The Administration will host the first-ever White House Arctic Science Ministerial, bringing together leaders from foreign governments around the world to expand joint collaborations focused on Arctic science, research, observations, monitoring, and data-sharing.
The FRISP meeting is for scientists working with various aspects of ice shelf processes meeting in an informal setting and exchanging ideas, results and field plans. This year there will be a special focus on under ice observations, including information and feedback with the SOOS under ice working group presently being formed. The meeting includes an APECS mentor panel discussion, prizes for best student presentations, and a guided excursion to the historical station Bornö situated in the Gullmar fjord, famous for its geology and marine life. Travel support for students is provided.
Arctic Ambitions V conference focuses on commercial opportunities in the Arctic, such as engineering, construction, architecture, natural resource development, environmental services, maritime shipping and logistics, and international trade.
The theme of Geosciences conferences is “Geosciences and Policies: Economy & Culture in a Changing World” which extensively covers all aspects on scientific and technical advances in the field of geosciences and geomatics ranging from the integration of instruments, methodologies and technologies to their use in earth sciences, environmental engineering and other natural sciences.
The Arctic Circle is an annual open assembly that takes place in mid-October in Reykjavík, Iceland. The annual program is designed in collaboration with partnering organizations. The Arctic Circle facilitates working meetings across issues and organizations and provides a forum for discussions hosted by different international and Arctic institutions. Following meetings, participating organizations are invited to contribute ideas for the next year's Arctic Circle assembly.
The Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS), the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC), and the Icelandic Centre for Research (RANNÍS) will co-convene a breakout session titled "Essential Science for Informed Decision-Making in the Changing Arctic" at this year's Arctic Circle Assembly being held 7-9 October in Reykjavík, Iceland.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) invites investigators at U.S. organizations to submit proposals to conduct research about the Arctic. Arctic research includes field and modeling studies, data analysis, and synthesis about the arctic region.
In celebration of 100 years, the National Park Service Alaska Region will host the Centennial Science and Stewardship Symposium at the University of Alaska Fairbanks on October 19 – 20, 2016. The symposium will highlight how science and scholarship have shaped the past 100 years of national park management, and provide a forward look at the next century of collaborative science and scholarship in Alaska’s national parks. Sessions will feature research and stewardship in national parks and celebrate the partnerships essential to park management.
