The Future of Polar Governance: Knowledge, Laws, Regimes, and Resources
The British Antarctic Survey, working with the University of Leeds and Royal Holloway, University of London, will be hosting a workshop on the future of polar governance. The timing of the conference is not coincidental – sixty years ago, the International Geophysical Year (1957-58) initiated the promise of global scientific and political co-operation in the polar regions and their connection to planet Earth. The International Polar Year (2007-8) followed up on that promissory note.
The SIMIP Workshop occurs after the Polar Prediction Workshop (29th noon - 30th noon) and is devoted to discussions about the sea ice simulations from the upcoming CMIP6 experiments (SIMIP), with three distinct aims:
The Science Symposium will address the three sub-themes: (a) Changes in the Arctic, (b) Global Implications of Arctic Changes and (c) Impacts of Global Change on the Arctic.
To facilitate the participation of early career scientists and indigenous peoples, the organizers recommend that each session proposal includes one early career scientist co-convener and/or one indigenous co-convener, if applicable. Session proposals should also consider the overall geographic and gender balance of the proposed co-conveners.
The Journal Territorial and Maritime Studies (JTMS) is soliciting submissions for its Summer/Fall 2017 issue. In the interest of increasing submissions for this recently launched publication, JTMS is offering authors of articles successfully passing peer review and selected for publication in the Summer/Fall 2017 issue an honorarium of $1000. JTMS is an interdisciplinary Journal of research on territorial and maritime issues sponsored by the Northeast Asia History Foundation with editorial offices hosted by Yonsei University in South Korea.

As the largest annual Arctic policy conference in the United States, the Arctic Encounter Symposium (AES) convenes policymakers, industry leaders, and experts to confront emerging challenges in Arctic policy, innovation, and development.
Our mission is to raise awareness, engage challenges, and develop solutions for the future of the Arctic region and the people who live there.
The International Glaciological Society will hold an International Symposium on ‘Polar Ice, Polar Climate, Polar Change’. The symposium will be held on the University of Colorado Boulder campus at the University Memorial Center and other campus venues on 14–19 August 2017.
With support from NASA Applied Sciences Program, the Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC) is organizing an international workshop to advance remote sensing tools and data for operational and scientific applications by high northern latitude fire ecology and management communities. Participants will include interagency fire managers as well as scientists with an interest in remote sensing and a variety of disciplines.
