This will be a joint conference with IASC (International Arctic Science Committee), hosted by the Swiss Committee on Polar and High Altitude Research in Davos, Switzerland. The Conference will include SCAR, IASC and other business and satellite meetings, an Open Science Conference and the SCAR Delegates' Meeting.
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
The “In the Spirit of the Rovaniemi Process – Connecting Local and Global” conference will take place in 24-26 November 2015 in Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland. With the theme "Connecting Local and Global" the conference in 2015 will continue the discussion on the latest developments in the Arctic with focus on both the global developments and their consequences on the local level, as well as the interaction of the global, regional and local levels in the Arctic.
The Association of Canadian Universities for Northern Studies (ACUNS) 11th Annual Student Conference will take place November 5-8, 2015. The Arctic Institute of North America and the University of Calgary will co-host this meeting. The meeting, held every three years, is cross-disciplinary and diverse, and our goal is to welcome 200 to 400 international participants working on all Arctic disciplines and themes.
The Eleventh Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (CHAGS 11) will be taking place in Vienna from September 7-11, 2015. CHAGS 10 - held at Liverpool in June 2013 - has put hunter-gatherer studies back at the centre of scholarly debates and CHAGS 11 will make sure that the momentum is not being lost.
The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of anywhere else on Earth. Recent monitoring indicates that this is having major impacts on the extent and distribution of ice masses, sea ice, permafrost, and Arctic ecosystems. Environmental change in this sensitive region has implications not only for the Arctic itself, but also for the global climate system. This session explores the current status of climate change in the Arctic and the approaches that are being used to manage these changes for local environments, communities, and industries.
We invite people to participate in the second international conference for "Polar Climate and Environmental Change in the Last Millennium", to be held in Torun, Poland, August 24-26, 2015. The aim of the conference is to present scientific achievements, detect gaps in the field of the historical climatology of the area of polar regions based on early meteorological observations, history, dendroclimatology, paleolimnology, geophysics, geomorphology and other sources.
The International Glaciological Society (IGS) will hold an International Symposium on 'Contemporary ice-sheet dynamics: ocean interaction, meltwater and non-linear effects' in 2015, in Cambridge, UK, from 17–22 August 2015.
