2018 ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting
From Monday 10 December 2018
To Friday 14 December 2018
Location Shaw Centre in Ottawa, Canada

Canada’s North is experiencing unprecedented change in its sea and terrestrial ice, permafrost and ecosystems under the triple pressures of climate change, industrialization and modernization. The impacts of these pressures can be seen on food and energy security, shipping, sovereignty, northern community health and well-being, and sustainable development and resource exploitation. All these issues have brought the North to the forefront of national and international agendas.

Building on the success of its previous Annual Scientific Meetings and International Arctic Change Conferences, the ArcticNet Network of Centres of Excellence announces the 14th ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting, which will be held at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa, Canada from December 10 -14, 2018.

Arctic researchers, Inuit, First Nations, Métis and Northern Community representatives, government and non-government organizations, students, and industry stakeholders are encouraged to attend.
