2000 Annual Meeting and Arctic Forum | Introduction
16-19 May 2000
Holiday Inn Capitol
We invite the arctic research community to participate in the ARCUS 12th Annual Meeting and Arctic Forum 2000 in Washington D.C. All sessions will be held at the Holiday Inn Capitol in Washington D.C. In addition to highlighting important arctic research through our annual science symposium, Arctic Forum, the ARCUS annual meeting serves to gather member institution representatives, the board of directors, and the staff of ARCUS together with other members of the arctic research community and key agency personnel and policy makers.
We invite you to submit an abstract to present a poster at the Arctic Forum, scheduled for Wednesday, 17 May and Thursday, 18 May. The Arctic Forum will be chaired by Dr. Wieslaw Maslowski, of the Naval Postgraduate School, and will include invited and contributed talks by arctic researchers representing diverse disciplines, projects, and programs. This year the Arctic Forum will focus on the environmental changes observed and modeled in the Arctic and their interactions with people and the global climate. The keynote address will be given by Warren M. Washington of the Climate and Global Dynamics division of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The four student recipients of the fourth annual ARCUS Award for Arctic Research Excellence will present their award-winning papers during the Forum as well. A detailed program for the Arctic Forum is available.
Please fill out an abstract form if you wish to submit poster presentation and fill out the meeting registration form if you plan to attend any of the ARCUS meetings, the Arctic Forum, or the banquet. We may be able to arrange to display your poster, even if you cannot attend the meeting.
