1. Successful PAGES 3rd YSM and 5th OSM in Spain

PAGES thanks everyone involved in making both the 3rd Young Scientists Meeting and 5th Open Science Meeting a resounding success: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/1720-ysm-osm-success

Since returning home, several YSM participants have written blog posts for their respective universities: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/1722-ysm-osm-blogs

Access the OSM abstract book and program here: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/1712-5th-osm-program-abstracts
Access the YSM abstract book and program here: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/1713-3rd-ysm-program-abstracts

Plenary talk video recordings and other post-meeting material will be added to the OSM and YSM websites in the coming weeks: http://www.pages-osm.org/


2. Have your say! Take the PAGES survey

In case you missed it last month, PAGES has put together a survey to assess how scientists perceive PAGES and to identify its importance in their careers. All questions are optional and all answers are anonymous. Responses will be used as a basis for PAGES’ future goals and objectives. Read more and access the survey here: http://pastglobalchanges.org/news/all-news-items/9-latest-news/1699-pages-survey-2017


3. SSC member Braconnot at IPCC meeting

PAGES SSC member Pascale Braconnot was selected from more than 1000 nominations to take part in the Scoping Meeting for the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), from 1-5 May 2017 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The goal was to consider the outline of the Sixth Assessment Report at a Plenary session of the IPCC, provisionally scheduled for October 2017.
