Over the years the summit evolved into the most important annual gathering of the Arctic research organizations.
In odd number years, the ASSW includes a 3-day Science Symposium as well as meetings of the participating organizations. These symposia create a platform for exchanging knowledge, cross fertilization and collaboration and attract scientists, students, policy makers and other professionals from all over the world.
In even number years, the ASSW includes meetings of the participating organizations and the Arctic Observing Summit (AOS), a high-level, biennial summit that aims to provide community-driven, science-based guidance for the design, implementation, coordination and long-term operation of Arctic observing systems.
