To Thursday 20 July 2017
Organizers announce a call for registration for the 7th Biennial Symposium on the Impacts of an Ice-Diminishing Arctic on Naval and Maritime. This symposium will bring together nationally and internationally-recognized experts on Arctic marine operations, environments, science, policy, law, and governance. It will include speakers from the Alaska Congressional Delegation, NOAA, the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Arctic Research Commission (USARC), and other representatives from the U.S., Arctic nations, and the international community. The symposium will be available in-person in Washington, D.C. and as an online webcast.
Registration is complimentary, but required to participate in the live symposium or the live-streamed webinar.
The symposium talks will cover three general topic areas, including:
- Latest research on observed and predicted changes in the Arctic sea ice environment,
- Present and future impact of these changes on Arctic operations, and
- Emerging Arctic policy issues on national and international levels.
This event offers an opportunity to meet, interact, and share insights about the impact of an ice-diminishing Arctic Ocean on marine transportation; resource development; oceanographic research; federal, state, local, and international operations; policy implications; and other issues in the rapidly evolving Arctic region.
