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.
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.
We would like to announce the Call for Abstracts for the SCAR 2016 Open Science Conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 22-26 August 2016. This conference will focus on Antarctica in the Global Earth System: From the Poles to the Tropics and how the changes that we are currently seeing in Antarctica will affect the rest of the world. It is sponsored by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, Malaysia together with the Sultan Mizan Antarctic Research Foundation and the National Antarctic Research Centre, together with SCAR.

International Research and Practice Conference "Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials" will be organised for the fifth time. It is a large-scale event, which every year becomes larger and more important. In 2012 International Research and Practice Conference was held for the first time in the format of International Summer School for young scientists "Nanotechnology: from fundamental research to innovations".
We are excited to invite you to the first UArctic Congress, held in Saint Petersburg, Russia, from September 12-16, 2016. It will be hosted by Saint Petersburg State University and will feature Science and Meeting sections, including:
Charting the course for climate and ocean research
Sun, 09/18/2016 to Sun, 09/25/2016
The collective voice and expertise of the international climate community is essential in shaping the international research agenda on the coupled ocean-atmosphere system. The World Climate Research Programme’s (WCRP) Core Project on Climate and Ocean – CLIVAR - invites the international climate community to review the state of the science, to prioritize international research plans and to initiate new collaborations. In September 2016 CLIVAR will hold an Open Science Conference to engage the wider collection of scientists who work in this important area.
