The 2017 GRC on Polar Marine Science "Understanding Polar Ecosystem Change Through Time Series Observations, Technological Advances, and Biophysical Coupled Modeling" will bring together leading investigators in Antarctic and Arctic marine research. Using a tradition of excellence facilitated by the Gordon Research Conferences (GRC), participants will present and discuss cutting edge interdisciplinary polar science observations, technological advancements and biophysical modeling activities associated with polar time series studies.
Organizers of the Gordon Research Seminar in Polar Marine Science 2017 announce a call for abstract submissions. The seminar will convene 25 March 2017 in Ventura, California.
Abstract submission deadline: 25 December 2016.
The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present. It stimulates the exchange of new data and cutting edge ideas among young fellows.
An international conference on high latitude dust will take place at the University of Iceland, Reykjavik from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th May 2017. This will be the first such conference and focuses on all aspects of dust which is sourced from within the high latitudes (North of 50 deg. N and south of 40 deg. S). The meeting will include optional field excursions in southern Iceland.
The North Pacific Research Board announces the 2017 Request for Proposals (RFP). The 2017 RFP has an anticipated funding amount of $4.55 million. This RFP is similar in form and content to past NPRB RFPs, with research categories structured around the 2005 NPRB Science Plan.
Applicants are encouraged to consult the 2017 RFP for further details on research priorities for this year.
With approximately 24,000 attendees in 2015, AGU’s Fall Meeting is the largest Earth and space science meeting in the world. 2016 will mark Fall Meeting’s 49th year as the premiere place to present your research; hear about the latest discoveries, trends, and challenges in the field; and network with colleagues that can enhance your career.
The NSF Arctic Natural Sciences Program will hold a Town Hall meeting during the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California. The meeting will be held Thursday evening, 15 December 2016, from 7:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. in the Arctic Community Meeting Room, Foothill E, in the San Francisco Marriott Marquis.

Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC): The Next 5 Years of Federally-funded Arctic Research
Moscone West, Room 2003, San Francisco, California, 12:30 p.m. PST
Conveners will provide an overview of the science and policy drivers, scope, and research goals of the Arctic Research Plan FY2017-2021. The Research Plan describes Arctic research priorities of the Federal Government that are expected to benefit from interagency collaboration during the period FY2017-2021. The town hall will provide an opportunity for the research community to learn about the Research Plan and how they can engage in its implementation.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announces a roundtable meeting with Arctic Research Program Director, Jeremy Mathis. This roundtable will convene from 12:40-1:30 p.m. PST in the Arctic Community Meeting Room Foothill E on the second floor of the San Francisco Marriott Marquis.
In addition to the annual October Assemblies in Iceland, the Arctic Circle convenes smaller and more specialized forums in other countries. Together with the Government of Québec, the Arctic Circle will convene its next forum in Québec City.
