We invite you to participate in the ARCUS 14th Annual Meeting and Arctic Forum 2002 in Arlington, VA. All sessions will be held at the Hilton Arlington & Towers in Arlington, VA. In addition to highlighting important arctic research through the 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.
You are invited to submit an abstract to present one or more posters at the Arctic Forum, scheduled for 16-17 May. The Arctic Forum 2002 is chaired by Dr. Sue Moore, of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration National Marine Mammal Laboratory, and will include invited and contributed talks by arctic researchers representing diverse disciplines, projects, and programs. This year the Arctic Forum will focus on biocomplexity in the Arctic. Dr. Rita Colwell, Director of the National Science Foundation, will give the keynote presentation on Thursday morning, 16 May 2002. The student recipients of the Sixth 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 will be available soon.
