ESA will hold the first Cryosat North American Science Meeting. Co-sponsored by a number of international institutions, the meeting is open to all worldwide interested CryoSat stakeholders and data users. There will be no conference fee but the participants are required to finance their own travel and accommodation.

The meeting will provide a unique and timely forum for scientists and end-users of CryoSat data to share the state-of-the-art in research and applications, review mission achievements and prepare for the continued use of the CryoSat mission in the future.

The Gordon Research Seminar on Polar Marine Science is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present. It stimulates the exchange of new data and cutting edge ideas among young fellows.

When: 
Sun, 03/26/2017 to Fri, 03/31/2017
Where: 
Ventura, California

The 2017 GRC on Polar Marine Science "Understanding Polar Ecosystem Change Through Time Series Observations, Technological Advances, and Biophysical Coupled Modeling" will bring together leading investigators in Antarctic and Arctic marine research. Using a tradition of excellence facilitated by the Gordon Research Conferences (GRC), participants will present and discuss cutting edge interdisciplinary polar science observations, technological advancements and biophysical modeling activities associated with polar time series studies.

When: 
Mon, 03/27/2017 to Wed, 03/29/2017
Where: 
Bremerhaven, Germany

Jointly organized by the Polar Climate Predictability Initiative (WCRP-PCPI; http://www.climate-cryosphere.org/wcrp/pcpi), the Polar Prediction Project (WWRP-PPP; http://www.polarprediction.net), and the Sea Ice Prediction Network (SIPN; https://www.arcus.org/sipn), the workshop will be hosted by the International Coordination Office for Polar Prediction at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, Germany.

The Future of Polar Governance: Knowledge, Laws, Regimes, and Resources
When: 
Mon, 03/27/2017
Where: 

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.

A Dynamic Arctic in Global Change
When: 
Fri, 03/31/2017 to Fri, 04/07/2017
Where: 
Prague, Czech Republic

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.

When: 
Tue, 04/04/2017 to Thu, 04/06/2017
Where: 
University of Alaska Fairbanks

Background and objectives:

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.

Topics of interest include:
