A “Young Researchers Workshop” will take place at the XI. International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP 2016). This workshop is organized as a joint effort of PYRN (Permafrost Young Researchers Network), APECS (Association of Polar Early Career Scientists), the young researcher representatives of the USPA (United States Permafrost Association), and ADAPT (Arctic Development and Adaptation to Permafrost in Transition).
The workshop aims at providing opportunities to young researchers to learn and build interdisciplinary knowledge:
- how to get published in scientific journals (professional trainer)
- practical methods and
- essential soft skills.
For detailed information on the Young Researchers Workshop program, please download the program herehere.
The soft skills portion, presenting and sharing knowledge about the Arctic and Antarctic permafrost regions, will be a focus. To achieve this, the participants will enter into dialogue and exchange in thematic break-out sessions.
