We are inviting Session Proposals for the 2018 ArcticNet Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM2018) until Friday, May 18, 2018.
In a year of possible renewal of the Network, ArcticNet and its partners invite Northern researchers, stakeholders and decision-makers to the ASM2018 at the Ottawa Shaw Centre between December 10-14, 2018.
The ASM2018 will bring together leading researchers, students, Northerners including Inuit, First Nations and Métis peoples, policy-makers, private sector representatives and media to address the numerous environmental, social, economic and political challenges and opportunities as a result of climate change and modernization in the Arctic.
