Antarctica New Zealand and the Royal Society of New Zealand are proud to announce a conference celebrating 50 years of New Zealand’s involvement in the Antarctic. The conference aims to present the successes of the past (International Geophysical Year to present day) and enthuse New Zealand about its future in Antarctica. This five-day conference combines invited talks from national and international speakers, presentations from artists, media and students, film screenings, panel discussions, poster sessions, and social functions.

In particular five key themes within Antarctic science and policy will be explored throughout the conference:
· Collaborations between New Zealand, USA, Italy and other nations working within the Ross Sea region;
· Future directions and issues;
· New Zealand innovations;
· Directions and achievements built on the International Geophysical Year; and
· Impacts and influences on the international arena.

We invite those with any interests in Antarctica to join us in this conference and celebration, to build on the past and work towards the future in the spirit of the International Polar Year (2007-2009).
