Update: Advancing Collaboration in Canada-US Regional Security II (ACCUSARS II for short) has been postponed to March 25-26 (original dates were February 25-26).
ADAC and NAADSN (The North American and Arctic Defense and Security Network at Trent University, Peterborough Ontario), kindly invite participants to join us in a follow-up meeting from the Advancing Collaboration in Canada-U.S. Arctic Regional Security (ACCUSARS) conference in September 2020.
Inflection Points: Security, Conservation, and Adaptation in the Arctic
Since 2012, the annual Arctic Conference at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy has provided a platform for policymakers, business leaders, academics and students to address the implications of a volatile Arctic. This conference brings together high-level leaders working in business, governance, human rights, international law, and science from around the world to share insights, research, and engage in conversations on the pressing issues of a multi-disciplinary nature in the Arctic region.
*Note: The 28th International Polar Conference was scheduled for 6 September to 11 September 2020 and then 28 February to 4 March 2021 in Cologne, Germany, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Due to ongoing restrictions it will not be possible to hold a larger conference in March 2021. Therefore, the DGP steering committee decided to further postpone the 28th International Polar Conference. We will carefully observe and assess the evolving situation. Thus, two time slots have been identified, one in October 2021 and one in March 2022.
The 12th Annual International Science of Team Science Conference hosted by Virginia Tech 7-11 June, 2021, aims to advance our understanding of collaborative initiatives that address multidimensional complex societal problems. We invite team science academics, leaders and members of cross-disciplinary teams, institutional leaders and administrators, and funding agencies to collaboratively rethink how science of team science research and practice may serve as a foundation for positive change and justice.
Art Exploration of the Arctic: Polar Regions in Culture, Art and Philosophy
The next Polar readings (2021) will be devoted to the issues of artistic and philosophical understanding of the Arctic and Antarctic, identifying and forming the meanings that characterize and shape our understanding of the Polar regions.
Specialists, researchers of the Arctic and Antarctic from research institutes, archives, museums, libraries, representatives of state and public organizations are invited to participate in the conference.
The Arctic Yearbook is calling for abstracts for its 2021 volume – the 10th anniversary edition.
The Arctic Yearbook is an international and peer-reviewed volume which focuses on issues of regional governance, development, environmental politics, circumpolar relations, geopolitics and security, all broadly defined. It is an open access, online publication.
Fostering a Culture of Equity through the Removal of Boundaries
Mon, 03/01/2021 to Fri, 03/05/2021
The Alaska Anthropological Association will be holding its 48th Annual Meeting as a free virtual conference via Zoom (#AkAA virtual 2021). The theme of this year’s conference is Fostering a Culture of Equity through the Removal of Boundaries. The virtual format of the conference affords the opportunity to offer both research-driven presentations as well as social events that encourage conversations and connections. The boundary-less conference format also offers us a significant opportunity to better serve our underrepresented communities as well as our colleagues from all over the world.
Speaking: Cathy Cahill, Eyal Saiet, and Andrew Wentworth, University of Alaska Fairbanks
Online: 7:00-8:00 pm AKST, 11:00 pm - 12:00 am EST
The UAF Geophysical Institute presents the virtual 2021 Science for Alaska Lecture Series. Tune in at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays to learn about exciting science from measuring the aurora, monitoring whale populations with unmanned aircraft, and participating in the largest Arctic expedition in history. RSVP to watch on Zoom or watch live from the UAF or GI Facebook pages.
Join a listening session to share your story, experiences or data and hear from others in the region. These two-hour listening sessions will start with four short presentations from people who live and work in the region with time for questions. Then small group discussions to hear from participants on what they have or are experiencing in terms of unusual dryness in the region and how they have prepared for future drought.
