The International Glaciological Society will hold a second International Symposium on ‘Interactions of Ice Sheets and Glaciers with the Ocean’ in 2016. The symposium is a follow-on to the successful 2011 IGS symposium on the same theme, which brought together 194 delegates from nearly 20 countries and resulted in the publication of 36 peer-reviewed research articles cited over 650 times since 2012. The Symposium will also serve as the first of two annual Forum for Research into Ice Shelf Processes (FRISP) meetings to be held in 2016.
University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) seeks applicants for an Undergraduate Summer Field Course in High Arctic Environmental Change. The course will take place from 11 July to 6 August 2016 in Svalbard, Norway.
The International Arctic Research Center (IARC) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks announces that the 2016 IARC Summer School will be held 11-23 July.
Arctic climate is the result of a complex interplay between the atmosphere, the ocean, sea ice and a terrestrial component in which freezing and thawing are critical to variations over a range of timescales. Since changes in the Arctic may well have global implications, it is essential that Arctic climate simulations be enhanced in order to reduce the uncertainties in projections of climate change.
The 2016 Students on Ice Arctic expedition will be a profound hands-on experience for youth to expand their knowledge of the changing circumpolar world, foster a new understanding and respect for the planet, and gain the inspiration and motivation needed to help lead us to a healthy and sustainable future.

Organizers announces a call for applications for a field course entitled, "Advanced Climate Dynamics Course on the Role of High Latitudes in Centennial to Millennial Scale Climate Variability."
The goal of the course is to provide students with empirical, proxy, and dynamical training within climate science and an understanding the basic principles and dynamics behind centennial to millennial scale climate variability and their link to past, present and future changes to high latitude climate.
Organizers announce a call for abstracts and workshops for the Aleutian Life Forum 2016: Building Resilience in the Face of Change. This forum will take place from 16-20 August 2016 in Dutch Harbor, Alaska.
