In celebration of 100 years, the National Park Service Alaska Region will host the Centennial Science and Stewardship Symposium at the University of Alaska Fairbanks on October 19 – 20, 2016. The symposium will highlight how science and scholarship have shaped the past 100 years of national park management, and provide a forward look at the next century of collaborative science and scholarship in Alaska’s national parks. Sessions will feature research and stewardship in national parks and celebrate the partnerships essential to park management.
Wood Center, Multi-Level Lounge, First floor, University of Alaska Fairbanks: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AKDT
All attendees of the National Park Service Symposium are invited to visit with members of the ARCUS staff and discuss ideas about how to better connect and support Alaska, northern, and Arctic research and promote informed decision making. Please follow the link above for more information.

The seminar will be hosted and financially supported by the Centre for Polar Studies - University of Silesia and Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences, Poland under the umbrella and with support of the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), through its Network on Arctic Glaciology, and the Committee of Polar Research Polish Academy of Sciences.
The U.S. Permafrost Association (USPA) invites applications from U.S. based students and post-graduate researchers for travel grants to attend the 2016 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meetings in San Francisco.
The 44th annual North West Glaciologists meeting will be at University of Washington in Seattle this year.
Since NWG is the original informal and minimally organized regional meeting about ice in North America, our 2016 web page is still being updated, but you should be able to find most of the essential information there for making your plans.
We look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new friends in Seattle in October.
Organizers of the Association for the Science of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) 2017 conference, entitled "Mountains to the Seas" invite abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations. The conference will convene 26 February to 3 March 2017 in Honolulu, Hawaii.
This webinar will include a discussion of the 2016 Sea Ice Outlook (SIO) with a focus on the lessons learned from this season, what was new this season, and what areas could be improved for the future. Presentations will include a review and analysis of the outlooks contributed from 2008 to 2016, discussion of the 2016 summer sea-ice conditions that lead to the minima this year, and discussion of the SIO success and challenges at the local scale Time for community discussion will follow the presentations.
