The National Academies’ Polar Research Board, in collaboration with the Board on Earth Sciences and Resources and Ocean Studies Board, are seeking nominations for planning committee members to organize a workshop that will explore research and monitoring areas for U.S. involvement in the Fifth International Polar Year (IPY5).

International Polar Years are intended to make large advancements in scientific understanding by galvanizing the research community and fostering large-scale international coordination and national investments in polar science. IPY5 will be held in 2032-2033 and planning at the international level has recently gotten underway.

Using these suggestions, National Academies staff will be looking to build a committee of approximately 6-8 volunteer experts in addition to collecting information for potential speakers, participants, and peer reviewers for any publications resulting from the activity.

For more information about the call for nominations, please visit the nomination form. We invite you to submit all nominations by 19 July 2024.
