Biosciences in Polar and Alpine Research workshop will be held on November 24th, 2016 at the Faculty of Science, University Campus Bohunice, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic. General intention of the meeting is to provide a platform for data presentation, exchange of professional knowledge and formation of interdisciplinary approaches in polar research.
Preliminary sections of the workshop comprise:
- Polar and Alpine autotrophs, their ecophysiology and significance for functioning of ecosystems
- Polar and Alpine heterotrophic organisms – State of art and current questions in polar microbiology
- Physical, chemical factors forming Polar and Alpine environments – niches for biological colonization
- Ecology, physiology, molecular biology and genetics of Polar and Alpine animals
- Man and polar regions (expeditions, social life, education and popularization, outreaches, interlinks)
Main scope of the workshop is the application of short- and long-term monitoring in the field, as well as experimental biological work in a laboratory in recent polar research. Apart of interdisciplinarity of the meeting, our intention is to promote co-operation between particular teams working in the field of polar research. Last but not least, presentation of recent results of Czech and international polar science is main goal as well as promotion of professional information transfer to students and early career young scientists.
Deadline for abstract/paper submission is October 10th, 2016.
