This year among the speakers are numerous researchers from UArctic Member Institutions.

The GRC is an international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk, and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The theme of this year’s conference is "Integrating Ocean Physics and Biogeochemistry to Assess Polar Ecosystem Sensitivity to Rapid Change."

The GRC on Polar Marine Science will bring leading scientists together to present and discuss frontier research in Arctic and Antarctic marine research. One-minute oral summaries of posters will allow presenters to address the entire group, promoting enhanced interactions, in-depth discussions and brainstorming. A GRC "Power Hour" will be held to help address the challenges women face in polar science and support the professional growth of women in our communities by providing an open forum for discussion and mentoring.

A Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) will be held on the weekend prior to the GRC. The GRS will provide a forum for graduate students and postdoctoral scientists to present their work in a peer-to-peer setting. The participants will discuss cutting-edge aspects of their research, and have the opportunity to build collaborative relationships with other early career researchers as well as with established scientists and mentors. Some financial support is available and will be offered in priority to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows attending both the GRC and the preceding GRS.

Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
