15th ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting
Event Type: Conferences and Workshops
When: 2 December 2019 to 5 December 2019
Where: Halifax Convention Centre, Nova Scotia, Canada
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 15th ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held at the Halifax Convention Centre in Halifax, 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, and,
- Maintaining and developing collaborations among all those with interest in the Arctic and its peoples.
We are accepting session proposals for the ASM2019 until Wednesday May 15, 2019.
