This year’s Arctic Patrol and Reconnaissance event will bring the Arctic and Observer nations together to discuss the latest operational challenges and developments in the region. Cooperation will be a major theme of the conference, both across operations and joint exercises and also on a technical level with the need to explore data share opportunities. With the Arctic Council’s introduction of the Search and Rescue and Oil Spill Response Agreements, this will form a new area of debate, deliberating the strategies and technology needed to meet these new duties.
The School (ISSK) is a meeting-point for Russian, Finnish as well as other Nordic and European, university students with a focus on European, Russian and Arctic/Northern studies. Since the initial Summer School in 2003, the goal has been to bring together a limited number (20-30) of students for one week at the Petrozavodsk State University (PetrSU) in order to further increase their knowledge of Nordic-Russian policies and cooperation, and promote studies and academic dialogue.
The National Weather Service will hold an Alaska Climate Forecast Briefing on Friday, 22 May 2015 from 12:00-1:00 p.m. AKDT. The briefing will be held in room 407 of the International Arctic Research Center (IARC) on the campus of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and will also be available online via the Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP) listserve. This will be a monthly series generally taking place the third Friday of each month.
We invite you to participate in this workshop. It will be held as a joint session with International Summer School “Security and Recourses in the Barents Region” and as a part of International Academic Conference “Calotte Academy”.
Today we witness a gap between theoretical knowledge on human security and its practical applications that influences socio-economic development of a cross-border region. The problem is becoming more complicated due to the lack of communication between experts and potential ultimate target groups - local authorities, business and people.
The Effects of Oil on Wildlife (EOW) conference is the only global meeting venue focusing on the planning, response, rehabilitation, and research aspects of oil spills and their impacts to wildlife species. The 2015 conference, scheduled for May 18-22 in Anchorage, Alaska will be the 12th iteration of the conference founded by Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research in 1982.
Polar Region as a Key Observatory for the Changing Globe and Beyond

Songdo, Incheon, Republic of Korea
The Korea Polar Research Institute will hold the 21st International Symposium on Polar Sciences in Songdo, Incheon, Republic of Korea on May 19-20, 2015. The International Symposium on Polar Sciences has been held every year since the launch of our Antarctic research and has served to bring polar scientists together providing an international forum for exchanging, sharing ideas and opinions.
A two day conference focusing on changes, adaptations and opportunities for a changing Arctic. The conference will be divided into separate, but intertwined thematic segments - policy, science, climate change and green technologies. The conference is organized by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, the Embassy of Sweden in Washington, DC and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), and is aimed at Arctic oriented policy-makers, researchers, business representatives and NGO's in the lead-up to the U.S.
The Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) will host a webinar entitled "Outcomes from ASSW, ISAR, and ICARP 2015" on Tuesday, 19 May 2015 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. EDT. This event, the third in a series of webinars hosted by IARPC, is open to the public.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals for a cooperative agreement for archival of data and access to data and metadata generated through projects funded by the NSF Arctic Sciences Section. Proposals should focus on providing data and metadata ingest services for NSF-funded data providers, data and metadata access services to scientists across disciplines and other Arctic stakeholders (including decision-makers), and data and metadata archival services to ensure that the data is accessible and discoverable in the future.
Are you concerned with field safety while conducting work in the polar regions? Whether you’ve organized fieldwork for years or you’re participating in your first field campaign, knowledge of basic field safety skills is of the utmost importance. In order to increase field safety awareness, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS; http://www.apecs.is/) is hosting a series of webinars on field safety throughout the 2015 Arctic summer field season.
