For 75 years, the American Polar Society has both documented and communicated polar activities to the interested world. This meeting will bring together the current leaders in science, government, commerce, and diplomacy for a state-of-the-art forecast of the next seventy-five years in a world influenced more than ever before by the destiny of the Arctic and Antarctic.
This event is open to society members and the general public.
This one-day symposium will focus on economic, social, cultural, and environmental trends and developments within The Pas and northern Manitoba. 2012 marks what would have been Glenn Gould's 80th birthday as well as the 45th anniversary of his landmark CBC broadcast "The Idea of North," a radio documentary inspired by his train journey through northern Manitoba to Churchill.
The World Trade Center Alaska and the Institute of the North invite you to participate in Arctic Ambitions, a conference focused on the development of – and markets for – key Arctic resources.
Discussion will be framed by the five key Arctic exports (seafood, minerals, energy, precious metals and forest products); the conference will address the two-way nature of exports and imports in the Arctic. It’s not just a question of what Arctic nations can develop and export – equally important is who has a market for those resources.
The Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. announces that the Arctic Forum 2012 will be held 30 April - 1 May 2012 in Washington, D.C. The 24th ARCUS Annual Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Forum, on 2 May 2012. Both events will be convened in Washington, D.C.
The 97th meeting of the USARC will be held in Montreal, Canada, in conjunction with the "From Knowledge to Action" IPY meeting. The Commission will meet jointly with the Canadian Polar Commission on the afternoon of the 27th, to discuss common interests in Arctic Research. Details to follow.
This upcoming international forum in April 2012 will be a valuable opportunity to demonstrate and apply the latest findings of polar research on a broad range of topics from oceans and sea ice, to permafrost, vegetation and wildlife, to changes in Arctic communities and beyond. The From Knowledge to Action Conference will present the highlights of IPY 2007-2008 and the recent polar science assessments that are advancing our knowledge of the polar regions.
The EGU General Assembly 2012 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world into one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences. Especially for young scientists, it is the aim of the EGU to provide a forum where they can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geosciences.
