The theme "Our Ice Dependent World" is meant to address the impact of dwindling ice--terrestrial as well as ocean bound--on the complex interface of nature and society in all climatic zones of the world. In light of man-made aspects of climate change, the natural phenomena of ice are gradually becoming a concept of global politics affecting societal life in dramatic ways on a global scale. The 6th NRF Open Assembly will focus on the interrelationships of human and environmental dimensions of ice in a global context, and particularly in the Arctic, the Antarctic, and the Himalayans. Discussions are expected to highlight the role of research, the social relevance of science, and community in addressing the issues globally

The application for full travel funding for the participation of young researchers is open through Tuesday, 6 April 2010.
