international collaborative research. We cordially invite you to share your knowledge and perspectives on future outlook in polar research.

Theme

Humanity is undergoing dramatic global climate changes and facing global issues such as extreme weather, rising sea levels, food and water shortage. ‘IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate’ has also expressed concern about rapid sea level rise and the possibility of increasing frequency of extreme sea level events in the near future. The polar region is the place that holds the oldest climate records and shows the environmental changes earlier and clearer than any other place on earth. During the symposium, we will highlight the findings in polar science and technology to understand the changes we are currently experiencing in the global perspective and to find the solutions to those global issues.

Proposed Themes for Sessions

The following 6 themes for sessions are proposed;
  • Polar climate and its global perspective
  • Earth’s cryosphere and sea level change
  • Advances in understanding the sea ice variability and changes in polar oceans
  • Research for living organism adapted to the polar environment
  • Innovative technologies in polar sciences
  • Integrated approaches to climate change: IPCC SR1.5 and SROCC

Side Meetings

Side meetings will be organized during the symposium to provide a platform for exchanging ideas with experts on appropriate themes as proposed. If you wish to hold a meeting, please contact us at symposium@kopri.re.kr
