15th ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM2019)
From Monday 02 December 2019
To Thursday 05 December 2019
Location Nova Scotia, 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.

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

As the largest Arctic & Northern research gathering held in Canada, the ArcticNet ASM is the ideal venue for:

  • access to the best possible research from all fields of Arctic and Northern science,
  • participation in discussions around the challenges and opportunities arising from climate change and modernization in the North, and,
  • maintaining and developing collaborations among all those with interest in the Arctic and its peoples.

Deadline for session proposals: 15 May

With over 50 Topical Sessions proposed, the ASM2019 will be an outstanding opportunity to present your Arctic research, and network with a broad range of colleagues, collaborators and policy and decision-makers.
