Organizers announce a call for abstracts for the Arctic Frontiers Science Conference entitled "White Space - Blue Frontiers".

Arctic Frontiers is an international arena on sustainable development in the Arctic. The conference addresses the management of opportunities and
challenges to achieve viable economic growth with societal and environmental sustainability. Arctic Frontiers 2017 will discuss the gaps in our knowledge about the Arctic oceans and the role these will play in the future.

The science section will address four main themes:

  • Bridging physical and biological processes in the Arctic Ocean
  • Pushing back the Frontiers: New approaches, new technologies, and new insights
  • Future Fisheries
  • Managing risk in policymaking and law

The call for papers is now open. All abstracts will be reviewed by members of the four scientific committees for rating of abstract quality and presentation content.

Deadline for abstract submission: Tuesday, 20 September 2016
