Worldwide interest in the Arctic is increasing. Changing ice-conditions, regional growth and international geopolitics have placed the High North at the center of attention.
On May 24-26, the High North Center – under the Business School at the University of Nordland – invites you to participate in the High North Dialogue 2016. The theme of this year’s conference is The Blue Future of the Arctic.
Integrating Interdisciplinary Natural & Social Scientific Research for Policy Development

Brown workshop will bring together researchers working on multidisciplinary natural/social science projects addressing issues of contemporary change in the North with social scientists focused on policy development at a global scale.
You are cordially invited to the 23rd IAHR International Symposium on Ice, which will be held from 31st of May to the 3rd of June 2016 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA. The 23rd IAHR International Symposium on Ice is sponsored by the International Association of HydroEnvironment Engineering and Research (IAHR).

University of Alaska Fairbanks and Alaska's North Slope
The University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) announces a fifteen day summer course entitled "Arctic Alaska Environmental Change." The course is open to undergraduate and graduate students interested in Arctic environmental change. The three credit course will be held 1-15 June 2016 in Fairbanks and on Alaska's North Slope.
The Sustainable Arctic - Opportunities and Challenges of Globalization
Mon, 06/06/2016 to Thu, 06/09/2016
In recent years with rapid changes of climate and environment in the Arctic region and China’s economic growth, the interaction between China and the Arctic has been increasingly deepened, which calls for a coherent and sustainable development of the Arctic and China.
China-Nordic Arctic research cooperation has been intensified over the past few years and during that period Chinese institutes such as the Polar Research Institute of China (PRIC) and Shanghai Institute of International Studies (SIIS) have strengthened their ties with international counterparts.
The course is intended to provide glaciology graduate students with a comprehensive overview of the physics of glaciers and current research frontiers in glaciology with focus on quantitative glaciology, modeling and remote sensing of glaciers and ice sheets. The course is taught by glaciology faculty of the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, and several invited guest lecturers.
We will reassemble the members of the National Steering Committee and a small but diverse selection of representatives from the five regional workshops, to total about 15 people. Our aim will be to identify and synthesize the core threads of the previous workshops and public contributions proffered between workshops. Our target output for the workshop will be a final report draft and outline of steps leading to the final report release in June 2016. The Jefferson Institute will manage production of the publication.
Organizers announce that the Girls on Ice 2016 Expeditions are now accepting applications. The 2016 program includes two expeditions. The original North Cascades expedition in Washington State will be held 10-21 July 2016, and an Alaska-based expedition will take place 17-28 June 2016.
