The conference will bring together individuals and teams involved in the collection, processing, analysis, and use of observations in the Arctic – from academia, agencies, industry, and other organizations.

The goals of the meeting are to:

  • Present and discuss scientific findings and advances resulting from Arctic observing projects funded by U.S. agencies and organizations;
  • Review operational and technological achievements of observing programs funded through local, state, and federal agencies and private and non-profit organizations;
  • Explore how well new scientific achievements meet science and mission objectives; and
  • Further define and strengthen collaborations.

Arctic Observing Open Science Meeting will be 2.5 days and held at the Hyatt at Olive 8 in Seattle, Washington. The meeting will be convened as a combination of plenary talks, parallel science sessions, and a poster session.

Co-chairs of the meeting are Craig Lee (University of Washington), Matthew Shupe (Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, University of Colorado and NOAA Earth Systems Research Laboratory), and Cathy Wilson (Earth and Environmental Sciences Division, Los Alamos National Laboratory). The full Organizing Committee is currently being convened.

The U.S. National Science Foundation Arctic Observing Network (NSF AON) program is providing funding for core meeting activities. Co-sponsorship is sought for additional activities, including web streaming, poster session, student/early career researcher travel scholarships, and development of meeting products.

Further information and online registration will be available in the coming weeks.
