Christchurch, New Zealand


XIII SCAR Biology Symposium will take place in Ōtautahi, Aotearoa (Christchurch, New Zealand).

Join many of the world’s leading scientists and early career researchers in Antarctic Biology and Ecology for the first face-to-face SCAR meeting in 3 years.

This meeting will offer four days of invited keynotes, plenaries, and concurrent sessions, with a mid-week break of excursions to allow attendees to enjoy some spectacular parts of New Zealand’s South Island.

Satellite meetings and workshops will be held during the weekends before and after the meeting. The conference will be enriched by the tikanga (traditions) and mātauranga (knowledge) of New Zealand’s indigenous Māori people and a true dedication to sustainability.

Deadline for Abstracts: 21 March 2023
