The Understanding Peace in the Arctic conference is a timely international event that will bring together international researchers that contribute to the understanding of the Arctic, ranging from natural sciences, to social sciences and art. The link between science/research and policy(making) is a central feature of Arctic affairs, not least as the region is undergoing rapid changes and science is demonstrating that there is an urgent need to act.

The goal of the Graduate Climate Conference (GCC) is to provide a discussion forum for graduate students undertaking research on climate and climate change in an array of disciplines throughout the physical sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, and humanities. The format is designed to encourage new climate researchers to become acquainted with the details of diverse areas of study and to place their own work in the broader context of the climate research community.

The GCC will return to Woods Hole, Massachusetts for its 11th iteration 10-12 November 2017.

When: 
Thu, 06/15/2017 to Fri, 06/16/2017

Where: 
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

The conference is being hosted by the University of Alberta. The theme of NAFEW 2017 will be: Sustaining Forests from Restoration to Conservation. The conference will include one-day in-conference field trips to see both natural and industrial landscapes.

We have confirmed four keynote speakers and twelve Special Sessions have already been accepted for inclusion in the program. A description of these are provided on the agenda page.

The FRISP meeting is for scientists working on ice shelf processes meeting in an informal setting and exchanging ideas, results and field plans. As always, we welcome presentations on all aspects of ice shelf research, including, but not limited to:

When: 
Tue, 06/20/2017 to Wed, 06/21/2017
Where: 
Shanghai, China

The symposium will be hosted by Center for Polar and Deep Ocean Development of Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

The symposium aims to bring together scholars, experts and policymakers from all over the world to share the topics including: Climate change Impact on Arctic shipping and Resource Exploitation; New dynamics and relevant legal issues in the polar regions; Conservation of Marine Living Resources in the Polar Regions; Evolution and challenges of the polar governance regimes/systems; Key players' Polar Policies and Practices; China's Role in the Polar Governance.

When: 
Thu, 06/22/2017
Where: 
Trondheim, Norway

A workshop on X-ray micro-tomography (XRT) of porous Ice Media will be hold in Trondheim to gather actors from different research and industry fields that work with this technique to explore porous media containing ice and snow. The goal is to stimulate a discussion on similarities between porous ice media (e.g. snow and firn, sea ice, soil, rocks, building, food) and on challenges that X-ray cryo-tomography of ice media involves.

When: 
Mon, 06/26/2017 to Wed, 06/28/2017
Where: 
Boulder, Colorado

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) invites you to participate in the 12th Workshop on Antarctic Meteorology and Climate (previously called the Antarctic Meteorological Observation, Modeling, and Forecasting Workshop) to be held in Boulder, Colorado, USA. The workshop brings together those with both research and operational interests in Antarctic meteorology, forecasting, and related disciplines. It serves as a forum for current results, ideas, and issues in Antarctic meteorology, numerical weather prediction, forecasting, and climate.

When: 
Tue, 06/27/2017 to Thu, 06/29/2017
Where: 
University of Alaska Fairbanks

A regular in-person planning meeting of the SEARCH Science Steering Committee and the SEARCH Action Team leads will take place 27-29 June 2017 at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

This meeting is invitation only.

The Year of Polar Prediction (YOPP) will be officially launched in May 2017. YOPP will be an internationally-coordinated period of intensive observing, modeling, prediction, verification, user engagement, and educational activities initiated by the World Meteorological Organization’s World Weather Research Programme (WWRP). The goal of YOPP is to advance significantly our environmental prediction capabilities for the polar regions and beyond.
