Becas para investigación antartica 2016.

Tres de las principales organizaciones de investigación antártica anuncian oportunidades para investigadores que inician su carrera.
El Comité Científico de Investigación Antártica (SCAR), el Consejo de Administradores de Programa Nacional Antártico (COMNAP) y la Comisión para la Conservación de la Marina Antártica Recursos vivos (CCAMLR) están trabajando juntos para atraer  investigadores que inician su carrera, científicos, ingenieros y otros profesionales para fortalecer la capacidad y la cooperación internacional en campos como la el clima, la biodiversidad, la conservación, las humanidades y la astrofísica investigación.
 
ANUNCIO:
SCAR AND COMNAP ANTARCTIC RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS 2016 AND CCAMLR
SCIENTIFIC SCHOLARSHIPS 2016
Three leading Antarctic organisations today announce opportunities for
early-career researchers. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research
(SCAR), the Council of Managers of National Antarctic Programmes
(COMNAP) and the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine
Living Resources (CCAMLR) are working together to attract talented
early-career researchers, scientists, engineers and other professionals
to strengthen international capacity and cooperation in fields such as
climate, biodiversity, conservation, humanities and astrophysics
research.

SCAR and COMNAP have again joined forces to launch fellowships for
early-career researchers. The SCAR and COMNAP fellowships are worth up
to USD $15,000 each and up to six fellowships in total are on offer for
2016. The fellowships enable early-career researchers to join a project
team from another country, opening up new opportunities and often
creating research partnerships that last for many years and over many
Antarctic research seasons. The deadline for SCAR and COMNAP
applications is 1 June 2016.

The SCAR and COMNAP schemes are launched in conjunction with CCAMLR's
Scientific Scholarship Scheme. The CCAMLR Scholarship provides funding
of up to AUD $30,000 to assist early-career scientists to participate in
the work of the CCAMLR Scientific Committee and its working groups over
a period of two years. The objective of the scheme is to build capacity
within the CCAMLR scientific community to help generate and sustain the
scientific expertise needed to support the work of CCAMLR in the
long-term. The deadline for CCAMLR applications is 1 October 2016.

All three schemes are being jointly promoted by the three organisations.

41ª Asamblea Científica de COSPAR (resúmenes hasta el 12/2/16)

Is announced the following session at the 41st COSPAR Scientific Assembly, Istanbul, Turkey, 30 July – 7 August: session D2.1/E3.1 entitled as “Solar Transients: From Solar Origin to Earth Impact and the Outer Heliosphere”. This five-half-day-long session will cover a variety of topics, including (1) solar origin of transients: flares, CMEs, filament eruptions, coronal holes, particle acceleration and active regions that are potentially geo-effective, (2) CMEs, Sheaths, CIR and shocks evolution in the Interplanetary Space: observations, theory and simulation of CMEs, Sheaths, CIR from the Sun to the Earth and beyond, and transport and impact of solar and galactic energetic particles. (3) Campaign study of Earth-affecting events: focused study on carefully selected events, such as St. Patrick Day's event, standard or "textbook"-type events, stealth events etc. (4) Magnetic flux ropes and Bz Challenge: address the magnetic topology of solar transients, in particular, on the important Z-component of magnetic field. (5) Space weather forecast: emphasizing prediction techniques, their accuracy, validation and limitations for the operational purpose

A complete description of the event referred to above and abstract submission instructions are available on the Assembly web page at:
http://www.cospar-assembly.org.
The deadline of abstract submission is February 12, 2016.

WORKSHOP EN TÉCNICAS DE PROGRAMACIÓN CIENTÍFICA

7 al 18 de marzo de 2016

Facultad de Ciencias Exactas y Naturales de la UBA,

Ciudad Universitaria de Buenos Aires, Argentina,

El curso se desarrollará mediante presentaciones sobre conceptos
fundamentales por la mañana y, por la tarde, se realizarán sesiones
obligatorias de hands-on donde los alumnos pondrán en práctica los
temas desarrollados (consultar el programa preliminar en la página
web). Durante la segunda semana se propondrán proyectos grupales para
ser desarrollados por los participantes. El principal objetivo de estos
proyecto es el de poner a prueba globalmente los contenidos vistos
haciendo especial énfasis en el trabajo colaborativo.

Fecha límite de inscripción: 1 de Febrero de 2016
