The deadline for registration for the 2016 UK Antarctic Science Conference is fast approaching: deadline of Friday 17th June.
The main conference will be preceded by a meeting of the UK branch of APECS - the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists - (4th-5th July), and followed by a Workshop on Southern Ocean biases in Climate Models (afternoon of 7th July).
Connect to the the Arctic! Join us for an upcoming PolarConnect event with DJ Kast and the Microbial Changes in Arctic Freshwater team. This event will be broadcast live from Toolik Field Station in Alaska. Please join us! Register today!
The meeting will be from April 4-7, 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic.
Sessions should address one of the three sub-themes: Changes in the Arctic, Global Implications of Arctic Changes, and Impacts of Global Change on the Arctic. Session proposal deadline is June 30, 2016. To submit a session proposal, go to:

With critical past, and potential future environmental changes affecting Alaska and the Arctic Region, the United States needs to rapidly expand long-term observing of the ice and marine environment across the greater Arctic Ocean Basin, as well as conditions across the state of Alaska. This will allow us to better monitor changes across the region, and support stakeholders with improving prediction capabilities for weather, marine ecosystems, sea-ice, and climate.
Organizers announce that the Girls on Ice 2016 Expeditions are now accepting applications. The 2016 program includes two expeditions. The original North Cascades expedition in Washington State will be held 10-21 July 2016, and an Alaska-based expedition will take place 17-28 June 2016.
The WIHAH conference is bringing together Alaskan, U.S., and international engineers, health experts, researchers, community members, policymakers, and innovators to discuss health benefits, challenges and innovations associated with making running water and sewer in remote northern communities safe, affordable and sustainable. A conference proceedings publication and a summary report of the meeting will be produced. This conference will consist of expert speaker and poster presentation sessions, along with selected innovative technical demonstrations.
