Where: 
Seattle, Washington

The fifth annual Arctic Encounter drew over 100 speakers, 32 sponsors, 11 media partners, 13 guest performers and artist exhibitors to the downtown Seattle waterfront to discuss and debate emerging challenges and solutions in Arctic security, including energy, environment, international relations and geo-politics, and economics. The 2018 Arctic Encounter also featured photography and fashion installments, the Far North Fashion Show on the red carpet during the keynote seated dinner, artist exhibitor sales of their work, and more.

When: 
Thu, 05/02/2019
Where: 
9:00 am to 6:00 pm at the Anchorage Museum in Anchorage, Alaska

The Anchorage Arctic Research Summit (ANCARS) aims to spur innovation in how we study and understand the North. The event will provide an opportunity for Anchorage researchers to share their knowledge of the Arctic and to network with others in the community.

When: 
Sun, 05/05/2019 to Sat, 05/11/2019
Where: 
Catalina Island, California

Future polar-focused researchers will need a strong foundation of interdisciplinary approaches to understand the rapid changes in polar regions. The Next Generation Polar Research Conference (NGPR-3) is designed to train and network early career polar researchers for interdisciplinary research careers. This week-long symposium will be held at the University of Southern California's Wrigley Marine Science Center on Catalina Island, CA.

Polar ocean facing changes
When: 
Mon, 05/06/2019 to Fri, 05/10/2019
Where: 
Liège, Belgium

Polar oceans are facing profound changes. The Arctic Ocean and the waters west of the Antarctic Peninsula are at the forefront of global warming, while the rest of the polar oceans will face changes in the very near future. The changes to face are not limited to a raise in atmospheric temperature and modification in the freshwater budget. Increases of economic activities (shipping, tourism, fisheries and mineral extraction), contaminants and invasive species also put polar oceans at risk.

When: 
Sun, 05/12/2019 to Fri, 05/17/2019
Where: 
Madison, Wisconsin

THEME:

When: 
Mon, 05/13/2019 to Wed, 05/15/2019
Where: 
Korea Polar Research Institute, Incheon, Republic of Korea

The 25th International Symposium on Polar Sciences organized by Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) will aim to bring polar scientists together to discuss their research findings and to promote international collaborative research. We cordially invite you to share your knowledge and perspectives on future outlook in Polar research.

THEME:

When: 
Mon, 05/13/2019 to Fri, 05/17/2019
Where: 
Milan, Italy

Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA’s Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world. For decades now Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change.

When: 
Tue, 05/14/2019 to Thu, 05/16/2019
Where: 
University of Maine, in Orono, Maine

The workshop goal is to bring together a diverse group of researchers and graduate students that are using or would like to use ice core data available from the Arctic Data Center to produce the future generation of paleoclimate data sets. The goal is to learn about common research workflows that the community is using and to test the applicability of selected Arctic data sets and software tools to build the next generation of digital paleoclimate data products and reconstructions.
