Summary

The 8th Symposium on the Impacts of an Ice-Diminishing Arctic on Naval and Maritime Operations is co-hosted by the U.S. National Ice Center, the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, and the Woodrow Wilson Center.

This two-day event will feature experts speaking on Arctic marine operations, ocean and environmental issues, science, policy, law, and governance. Participants will learn about the impacts of an ice-diminishing Arctic Ocean on marine transportation, resource development, scientific research, federal, state, local, and international operations, and policy implications in the rapidly evolving Arctic. The symposium will be webcast and recorded, and a reception will be held at the conclusion of the first day. Participants are invited (and encouraged!) to present posters on science, technology, operations, or other related subjects.

Abstract submissions are due by July 10th and can be completed here.
