It is with great pleasure that ANTPAS announces our new Co-Chair and we would like to warmly welcome Marc Oliva from the University of Barcelona into the ANTPAS family. Marc will take over as Co-Chair from Gonçalo Vieira during the SCAR Biennial Conference in Davos (POLAR2018) in June of this year. Mauro Guglielmin, our second Co-Chair, will remain in his position. ANTPAS extends its gratitude and appreciation to Gonçalo for co-chairing ANTPAS for the previous years. He will remain a member of our Steering Committee.
We also warmly thank the four other candidates - Dan Morgan, Filip Hrbacek, William Berry Lyons and Zicheng Yu - for their participation and commitment to supporting ANTPAS by standing as candidates for the Co-Chair position. Their participation greatly increased the profile of our group and the interest in the voting process.
We wish the Steering Committee (existing and new members) all the very best for their term!
