This solicitation focuses upon the integration of the data and software elements of advanced cyberinfrastructure. By integrating two major and long-running NSF program solicitations, Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) and Software Infrastructure for Sustained Innovation (SI2), under a single umbrella called Cyberinfrastructure for Sustained Scientific Innovation (CSSI), NSF seeks to enable funding opportunities that are flexible and responsive to the evolving and emerging needs in integrated data and software cyberinfrastructure.

A number of research groups are currently examining processes related to coupling between surface meltwater production and future Antarctic ice loss. Recent studies have suggested that surface hydrological systems in Antarctica may expand and proliferate this century. Meanwhile, numerical models of the Antarctic Ice Sheet that incorporate meltwater's impact on ice shelves, predict Antarctic contributions of up to a meter of global sea-level rise this century in response to atmospheric warming.
The cryosphere forms an integral part of the climate system of the Earth. Measuring the properties of the seasonal and perennial snow cover properties is therefore essential in understanding interactions and feedback mechanisms related to the cryosphere.
The 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM), co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS), will be held in Portland, Oregon. The OSM is an important venue for scientific exchange across broad marine science disciplines. Sessions will include all aspects of oceanography, especially multidisciplinary topics, as well as presentations that reflect new and emerging research on the global ocean and society, including science education, outreach and public policy.

Arctic research is too often siloed along disciplinary lines, reflecting traditional science education and research practice. Co-production of knowledge is increasingly being recognized by the scientific community at-large. However, in many instances the concept is being incorrectly applied. This webinar will highlight several successful examples of projects that bring Indigenous Knowledge holders and scientists together through a co-production of knowledge framework to create a holistic image of Arctic environmental changes.
To empower Indigenous scholars and provide a key opportunity for officials at U.S. government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and other groups working on Arctic issues to learn and integrate information/perspectives from multiple Arctic knowledge systems, ARCUS and ICC Alaska invite applications from and/or nominations of leading Arctic Indigenous scholars to travel to Washington D.C. Scholars are defined as experts within their own knowledge systems—no formal education is required.
The Department of Geography at Durham University is delighted to be hosting the 6th and final conference of the 'Palaeo-Arctic Spatial and Temporal Gateways' (PAST Gateways) network in Durham, United Kingdom from 16 to 20 April, 2018. As with previous conferences, it will include oral and poster presentations over 2.5 days and a mid-conference field trip.
