The Science Symposium will be on 4-7 April 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic, and 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 4th Winter Field Course for Snow Measurement is a course for serious students of snow, whether engaged in modeling, measuring, or teaching about snow. The course will introduce students to standard and specialized quantitative and qualitative measurements of snowpack characteristics, as well as how to conduct safe and efficient snow field campaigns. Over three full days we will provide fundamental training to students in performing and analyzing snow measurements, including depth, density, snow water equivalence, grain size and shape, stratigraphy, temperature and hardness.
