--------------------
The 38th Annual International Arctic Workshop will be held 5-7 March
2008, at the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR),
University of Colorado at Boulder. The meeting is open to all interested
in the Arctic and will consist of a series of talks and poster sessions
covering all aspects of high-latitude environments, past and present.
Previous Arctic Workshops have included presentations on arctic and
Antarctic climate, archeology, environmental geochemistry,
geomorphology, hydrology, glaciology, soils, ecology, oceanography, and
Quaternary history.

This workshop has grown out of a series of informal annual meetings
sponsored by INSTAAR and other academic institutions worldwide. In
keeping with this tradition, there are no formalized topics and the
workshop is organized around themes developed from the abstracts
submitted for presentation. Organizers can accommodate specific themes
and arrange small group meetings, however. Attendees are requested to
identify any special topics or needs by contacting workshop organizers
at: ArcticWS@colorado.edu.

Student participation is a vital component of the workshop. With support
from the National Science Foundation, a limited number of students
giving a talk or poster will receive financial assistance, including
registration and hotel support.

Early registration and submission of abstracts for oral and poster
presentations will be available until 13 February 2008 at:
http://instaar.colorado.edu/AW
