Welcome to PAGES' 2nd Young Scientists Meeting
The PAGES Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) held once every four years, is the premier event for early career researchers organized by PAGES. The conference is a stepping-stone for early-career researchers who want to develop their professional skills and expand their scientific network. The 2nd YSM was held on 11-12 Feb 2013 in Goa, India.
Take a quick look at this 3 minute video overview of the 2013 YSM.
The 2nd Young Scientists Meeting is being hosted by the National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research (NCAOR), an autonomous institution under the Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES, Government of India), which is a nodal organization for implementation of Indian polar research programmes.
The organization of the conference is shared between the hosts and the PAGES International Project Office. In addition, Scientific Program Committee will be responsible for the scientific program.

In Eos now three early-career scientists report on the PAGES 2nd YSM in Goa, and discuss future directions for the paleoclimate field, e.g. the need for network building, more quantitative proxy-based reconstructions, fast and efficient data sharing, securing funding, and communicating results.
