1. REMINDER: Registration Available
Arctic in Rapid Transition Science Workshop
23-26 October 2012
Sopot, Poland

Organizers announce that registration is now open for the Arctic in
Rapid Transition (ART) Science Workshop. The workshop will be held at
the Institute of Oceanology in Sopot, Poland, from 23-26 October 2012.

The ART workshop will address the challenge of integrating modeling and
observations in order to identify linkages and feedbacks between
atmosphere-ice-ocean forcings and biological-geochemical processes that
are key to ecosystem function, land-ocean interactions and to the
productive capacity of the past, present and future Arctic Ocean.

The workshop is jointly organized with the Association of Polar Early
Career Scientists (APECS) and will propose training sessions on
theoretical and practical aspects of marine sciences, as well as plenary
talks and breakout sessions to discuss and initiate the writing of
collaborative papers lead by both early career and senior scientists.
The ART-APECS Workshop is open to scientists who share a common interest
in improving our current understanding and projective capacity of the
causes and implications of changing physical conditions on arctic marine
ecosystems on multiple time-scales. Limited funding is available for
participants that will express interest in contributing to the ART
scientific framework through the registration form.

Registration deadline: 20 July 2012.

More information on the preliminary agenda, venue, list of mentors, and
invited speakers, as well as the registration form, can be found on the
ART-APECS Workshop webpage:

2. Seminar Available
Gateway to the Arctic
17-19 October 2012
Bremerhaven, Germany

Organizers announce that a seminar entitled "Gateway to the Arctic" will
be held 17-19 October 2012 in Bremerhaven, Germany. Applications will be
accepted through Monday, 30 July 2012.

The seminar intends to bring young scientists together from different
disciplines of natural and social sciences. It will cover aspects of
intensive exchange through a series of lectures and workshops addressing
the latest research advances in various fields of arctic research. The
casual and interactive meeting format will allow the participants and
partner institutions to engage in networking and developing new
collaborations. Looking at two focus regions in the Arctic -- Siberia
and Alaska -- organizers would like to work on how to improve and
promote interdisciplinary research activities.

A limited number of travel stipends for young researchers are available.
To apply, please complete the application process detailed on the
seminar website.

Application deadline: Monday, 30 July 2012.
