New Thinking about Local Agriculture in the Circumpolar Arctic - Best Practices, Innovations, and Perspectives
Organizers invite abstract submissions and registration for the 10th Circumpolar Agriculture Conference. This conference will convene 13-15 March 2019 at the Arctic Centre, University of Lapland in Rovaniemi, Finland.
Major goals of this meeting are to coordinate FAMOS activities, report accomplishments, exchange ideas and hypotheses, enhance international arctic studies collaboration and discuss plans for continuing FAMOS work beyond 2019.
The Antarctic, Arctic and Tibetan Plateau are located in the furthest ends and the highest peak of the Earth. The climate systems of the three regions greatly influence the weather and environment of the world through interactions between the five spheres of the Earth, and the research related to those regions takes an important scientific status in the global change research.
The 10th Portuguese Conference on Polar Sciences will be hosted for the first time by the University of Aveiro, Portugal. This meeting has been boosted by the Portuguese polar programme (PROPOLAR) yearly as forum where researchers working both in the Arctic and the Antarctica share their newest results. It has traditionally been an advanced venue for the discussion and triggering of fruitful national and international cooperation towards improved research in polar regions.
The European Commission, Finland and Germany will co-host the 2nd Arctic Science Ministerial (ASM 2).
The aims of this 2nd ministerial meeting are to promote the results of the deliverables agreed at the 1st Arctic Science Ministerial, increase capacity to respond to major societal challenges in the Arctic, encourage further scientific cooperation among a large number of countries and representatives of indigenous peoples.
The major goals of the 2018 Meeting are to coordinate FAMOS (Forum for Arctic Modeling and Observational Synthesis) activities, report accomplishments, exchange ideas and hypotheses, enhance international arctic studies collaboration and discuss plans for continuing FAMOS work beyond 2019.

We would like to announce an Elmer/Ice beginner level course planned for this October in Finland. This will take place at the Arctic Centre, University of Lapland, in Rovaniemi.
This course intended for people who have a background in glaciology, but never have used Elmer/Ice before. We will start with principle concepts, introducing how to set up flowline models in diagnostic and progmostic with accumulation/ablation distributions. On the second day, we introduce three-dimensional modelling concepts based on a real world case.
