Highlight your research, program, organization or ideas - Submit a POSTER ABSTRACT for AOS

The third Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) will be held in 2016 (March 15-18) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in conjunction with the Arctic Science Summit Week. Your input and contributions in the form of poster presentations are welcome to highlight important issues and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas to design, build, implement, expand, and provide long-term support for an international Arctic observing systems network. Ideally, poster presentations should focus on these key themes selected for the upcoming AOS, but other topics that are relevant for AOS are welcome:

  • Theme 1: International and national strategies for sustained support of long-term Arctic observing 
  • Theme 2: Technology and Innovation for sustained Arctic observations
  • Theme 3: Contributions of the Private Sector and Industry to sustained Arctic observations
  • Theme 4: Actor and stakeholder engagement and needs in sustained Arctic observations
  • Theme 5: Arctic Observations in the context of Global Observing initiatives  
  • Theme 6: Interfacing Indigenous Knowledge, community-based monitoring and scientific methods for sustained Arctic observations

Expanded descriptions of these themes are available here. Presentations that include research results, overviews of initiatives or programs, highlights from ongoing organizations or groups, reviews of priorities or challenges, or proposed solutions for sustained and coordinated Arctic observing, are welcome. In addition, opportunities exist to prepare community white papers or short statements that can complement poster presentations, or to explore related topics in greater detail. Contributions can be submitted by members in non-Arctic countries and topics that relate to opportunities to collaborate or coordinate international programs can be included.

On behalf of the AOS Executive Organizing Committee and our partners, thank you for your contributions!
