IASC Working Groups are providing funding for Early Career Scientists (ECS) to attend the following IASC events:

The selection process is organized and coordinated by the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) in close cooperation with T-MOSAiC & NAG.
More Info: 

When: 10 December 2018 | Where: Ottawa (Canada)

T-MOSAiC is an IASC pan-Arctic, land-based program that would extend the activities that are currently in advanced planning for the IASC flagship program MOSAiC: ‘The Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate’, MOSAiC is a multinational year-round study (2019-2020) of the central Arctic Ocean to measure the coupling between atmosphere, sea ice, ocean and ecosystem processes.
The 3rd T-MOSAiC workshop will be divided into a closed session for the steering committee (8:00 - 12:00) and an open meeting in which all are welcome (13:00 - 17:00). The selected travel support recipients would be expected to attend the entire day. All travel support recipients have to be registered for the ArcticNet ASM meeting .

The review and selection process of travel support recipients is organized by the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) in close cooperation with T-MOSAiC. If you have any questions about the funding, please contact the APECS International Directorate office.
Applicants should be:

  • Early career researchers up to 5 years past PhD
  • Affiliated with an institution in an IASC member country
  • Have not received IASC travel support in the 18 months before December 2018
  • Have a research background that fits with one of the IASC working groups

Please note, that there will also be T-MOSAiC Workshop at the upcoming Arctic Science Summit Week 2019 (22 - 30 May 2019, Arkhangelsk, Russia) for which travel support will be announced in early 2019. It is only possible to receive travel support for either the workshop in Ottawa or in Arkhangelsk but not both.

When: 21 - 23 January 2019 | Where: Geilo (Norway)

The 2019 annual meeting will take place at Bardøla Hotel, Geilo, 21 - 23 January, 2019. The meeting will host a cross-cutting activity of the Marine and Cryosphere working groups of IASC: “The importance of Arctic glaciers for the Arctic marine ecosystem”.
The purpose of the meeting is:

  • to present and discuss new results on observations and modeling of the dynamics and mass budget of Arctic glaciers, including the Greenland ice sheet,
  • to provide a forum for glaciologists to present and discuss their work and to stimulate future collaborations,
  • to plan and coordinate field work with the aim of using available infrastructure and logistics in the most efficient way.


NAG welcomes contribution on all aspects concerning the mass balance and dynamics of Arctic glaciers and ice caps, including the Greenland Ice Sheet, and that utilize a broad range of methods, including field observations, remote sensing and modelling. NAG especially encourages submission to our cross-cutting activity.
Contributions in the form of oral presentations and or posters are welcomed. Presentation will be 15-20 minutes, including discussion. For those who bring a poster, time will be reserved in the program to give a short 2-3 minute introduction to the poster. Three days of talks and poster presentations, as well as open-forum discussions are planned.
