APECS is an international and interdisciplinary organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early faculty members, educators, and others with interests in Polar Regions and the wider cryosphere. Our aims are to stimulate interdisciplinary and international research collaborations and develop effective future leaders in polar research, education, and outreach.
APECS' goals include creating opportunities for the development of innovative, international, and interdisciplinary collaborations among current early career polar researchers as well as recruiting, retaining, and promoting the next generation of polar enthusiasts. Specifically, we aim to:
Create a network of polar researchers across disciplines and national boundaries to meet, share ideas and experiences, and develop new research directions and collaborations
Provide the opportunity for career development for both traditional and alternative polar and cryosphere professions
Promote education and outreach as an integral component of polar research and stimulate future generations of polar researchers
