When: 21 October 2014 to 24 October 2014

Where: Plouzané, France

More information: 


The Arctic in Rapid Transition initiative (ART, http://www.iarc.uaf.edu/ART), an official IASC network (http://www.iasc.info), the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS, www.apecs.is), and the European Institute for Marine Studies (IUEM, France, http://www-iuem.univ-brest.fr) organize a joint workshop on “Integrating spatial and temporal scales in the changing Arctic System: towards future research priorities” (ISTAS workshop), October 21-24 2014 in Plouzané, France.

This international workshop aims at discussing the integration of spatial and temporal scales to better understand the changing Arctic system as a whole, by including various Arctic research fields: physical oceanography, sea-ice, biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems functioning, marine biodiversity, land-ocean interactions, ocean-atmosphere exchanges and ocean acidification, paleo-reconstruction and biological archives, and social sciences. Results of the workshop will feed into the ICARP III (3rd International Conference on Arctic Research Planning) meeting in Toyama, Japan in April 2015 (http://icarp.arcticportal.org/).

Abstract submission and registration are now open under
Please register and submit your abstract as soon as possible as the amount of space is limited.

Limited funding will be available for early career scientists.
