The Sixth International Symposium on Arctic Research (ISAR-6) will take place March 2 - 6, 2020 in Tokyo, Japan.

The rapid warming in the Arctic has been revealed, however, the precision of forecasting the future of climate and environmental change is still insufficient for utilization in sustainable development in the Arctic, while interests for resource utilization and economical activities are growing and progressing rapidly. The ISAR is aimed at presenting and discussing the scientific research results together with the Arctic researchers from all over the world, extracting and sharing issues to solve, and exploring the future of the Arctic. In ISAR-6, we are planning to discuss how the Arctic research has been progressing in the past ten years, and what we should do in the next ten years for the sustainable development.

ISAR-6 will consist of general sessions and special sessions. The general sessions will address the following topics: atmosphere; ocean and sea ice; rivers, lakes, permafrost and snow cover; ice sheets, glaciers and ice cores; terrestrial ecosystems; marine ecosystems;
geospace; laws, politics and economy; language, culture and health; engineering for sustainable development. Special sessions will be solicited on cross-cutting themes, until May 6, 2019.

We would like to invite you to attend ISAR-6, which will be held at Hitotsubashi Hall in Tokyo. It will be organized by the Japan Consortium of Arctic Environmental Research (JCAR) with the auspices of several institutions in Japan.

Young scientists and students are encouraged to attend by lower registration fee. Presented papers in ISAR-6 are eligible to submit to the Special Issue (tbd) as a peer reviewed fall paper in "Polar Science."
