The Swiss Polar Day gathers the Swiss scientific community around international keynote speakers active in the Arctic, Antarctic and high-altitude regions. It is also an opportunity to debate and give inputs on SPI’s activities and future priorities.
The one-day conference is open to all active or aspiring members of the Swiss academic community interested or experienced in polar regions. Students, young scientists and experienced researchers from all fields are warmly invited to network and contribute to the debate!
The programme is currently under preparation and will be published at the beginning of 2020.
Call for elevator pitches
The SPI organises an elevator pitch session for early-career scientists during the Swiss Polar Day 2020, to be held on 17 April 2020 at the University of Zurich.
The elevator pitch session (3 minutes and 1 slide per speaker) will be followed by a lunch break during which the speakers can engage with the participants of the conference. Tables will be arranged in the foyer where the lunch will take place for the speakers to further present their research to the audience of the conference and exchange with members of the Swiss polar community. There will however be no posters.
If you are interested in presenting your research, please let us know until 16 February with a brief outline of your talk (max 400 words). We very much hope you find this opportunity interesting and will agree to present your research during the event.
A selection panel will select the talks on the basis of scientific merit. The SPI will inform applicants by the end of February.
Submissions have to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Resources for preparing an elevator pitch presentation can be found for example here, here, and here.
Bookings are closed for this event.
