2013 Arctic Science Summit Week; The Arctic Hub-Regional and Global Perspectives
The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2013 is a three day science symposium. The over-all theme of the symposium is “The Arctic Hub - Regional and Global Perspectives”.
The ASSW is an initiative of IASC. The purpose of the summit is to provide opportunities for coordination, collaboration and cooperation in all areas of Arctic science, and to combine science and management meetings to save on travel and time. The ASSW also offers insight into Arctic research undertaken by the host country. IASSA is one of IASC’s main partners in the organization of the ASSW.
A Science Symposium is organized as part of the ASSW every other year. These symposia create a platform for exchanging knowledge, cross fertilization and collaboration and attracts scientists, students, policy makers and other professionals from all over the world.
