ArcticNet's 9th Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM2013) will be held from 9 to 13 December 2013 at The World Trade and Convention Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
As the largest annual Arctic research gathering held in Canada, ArcticNet's ASM is the ideal venue to showcase results from all fields of Arctic research and stimulate networking and partnership activities. Over 500 participants are expected again this year.
Building on the success of previous ASMs, the ASM2013 welcomes the participation of researchers, students, policy and decision makers, representatives of government and non-government organizations, the private sector, northern stakeholders and media to address the global challenges and opportunities arising from climate change and modernization in the Arctic.
The ASM2013 will also be hosting the second annual Arctic Inspiration Prize Ceremony, where one to five Prizes and associated awards totalling $1 million will be presented.
