London, United Kingdom
The Polar Research and Policy Initiative (PRPI) and the Arctic Encounter have partnered to host the first Arctic Encounter London in January 2019 on the theme: 'UK-US Maritime, Aerospace and Security Cooperation in the Arctic'. The conference is trade- and security-oriented, and is designed to deepen the unique relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States by strengthening trade and cooperation in four areas in particular: maritime services, aerospace, fisheries, and defense and security.
The 15th Conference on Polar Meteorology and Oceanography, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Polar Meteorology and Oceanography Committee, will be held 19-23 May 2019, at the Williams Village Dining Center and Community Commons on the University of Colorado-Boulder Campus. The conference will kick-off with an evening icebreaker on Sunday 19th May and will be followed by four days of scientific sessions.
Papers are solicited on all aspects of polar meteorology and oceanography, including but not limited to the following:
The Arctic Frontiers is a global scientific conference on economic, societal, and environmental sustainable growth. This year's theme will be "Smart Arctic," with a pan-arctic emphasis, and an effort to build new partnerships across nations, generations and ethnic groups. Arctic Frontiers provides a forum for dialogue and communication between science, government and industry. The plenary program will have five main sessions: State of the Arctic, Blue Growth, Smart Solutions, Bridging the Gap, and Arctic business prospects.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Glacial Erosion and Sedimentation’ in 2019. The symposium will be held at the Pyle Center in downtown Madison, Wisconsin, USA on 12–17 May 2019.
The Workshop on the Dynamics and Mass Budget of Arctic Glaciers & the IASC Network on Arctic Glaciology Annual Meeting will host a cross-cutting activity of the Marine and Cryosphere working groups of IASC: “The importance of Arctic glaciers for the Arctic marine ecosystem”.

1. To review the main requirements from geo-information in the Atlantic Region from science to information services
2. To review the main activities, projects and initiatives taking place in the region where Earth Observation may contribute
3. To assess the potential of the increasing observation capacity offered by satellites to address the needs for science, applications and future information services
Speaking: Rick Thoman, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment & Policy (ACCAP)
Online and in-person at the University of Alaska Fairbanks: 12:00pm AKST, 4:00pm EST
The tools and techniques for making monthly and season scale climate forecasts are rapidly changing, with the potential to provide useful forecasts at the month and longer range. We will review recent climate conditions around Alaska, review some forecast tools and finish up the Climate Prediction Center's forecast for February 2019 and the remaining winter season. Feel free to bring your lunch and join the gathering in person or online to learn more about Alaska climate and weather.
Available in-person at: Room 407 in the Akasofu Building on the UAF Campus in Fairbanks.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has funded a project to conceptualize a national Geospatial Software Institute (GSI) as a long-term hub of excellence in software infrastructure for serving diverse research and education communities. To forward the strong momentum gained from two successful workshops, the third workshop will take place in the Washington DC area.
The Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS), Alaska’s premier marine research conference, has been bringing together scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and interested public for over twenty years to discuss the latest marine research being conducted in Alaskan waters. Over 700 people attend this 4-day long conference held annually during the month of January.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Five Decades of Radioglaciology’. The symposium will be held at Stanford University in Stanford, California, USA on 16–21 June 2019.
