The ACUNS Student Conference was established in 2003 in order to increase awareness of northern research in Canada and elsewhere and to provide the opportunity for emerging northern scholars to gather from around the world. It is a regular event with a thematic focus and it is largely organized by a committee of graduate students from the host institution.
ACUNS 2018 is organized by students for students from around the world. Our planning committee encompasses a wide range of backgrounds and Canadian Universities. The conference provides a unique opportunity for young researchers to meet and exchange ideas with others who share similar academic interests in the north, be they in science, social science or the humanities. Organizing the ACUNS Conference provides students with an invaluable opportunity to develop skills that will carry them through their academic careers, to forge links with government, private sector and community stakeholders, and make new national and international connections that ultimately lead to new partnerships for knowledge creation, both within academe and beyond.
The ACUNS Student Conference will be held at the University of Alberta. We are now accepting abstracts until September 1st. Abstracts should be no longer than 350 words long.
