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 2nd World Seabird Conference (2ndWSC) will build on the progress and success of the 1 st World Seabird Conference and will once again place seabirds on the global stage. Our goal is to provide a venue for seabird scientists from across the globe to gather with their colleagues and discuss research, conservation, and innovative technology as they relate to the study of seabirds and their marine environment.
On behalf of the International Advisory Committee and the Local Organizing Committee, we are pleased to announce the Second Polar Data Forum (PDF II) which will be held 27-29 October 2015, at the University of Waterloo, Canada.
In commemoration of its 80th anniversary, the American Polar Society will join with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to bring together world-class leaders in science and diplomacy to discuss the role of polar oceans in global climate change.
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) will convene an interdisciplinary conference of early career scientists working on Arctic issues. 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 organizers have issued a call for abstracts, due 5/31/15, on the following topics:
We are pleased to announce the 9th Graduate Climate Conference, which will be held November 6th-8th in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
The goal of this graduate student-organized conference is to assemble a broad range of talks and posters featuring high-quality student research focused on past, present, and future climate, its changes, and their impacts. We encourage students at all stages of their graduate career to apply, and we seek abstracts on climate research from a variety of disciplines from the sciences, engineering, and humanities, including:
The Arctic Ocean and its adjacent seas and coasts are currently undergoing unprecedented changes reflected in summer sea ice decline, warming, increased Atlantic water heat transport, freshening, retreat of glaciers, and ocean acidification. These changes are affecting the chemical and physical environment such as stratification, nutrient availability, air-sea gas exchange and light conditions. Consequently, these changes will impact the primary and secondary production and subsequently the whole marine ecosystem.
The organizers would like to announce that registration and abstracts submission for the 1st Central European Polar Meeting are now possible. The meeting will be held from 10-13 November 2015 at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna, Austria.
The Arctic Circle will, in addition to the annual October Assemblies in Iceland, convene smaller and more specialized forums in other countries. In cooperation with Singapore Maritime Institute and the Government of Singapore an Arctic Circle Forum will take place in Singapore on November 12th 2015.
