The conclusion of the meeting unfortunately also means that the 2016 SCAR Open Science Conference and Delegates Meeting has come to an end. Steven Chown of Australia has been elected as the new SCAR President, with Karin Lochte of Germany and Jefferson Simões of Brazil as Vice-Presidents. We wish them success in their new posts and know that SCAR will continue to be led well.
The team would like to thank Malaysia for being such wonderful hosts and for making everyone feel so incredibly welcome. The conference was a resounding success and has enabled everyone to grow both academically and on a personal level. The team now looks forward to the 2018 SCAR Open Science Conference to be held in Davos, Switzerland!
