We are excited to invite you to the first UArctic Congress, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, from September 12-16, 2016. It will be hosted by Saint Petersburg State University and will feature Science and Meeting sections, including:
The theme of the 14th ICRSS symposium is Remote Sensing applications for addressing emerging research questions and management needs in polar regions. This symposium is unique in that it deals specifically with remote sensing applications in Arctic and Antarctic environments and how the broad suite of remotely sensed information and remote sensing techniques can provide much needed information for rapidly changing polar regions.
This session invites contributions to discuss all the aspects of the cryosphere interacting with the climate system, at various time scales and from both modelling and observational point of view and addressing past, present and future variability. The cryosphere represents one of the Earth system compartments' surface portion where links to the climate system are particularly strong.
with focus on ice mass loss at fronts of tidewater glaciers in Pan-Arctic scale
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.
It will take place in the seaside resort Sopot, Poland, 15 - 17 October 2016.

As the Arctic experiences rapid changes in the marine environment, there is unprecedented need for effective communication, collaborative science, and actionable knowledge to support responses by a variety of stakeholders. This workshop will focus on the implications of diminishing Arctic sea ice by convening diverse science experts, decision-makers, Arctic residents, industry specialists, NGO's, and other stakeholders to define and address important societal questions.
The University of Washington's eScience Institute is hosting a GeoHack week, November 14-18, 2016. Join us for five days of tutorials, data exploration, software development and community networking, focused on open source tools to analyze and visualize geospatial data. Our event will include a team from Google Earth Engine who will lead a series of workshops.
Several organizers have expertise in glaciology and can provide guidance on handling of field and remote sensing datasets related to the study of ice.

ARCUS DC Office - 1201 New York Avenue, NW. Fourth Floor. Washington, DC 20005 or online for live webinar
Time: 12:00pm to 1:00pm (EDT)
The ARCUS Arctic Research Seminar Series brings some of the leading Arctic researchers to Washington, D.C. to share in person and via webinar the latest findings and what they mean for decision-making. The seminars are open, and will be of interest to Federal agency officials, Congressional staff, NGOs, associations, researchers, and the public.
The International Glaciological Society, the International Association of Cryospheric Sciences and the WCRP Climate and Cryosphere Project invite you to attend the 'International Symposium on The Cryosphere in a Changing Climate', due to be held from 12-17 February 2017, in Wellington, New Zealand.
