The Polar Museums Network is a new international initiative to strengthen and spread the knowledge of polar history, science and exploration. The PMN is open to all museums, institutions and individuals with an interest in the collection, preservation, research and interpretation of polar artifacts.
The PMN will be holding its inaugural conference this autumn. The conference theme is Polar Partnerships: Working together to spread the knowledge of polar history, science and exploration. The conference will feature presentations and discussion sessions.
Wuhan University and Beijing Normal University would like to invite you to Wuhan, China from Oct. 21 to Oct. 22, 2016 for the International Symposium on Polar Environmental Change and Public Governance.

Join us for a PolarConnect event with teacher David Thesenga and the research team studying Ice Shelf Flow and Fracture Dynamics in Antarctica. Read more about the research and what David is learning here:
with focus on ice mass loss at fronts of tidewater glaciers in Pan-Arctic scale
Sat, 10/15/2016 to Mon, 10/17/2016
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.
