Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) is an annual gathering of international organizations involved in Arctic research. It is designed to strengthen collaborations across academia, government agencies, local communities, industry, non-governmental organizations and other Arctic stakeholders.

ASSW2020 is supported by the Icelandic Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, the Ministry for the Environment and Natural Resources, and the Town of Akureyri. ASSW2020 is an important part of the Icelandic Chairmanship of the Arctic Council. Most of the events will take place in the facilities of the University of Akureyri.

During ASSW2020 there will be three days dedicated to IASC & Arctic science community meetings (28-30 March); ASSW2020 will also feature the "Science in a Sustainable Arctic" meeting and the 5th Arctic Observing Summit. The entire Arctic community is encouraged to use ASSW as a venue for bringing together their organizations, collaborations, and teams. ASSW organizers provide the logistical support and your meeting attendees only have to register for ASSW2020 and show up.

The application deadline is 29 November 2019, and a draft program is expected to be ready in mid-December.
