May 19th is drawing near, and we wanted to remind you of the opportunity to register for the annual Polar Symposium. This whole day event in the Hague brings together the state of the art of polar science, policy, society and art. Please be aware that the registration closes on May 12th! Link for registration and information is at the bottom of this post. The program leaflet can be found below. 

Please also be aware that if you have registered for the postponed events in December or March, you will need to register for the actual edition in May. Did you already register for the event on the 19th? Excellent! If you’ve chosen to present a paper, you will be contacted with a briefing on what to print, dimensions, what to bring, etc.
