Oscar Bermudez, our Spanish SCADM member, has kindly invited SCADM to meet in conjunction with the VIII Spanish Symposium on Polar Research to be held in Palma de Mallorca, 7-9 September 2011. SCADM has gratefully accepted this invitation.
Most likely, SCAGI will also meet in conjunction with SCADM and we will have a similar setup as we had in Amsterdam in 2009, with joint plenary and separated parallel sessions. Mike Sparrow, SCAR Executive Director, plans to attend these meetings.
More information will follow.
Presentations from the SCADM meeting in Buenos Aires (SCADM-2, July - August 2010) are available in the Meetings and Reports section.

The SCAR Data and Information Strategy Implementation Plan has been published; copies can be downloaded from the Data & Information Strategy page, under "Documents".
As of January 2009 JCADM became a SCAR Standing Committee and was therefore renamed the Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management (SC-ADM). SC-ADM now reports to the SCAR Delegates Committee on Scientific Affairs only and no longer reports to COMNAP.
