The theme of the week will be "The Arctic: Regional Change, Global impacts".
In 2021, the ASSW will take place in Lisbon from 20 to 26 March 2021 under the theme: “The Arctic: Regional changes, Global impacts”, with the three last days reserved for the Open Science Conference (OSC). The event will bring together scientists, Indigenous Peoples, Arctic community members, and Arctic science stakeholders from all over the world to present and discuss the most recent advances on Arctic knowledge across disciplines, from the natural sciences to the humanities. The OSC will also be an opportunity to foster research synergies between both Polar Regions, with sessions that target both Poles welcomed.
The OSC will have Plenary lectures and a large number of parallel science sessions, accepting both oral and e-poster presentations.
We invite the Arctic community to chair and present session proposals of relevant topics in all science fields, both specific and cross-cutting, framed in the overall conference theme: “The Arctic: Regional Change, Global Impacts”. IASC aims to bridge disciplinary and national gaps in Arctic science. We therefore hope that session conveners will embrace this international and interdisciplinary approach in their proposed sessions. The OSC organizers hope to see a diverse set of sessions submitted by diverse groups of conveners.
The call for sessions is open until 22 May 2020.
