The 2017 Alaska Marine Science Symposium (AMSS), Alaska’s premier marine research conference, will take place on January 23-27, 2017. AMSS brings together scientists, educators, resource managers, students, and interested public to discuss the latest and greatest marine research being conducted in Alaskan waters. Research will be presented by geographic theme, including the Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea & Aleutian Islands, and the Arctic. Topic areas will include ocean physics, fishes and invertebrates, seabirds, marine mammals, local traditional knowledge and more.

Organizers announce a call for abstracts for the Arctic Frontiers Science Conference entitled "White Space - Blue Frontiers".

Arctic Frontiers is an international arena on sustainable development in the Arctic. The conference addresses the management of opportunities and
challenges to achieve viable economic growth with societal and environmental sustainability. Arctic Frontiers 2017 will discuss the gaps in our knowledge about the Arctic oceans and the role these will play in the future.

The science section will address four main themes:

Portland, Oregon

Save the date for the first Toolik All Scientists Meeting. The goal of this meeting is to promote collaboration and synthesis among researchers working at Toolik Field Station and others working on Alaska's North Slope. It is an opportunity to think broadly about exciting science questions, present your research and learn what others are doing, and develop plans for collaborating on research and synthesis. The first day of the All Scientists meeting will be devoted to research presentations (a mix of oral presentations and posters).

The Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) and the Joint Antarctic School Expedition (JASE) invite high school students in their junior year to apply for two National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported polar science exploration programs. The JSEP project will take place in Greenland and the JASE project will be located in Antarctica and the Chilean Antarctic Institute in Chile.

Where: 
Washington, DC

The Arctic has warmed more than twice as fast as the global average, experienced rapid loss of sea ice, and collapse of warm season snow cover. These profound changes to the Arctic system have coincided with a period of ostensibly more frequent events of extreme weather across the mid-latitudes, including extreme heat and rainfall events and recent severe winters.

Join us in this workshop to explore the possible links between Arctic change and mid-latitude weather and climate​ that has spurred a rush of new observational and modeling studies.

Research Topics:
Terrestrial Ecology, Fjord Ecology, Glaciology, Hydrology, Limnology, Geomorphology, Biogeochemistry, Permafrost, and Quaternary Geology.

Where: 
Zurich, Switzerland

For the seventh time the Alpine Glaciology/Glaciologist Meeting (AGM) will be hosted in Zürich, Switzerland. The meeting serves as informal exchange platform for researchers working on snow, glaciers and permafrost. Oral and poster presentations are welcome, and young researchers are especially encouraged to present their work in progress.
