1. Session Announcement and Call for Abstracts
American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting
9-13 December 2013
San Francisco, California

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) is currently accepting abstract
submissions for the 2013 Fall Meeting. The meeting will be held 9-13
December 2013 in San Francisco, California. Conveners of session A030,
entitled "Extratropical and High-latitude Storms, Teleconnections, and
the Changing Arctic Climate," invite abstract submissions from the
Arctic community.

Synoptic storms and large-scale teleconnections are prominent features
characterizing daily-to-decadal atmosphere and climate variability in
extratropics and high-latitudes. Storms bring extreme weather to the
extratropical and polar regions. Teleconnection patterns play modulating
roles in storm activity. Storms and teleconnections have demonstrated
systematic variation in their intensities, frequencies, and locations,
leading to alterations of feedback processes. This session will provide
a venue to present new progress on extratropical and high-latitude storm
activity, teleconnections, and associated physical feedback processes in
a changing Arctic climate, as well as ecosystem- and societal impacts.

The abstract submission deadline for all sessions is Tuesday, 6 August
2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time. The first author must be a
current 2013 AGU member. Details on abstract submission are available at:
http://fallmeeting.agu.org/2013/scientific-program/abstract-submission-p...

2. Registration Available
In the Spirit of Rovaniemi Process
2-4 December 2013
Rovaniemi, Finland

Organizers of the conference 'In the Spirit of Rovaniemi Process' remind
the Arctic community that registration is now available. The conference
will be held 2-4 December 2013 in Rovaniemi, Finland.

A Finnish initiative for Arctic environmental cooperation resulted in
the Rovaniemi Process and the adoption of the Arctic Environmental
Protection Strategy, signed in Rovaniemi in 1991. The success of the
Rovaniemi Process has inspired the City of Rovaniemi and the Arctic
Centre of the University of Lapland to organize a series of conferences,
of which the 2013 meeting will be the first.

The conference program will include keynote speeches, several scientific
sessions, and a special Arctic Cities Panel. Specific scientific
sessions are as follows:

- Rovaniemi Process: past, present, future (Plenary)
- Arctic responses to global environmental problems
- People and extractive industries
- Tourism in the Arctic
- The Arctic in global economy
- Climate change in the Arctic
- Indigenous peoples in cities
- Arctic global flows

3. Call for Papers
Arctic Frontiers 2014: Humans in the Arctic
19-24 January 2014
Tromso, Norway

Organizers of the 8th annual Arctic Frontiers conference announce a call
for papers. The meeting is entitled "Humans in the Arctic," and will be
held 19-24 January 2014 in Tromso, Norway.

The Arctic Frontiers conference is a central arena for discussions of
Arctic issues. The conference brings together representatives from
science, politics, and civil society to share perspectives on how
upcoming challenges in the Arctic may be addressed to ensure sustainable
development.

Arctic Frontiers 2014 will address two main themes, each with their own
two topical sessions. The 'Health, Environment, and Society' theme will
examine "Live, work and stay healthy in the Arctic" and "Health &
Environment in the Arctic." The 'Offshore Maritime Challenges' theme
will consider "Shipping & Offshore in the Arctic" and "Arctic Offshore
Search and Rescue (SAR)." Additional details on both themes and their
correlating sessions are available on the conference website, at:
http://www.arcticfrontiers.com.

Interested scientists are invited to submit abstracts to any of the four
sessions for both oral and poster presentations. Please note that Arctic
Frontiers is composed of a policy section and a scientific section. This
call for papers addresses only the scientific section, which will be
held 22-24 January 2014.

Submission deadline: 21 October 2013.

Further information, including registration and the complete call for
papers, is available at: http://www.arcticfrontiers.com.
