UPDATE (June 11, 2020):

We are excited to announce that AGU20 will be mostly virtual. “Mostly” because if science and health professionals tell us it is safe for groups to convene, AGU would like to host a regional gathering in San Francisco. If we decide that is feasible, we will let you know by August. In addition, depending on where you’re located (and if it’s safe), you can create your own mini-AGU20 watch party or hub. We’ll share guidance if you’re interested in being a convener of one of these mini-AGU20 regional events.

When: 
Mon, 12/07/2020 to Thu, 12/10/2020
Where: 
Online

Arctic Change will make history by going virtual for the first time ever. ArcticNet’s international Arctic science conference takes place every 3 years, bringing together researchers and partners from around the world. This year, we’re taking the conference to you! Building on the success of our previous Annual Scientific Meeting while facing the realities of our times, we are pulling out all the stops to reach a bigger audience than ever before.

When: 
Mon, 02/01/2021 to Thu, 02/04/2021
Where: 
Tromsø, Norway

Arctic Frontiers Science conference is traditionally international and multidisciplinary, bringing together social sciences, humanities, physical and life sciences. The Arctic Frontiers Science is focusing on both fundamental and solution-oriented research with strong impact, which addresses growing societal challenges and needs in the Arctic region. Arctic Frontiers Science is developed with the guidance of the Strategic Science Committee of Arctic Frontiers.
