ASSW 2023 Science Symposium: Call for Sessions, Deadline 5 June 2022

16th May 2022

ASSW 2023 will be held in Vienna, Austria from 17 – 24 February 2023. Organizers are now accepting session proposals for ASSW  (Arctic Science Summit Week) 2023 Science Symposium entitled “The Arctic in the Anthropocene”.

Never before has the Arctic experienced such a high pressure by human impact either by local environmental disturbances or by global climate change leading to long-term changes and massive challenges to the resistance and resilience of polar ecological systems and Arctic societies. The Arctic Science Summit Week 2023 will bring together scientists, Indigenous people, Arctic community members, and Arctic science stakeholders from all over the world to present and discuss the most recent advances on Arctic knowledge in the natural sciences, social sciences, the humanities as well as in the field of Indigenous knowledge. Besides the major Arctic focus of ASSW 2023, the Open Science Conference (OSC) will also be an opportunity to foster research synergies between both Polar Regions, with sessions that integrate Arctic and Antarctica in order to understand global dimensions of anthropogenic impact.

The OSC will have plenary lectures and a large number of parallel science sessions, accepting both oral and poster presentations. Organizers invite the Arctic community to propose sessions of relevant topics in all science fields, framed in the overall conference theme “The Arctic in the Anthropocene”. IASC aims to bridge gaps in Arctic science, and therefore the hope is 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 to June 5, 2022. You can submit your session proposal here:
