Video Teasers for IGS Cambridge

Symposium attendees with abstracts accepted for poster presentations are invited to submit <2-minute teaser videos (see Frostbyte-style for examples) to help effectively share their research methods and outcomes with the full symposium audience. Videos will be shown over breaks on the first day of the symposium and archived online by the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS). Presenters will maintain full rights to the use of their videos, making them a great resource for early-career scientists, but everyone is welcome to participate.

The videos will be voted-on during the poster session and the winner will be awarded a free publication in the Journal of Glaciology. The “best” video will be defined as the video that gives the most informative and creative overview of the poster.

If you are interested in submitting a video, please indicate your interest by checking the box on the 'Delegate' page when you are registering. Details regarding the video submission process, including the submission deadline, will be emailed on a later date.

Second circular is now available as a PDF file
