Project management in extreme environments

In June 2009, the University of Quebec at Montreal (UQAM) hosted a 2-day research conference under the theme of Project Management and Polar Expeditions: What Can We Learn? It brought together researchers from France, Quebec, and Sweden representing a diversity of disciplines (e.g., project management, logistics, psychology, sociology, and anthropology). The conference was held under the umbrella of the Project Management Research Chair of UQAM and the Research Center on Management in Clermont-Ferrand of Clermont University and Clermont Graduate School of Management. This research center has been working for more than 10 years on polar expeditions.
