An Invitation to Arctic and Northern Researchers, Indigenous peoples, Stakeholders, and all levels of Community and Government Decision-Makers.
Canada’s North is experiencing unprecedented change in its sea and terrestrial ice, permafrost and ecosystems under the triple pressures of climate change, industrialization and modernization. The impacts of these pressures can be seen on food and energy security, shipping, sovereignty, northern community health and well-being, and sustainable development and resource exploitation. All these issues have brought the North to the forefront of national and international agendas.
Building on the success of its previous Annual Scientific Meetings and International Arctic Change Conferences, the ArcticNet Network of Centres of Excellence announces the 14th ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, Canada.
Arctic researchers, Inuit, First Nations, Métis and Northern Community representatives, government and non-government organizations, students, and industry stakeholders are encouraged to attend.
As the largest Arctic & Northern research gathering held in Canada, the ArcticNet ASM is the ideal venue for:
- Access to the best possible research from all fields of Arctic and Northern science,
- Participation in discussions around the challenges and opportunities arising from climate change and modernization in the North
- Maintaining and developing collaborations among all those with interest in the Arctic and its peoples.
Please join us in Ottawa and help make the 2018 ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting a success!
