CALL for GRANTS for the 7th International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration

Call for Grants for the 7th International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration

Ushuaia, Argentina, 13-17 January 2020

The International Association of Geomorphologists offers 2 grants of 500 euros to favour the participation of Young Geomorphologists* (Planetary Geomorphologists) from Latin America but not mainly based in Argentina in the 7th International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration organized by the Planetary Science Institute- York University and the Space Research and Planetary Sciences-University of Bern, among others, with the support of the Centro Austral de Investigaciones Cientificas (CADIC-CONICET).

Secondly, the call is extended to other YGs* (Planetary Geomorphologists) from the National Members of IAG with a regular position (annual fees have been paid and are therefore listed on our website).

Applications from candidates who already achieved one or more IAG grants totalling 500 euros or more in the past 3 years will not be eligible.

The Conference is the latest in a continuing series of conferences intended to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas regarding the polar regions of Mars. This group is international and interdisciplinary, and welcomes any interested scientist with relevant theoretical, experimental, or field experience. The focus will also be on terrestrial analogs that can enhance the interpretation of remote sensing data from Mars, and on concepts for future missions.
