Division 2013 Annual Meeting will be held 26-28 September 2013 in
Kodiak, Alaska. The 2013 theme is "Fisheries and Watersheds: Food
Security, Education and Sustainability."

Future concerns about Alaska's marine resources, particularly the
fisheries, revolve around the status of research and education and our
ability to wisely utilize this cornucopia. The 2013 Arctic Science
Conference will feature a variety of sessions focusing on marine
science, sustainability, circumpolar health, and interdisciplinary
education.

Abstract submissions will be accepted through May 1, 2013 at 5:00 p.m.
Alaska time. Please note that this deadline is considerably earlier than
in previous years. For information on submitting an abstract, please go to:

The tentative session topics are as follows:

- Marine Biology
- Fisheries
- Seafood Science
- Interdisciplinary, General and Applied Science
- Sustainability
- Science Education
- Community Science, K-12 Interactions, and Teacher Trainings will
also be offered

Abstract submission deadline: Wednesday, 1 May 2013 at 5:00 p.m. AKDT

3. Call for Abstracts
8th Antarctic Meteorological Observing, Modeling, and Forecasting
10-12 June 2013
Madison, Wisconsin

Organizers of the 8th Antarctic Meteorological Observing, Modeling, and
Forecasting Workshop (AMOMFW) announce a call for abstracts. The
workshop will be held 10-12 June 2013, at the University of Wisconsin's
Pyle Center in Madison, Wisconsin.

This workshop brings together those with research and
operational/logistical interests in Antarctic meteorology and
forecasting and related disciplines. As in the past, the annual
activities and status of the observing (e.g. Automatic Weather Stations)
and modeling (Antarctic Mesoscale Prediction System) efforts will be
addressed, and feedback and results from their user communities will be
solicited. More broadly, this workshop also is a forum for current
results and ideas in Antarctic meteorology, numerical weather
prediction, and weather forecasting from contributors around the world.
There will be discussions on the relationships among international
efforts and Antarctic forecasting, logistical support, and science.
Papers and posters on these topics are welcomed.

In addition to the workshop, there will be an informal icebreaker and
group dinner on 9 June 2013. Anyone interested in attending this portion
of the event must contact Matthew Lazzara (mattl@ssec.wisc.edu) no later
than 31 May 2013.

Abstract submission deadline: Wednesday, 15 May 2013.

submission guidelines, please go to:

4. Call for Abstracts
8th Circumpolar Agricultural Conference
UArctic Inaugural Northern Food Summit
29 September 2013 - 3 October 2013
Girdwood, Alaska

Organizers announce that the 8th Circumpolar Agricultural Conference and
the Univeristy of the Arctic Inaugural Northern Food Summit will be held
29 September 2013 - 3 October 2013. They will be convened at the Alyeska
Resort in Girdwood, Alaska.

The theme of the conference and summit is "Advancing food security and
sustainable agriculture in the circumpolar north; Building an integrated
vision, creating a process for sustainable food security in northern
communities." This event adopts the perspective that food security is a
driver to community development and sustainability, and takes a balanced
approach between traditional subsistence natural resource access and
agricultural production. Thus, rather than a commodity-specific
conference, it will bridge diverse but common key areas to support,
strengthen, and expand the food resources and northern community
development. The summit will discuss the barriers/challenges and develop
solutions/opportunities across key critical areas such as food
production, food access and distribution systems, sustainable practices,
land use planning, and food policy and safety issues.

Abstracts for posters relevant to all aspects of circumpolar agriculture
and food security in the north are welcome. The conference will consist
of invited plenary talks organized around featured topics followed by
formal poster sessions where presenters will provide a brief overview of
the content and purpose of their poster to organized groups. The
discussion generated will continue into a series of breakout sessions
organized around the following four objectives, which are detailed on
the conference website.

Abstract submission deadline: Wednesday, 1 May 2013.
