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 16–21 August 2015.
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 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.
Organizers of the 6th International Conference on Polar and Alpine Microbiology announce a call for early registration and abstract submission. The conference will be held 6-10 September 2015 in Ceske Budejovice, Czech Republic.
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 National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.
The Forum for Arctic Ocean Modeling and Observational Synthesis (FAMOS) is an international effort to focus on enhancing collaboration and coordination among arctic marine and sea ice modelers, theoreticians and observationalists based on a set of activities starting from generating hypotheses, to planning research included both observations and modeling, and to finalizing analyses synthesizing major results from the field studies and coordinated numerical experiments.
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 “In the Spirit of the Rovaniemi Process – Local and Global Arctic” conference will take place in 24-26 November 2015 in Rovaniemi, Lapland, Finland. With the theme "Local and Global Arctic" 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.
ARCUS is a nonprofit organization consisting of institutions organized and operated for educational, professional, or scientific purposes to advance arctic research and education.
