Organizers invite abstract submissions for the Arctic Frontiers 2018 conference. The theme of this conference will be "Connecting the Arctic" and will convene 21-26 January 2018 in Tromsø, Norway.
In a world of increasing turmoil the Arctic is still a place for collaboration and peaceful communication. In maintaining peaceful relations across borders in the north the encompassing science collaboration has been particular important. The vast ocean that represents the bulk of the arctic area carries large potentials, but also threats. As increasingly larger parts of it will be utilized, how do we communicate and conduct search and rescue. And more importantly, how do we secure productive and healthy oceans. Sustainable development of the ocean is of particular importance in this matter. Sustainable business development is also key in securing resilient arctic societies. Connecting these societies together and closer to the rest of the world’s ideas, knowledge, technology and capital is an issue of special importance at Arctic Frontiers Policy in 2018.
In 2018 the Arctic Frontiers Policy program will have five main sessions with the following tentative working titles: State of the Arctic, Technology and connectivity, Resilient Arctic societies and business development, Healthy and productive oceans, Industry and environment.
On behalf of the Scientific Program Committees, we have great pleasure in inviting you to submit one or more online abstracts, for oral or poster presentation, to any of the four parts.
We ask you to do so in accordance with the instructions provided on the Call for Papers page at the link above.
All abstracts will be reviewed by members of the four scientific committees for rating of abstract quality and presentation content.
Abstract submission deadline: Tuesday, 19 September 2017
Note this call for papers addresses only the science section that takes place from Tuesday 23 January to Thursday 27 January 2018.
