The Arctic Futures 2050 Conference Organizing Committee invites poster abstracts for the Arctic Futures 2050 Conference. This conference will convene 4-6 September 2019 at the National Academies of Sciences in Washington, D.C.

The Arctic Futures 2050 Conference-convened by the Study of Environmental Arctic Change (SEARCH)-will be an international conference designed to enhance collaboration between Arctic scientists from many disciplines, diverse Indigenous knowledge holders, and policy makers from all levels of government.

Poster sessions will be held during each day of the conference as an integral part of the agenda and expansion of the plenary sessions.

Posters will offer opportunities to provide specific information relevant to the main themes of the conference, including:

  • Knowledge of the Arctic environment derived from field observations, Indigenous observations, laboratory measurements, or modeling;
  • Policy initiatives, activities, and methods—from all levels of government;
  • Descriptions of what we need to know to respond to a changing Arctic from Indigenous, scientific, or policy perspectives;
  • Tools or processes for informing policy with science or Indigenous Knowledge;
  • Tools or processes for informing knowledge holders and producers about policy needs;
  • Approaches that have supported collaboration across disciplines; and
  • Ideas for addressing obstacles that limit collaboration across disciplines and geographies.

Other topics relevant to collaborations needed to effectively respond to a changing Arctic environment are welcome.

Those interested in presenting their work through another format, such as art or another creative platform, may email AF2050posters [at] arcus.org.
