The 2015 Polar Marine Science Gordon Research Conference (GRC) entitled “Polar Shelves and Shelf Break Exchange in Times of Rapid Climate Warming” will be held in Lucca, Italy from March 15-20, 2015. The GRCs provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies.
The Arctic Dialogue has been organized and initiated by the High North Centre for Business and Governance at Bodø Graduate School of Business, University of Nordland, and up to 2012, supported by HBW Resources (USA), to foster dialogue and increase information sharing between stakeholders in the Arctic.
Developments in Arctic Shipping Operations & Infrastructure
Wed, 03/18/2015 to Thu, 03/19/2015
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
The 6th Arctic Shipping Summit will focus on technological, operational, and logistical and challenges encountered by ship owners in harsh Arctic conditions. It will address key developments in transport and regulation in the Arctic as well as; commercial, communication and safety issues. Particular emphasis will be put on evaluating potential opportunities in the region. This summit, through presentations, roundtable discussion and case studies will examine practical solutions to Arctic shipping issues and present the latest innovations of technology in this specialized area.
The goal of this workshop is to summarize our fundamental understanding and description of small-scale processes in the coupled atmosphere-ocean-ice climate system at high latitudes in order to assess and reduce bias and uncertainties in weather prediction and climate models.
The workshop will be limited to ca. 90 participants. Limited travel funding will be available to support a selection of early career scientists (Post-docs within 5 years of PhD and PhD students).
The General Assembly 2015 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) is held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 12 – 17 April 2015. The assembly is open to the scientists of all nations.
ASSW is the annual gathering of international organizations engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research. The purpose of the summit is to provide opportunities for coordination, collaboration and cooperation in all areas of Arctic science. IASC's (International Arctic Science Committee) 25th anniversary will be celebrated during ASSW2015. The summit presents an opportunity to review IASC contributions and recognize those who have been instrumental in its founding, development and growth.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces a crosscutting/NSF-wide solicitation for Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE), which is an National Science Foundation (NSF) program that supports international activities across all NSF-supported disciplines. The primary goal of PIRE is to support high quality projects in which advances in research and education could not occur without international collaboration. PIRE seeks to catalyze a higher level of international engagement in the U.S. science and engineering community.
ARCUS is a nonprofit organization consisting of institutions organized and operated for educational, professional, or scientific purposes to advance arctic research and education.
