Deadline aproaching: Submit your abstract to the WCRP Open Science Conference!

We have just another week for abstract submissions to the WCRP Open Science Conference ( deadline on 14th March! The same deadline also applies to financial support requests and expressions of interest to attend the Early and Mid-Career Researchers Symposium (EMCR) Symposium.

We are building an exciting program, with many topical sessions ( that will bring together the work of the WCRP Core Projects and Lighthouse Activities, while reaching out to different communities in a transdisciplinary event. It also features many contributions from our partners,  in terms of scientific research and organizational co-design.

Highlighting also the poster clusters (, which are designed to bring together a community working on a specific topic within the broader conference themes. Posters will form a very important part of the OSC, particularly for early career researchers. In addition to dedicated on-site poster sessions, all posters will be posted on the hybrid platform poster gallery at least two weeks before the conference. Virtual poster sessions will be organized during these two weeks.

The EMCR Symposium programme is taking shape ( It will be an excellent opportunity for EMCRs to network with colleagues from different regions and disciplines. We highlight that EMCRs wanting to attend the Symposium must submit an abstract. Applicants will be notified of their selection in May 2023.

There are lots of promotional material on the OSC website (! Please make use of those and share the information within your networks.

Meet us in remarkable Rwanda! #WCRPOSC23
