The 10th Portuguese Conference on Polar Sciences will be hosted for the first time by the University of Aveiro, Portugal. This meeting has been boosted by the Portuguese polar programme (PROPOLAR) yearly as forum where researchers working both in the Arctic and the Antarctica share their newest results. It has traditionally been an advanced venue for the discussion and triggering of fruitful national and international cooperation towards improved research in polar regions.
An excellent and exciting opportunity awaits university students interested in the Arctic and Arctic affairs. University of Lapland and University of Oulu (Finland), in cooperation with the Model Arctic Council Thematic Network, will host a Model Arctic Council 2018.
We would like to announce an Elmer/Ice advanced users workshop will provisionally take place at the CSC-IT Center for Science in Espoo, Finland.
This workshop is intended for advanced Elmer/Ice users that want to exchange between each other and get information on latest developments within the package. The advantage this time is, that Elmer specialists from CSC will be present and available to discuss problems and possibilities that link to the code-base of Elmer.
There is no fee for the registration but registration is mandatory as the number of participants is limited to 150. We also have a few travel support grants for Early Stage Researchers (up to PhD plus 6 years). Application is done during the abstract submission and the selection will be done by the scientific committee.
An International Symposium on Mitigation Measures against Snow Avalanches and Other Rapid Gravity Mass Flows will be held in Siglufjörður, N-Iceland, from April 3rd to April 5th, 2019, by the Association of Chartered Engineers in Iceland (VFI).
Abstract submission deadline: 31st October 2018. Registration deadline: 15th December 2018
The ACUNS Student Conference was established in 2003 in order to increase awareness of northern research in Canada and elsewhere and to provide the opportunity for emerging northern scholars to gather from around the world. It is a regular event with a thematic focus and it is largely organized by a committee of graduate students from the host institution.
University of Washington Pack Forest Conference Center
Graduate students associated with University of Washington’s Program on Climate Change are pleased to announce the 12th Annual Graduate Climate Conference (GCC), which will be held at the University of Washington Pack Forest Conference Center.
The GCC is an interdisciplinary conference run by graduate students, for graduate students. The organizers of GCC strive to feature a diverse representation of students and research topics to create a broader, more inclusive community for emerging leaders in climate-related fields.
The Earth Energy Imbalance (EEI) is one of the most fundamental metrics defining the status of global climate change and expectations for continued global warming. WCRP Core Projects work together for a new WCRP-wide initiative to identify research goals and opportunities for Earth’s Energy Imbalance and to strengthen future international scientific collaboration with experts for EEI assessments.
Save the dates for this opportunity for international scientific collaborations. Further details can be found at the link above.
Ocean Sustainable Development - Connecting Asia and the World
Wed, 11/14/2018 to Fri, 11/16/2018
Kowloon, Hong Kong
The World Ocean Council convenes the Global Ocean Business Community to the 6th edition of its Sustainable Ocean Summit (SOS), with the theme of “Ocean Sustainable Development – Connecting Asia and the World.”
SOS provides a global platform for leadership companies and organizations to advance the development and implementation of industry-driven solutions to ocean sustainability challenges.
Now in its sixth year, MASS has gained an international reputation as a must-attend event to gain a wide perspective on challenges, opportunities and policies related to the Arctic and North Atlantic maritime environments. The aim of this Government of Canada and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador supported international conference is to promote stakeholder collaboration, technological innovation, harsh environment research & development, and world-class education efforts that are contributing to both Maritime and Arctic issues.
