Calendar of Events

The Arctic Calendar is an online, searchable calendar of major meetings and events relevant to the arctic science, education, and policy communities. It serves as a community resource for tracking and publicizing major arctic events and conferences, and to help avoid conflicting meeting dates. The Calendar is maintained and hosted by the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS; http://www.arcus.org ) in collaboration with the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC; http://www.iasc.info)

We encourage anyone organizing a meeting to submit the event for inclusion on the calendar to maintain the calendar's usefulness as a communication and planning tool. We also welcome other arctic organizations to link to the Arctic Calendar. Events can be submitted through the online form at: http://www.arcus.org/events/arctic-calendar/submit or by emailing calendar [at] arcus.org.
