10th November South Georgia: new and future science.
We will be holding a full day event at the British Antarctic Survey’s new conference centre in Cambridge. This will start with a keynote presentation by Prof Martin Collins, the former Chief Executive of the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands which will be followed by a series of presentations by scientists who are actively involved in research. The presentations will be pitched for the membership of the Association who have a wide range of knowledge and expertise relevant to the Island but not all of whom are scientists.
The progamme of presentations will be accompanied by an exhibition of artwork and photographic images related to South Georgia.
Full details of the programme are currently being prepared and will be announced soon together with information about registration and domestic arrangements.
