The University of California-Irvine invites applications for a workshop entitled Transdisciplinary Research on the Changing Arctic and Its Global Impacts: Enhancing Capacity for Convergence Science. This workshop will convene 31 October-1 November 2019 in Irvine, California.

Organizers invite participation of researchers from diverse disciplines across the United States who would like to undertake research on Arctic change and/or its global impacts as envisioned in the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Navigating the New Arctic (NNA) Big Idea. The workshop will offer training activities to enhance capacity to do so in a manner that deeply integrates the social and behavioral sciences with the natural, physical and engineering sciences, and other disciplines and engages local communities in meaningful collaborations. The workshop will cover both research in the Arctic and its impacts elsewhere.

Funds are available to support travel (including transportation, meals and accommodation) for up to 40 participants on-site.

Pending resources, workshop presentations will be live-streamed, and individuals will have the option to attend virtually (registration required).

Applications are invited from researchers at all stages of career development, and individuals new to research in the Arctic are especially encouraged to apply.
