  The Arctic: Regional Changes, Global Impacts  

Call for abstracts

Extended to December 10th





ASSW2021 Science Symposium moved online

The COVID-19 pandemic is intensifying as the autumn approaches in the Northern Hemisphere and the number of confirmed cases has been increasing, particularly in western Europe.

It is unlikely that the pandemic situation will improve in the upcoming months unless a vaccine or an effective treatment will be developed, which might still take several months. This situation has direct consequences on traveling and on conferences involving large number of participants like ASSW2021.

Therefore, the ASSW2021 Local Organizing Committee in coordination with IASC decided to move the Science Symposium part of ASSW2021 (23 – 26 March 2021) into an online event.

As the Business and Community Meetings (20 – 22 March 2021) involve less participants, we are still considering the possibility of organizing this part of ASSW2021 in a hybrid format (partially in-person and partially online). A final decision on this part of ASSW will be made in December.

The Local Organizing Committee is disappointed with the need to implement this decision, but we think that it was a necessary given the current circumstances. We are working towards an excellent online Science Symposium in ASSW2021, which will also allow for wider access across the world. We expect that it will be a very good opportunity to discuss Arctic science, engineering, education, as well as Indigenous and local community issues. Hence, we are looking forward to meeting you all online soon and to organize a very fruitful ASSW2021.

Invitation to Lisbon for the ASSW2021

On behalf of the Portuguese Minister of Science, Technology and Higher Education, the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT) and the Local Organizing Committee we are pleased to invite you to take part in the Arctic Science Summit Week 2021, which will take place in Lisbon from 20 to 26 March 2021. The Conference is organized by FCT, Ciência Viva, AIR Center, the Portuguese Arctic Community and by IASC and partners.

Framed by the overarching theme for the Science Conference “The Arctic: Regional Changes, Global Impacts”, Lisbon invites International experts on the Arctic and Indigenous Peoples to discuss the “New Arctic” and also its impacts and interactions to and with the lower latitudes.

It will be a pleasure to warmly receive you all in Lisbon for the ASSW2021.

Looking forward to seeing you all Lisbon next year.

Registration




Conference attendees must register prior to attending the conference

Registration will provide access to the Business and Community meetings, Science Conference or both. Reduced rates will be offered to early career scientists and Indigenous participants.

The Science Symposium (23 - 26 March 2021) will be fully online.

For the Business and Community Meetings (20 - 22 March 2020), a potential hybrid model (in-person + online) is currently under evaluation. If the hybrid model is to take place, the registration fee (Model B) will for those attending in-person include coffee breaks and lunches and all meeting materials. The final decision on the Business Meetings format will be made before the registration for ASSW2021 opens on December 15th 2020.

Call for Abstracts

 

Call for Abstracts

Dear colleagues,
The call for abstracts for the science days of the Arctic Science Summit Week 2021 (24-26 March 2021) under the overarching topic “The Arctic: Regional Change Global Impacts” is now open. Despite the focus on the Arctic, several sessions accept contributions on the Antarctic, aiming at fostering networking and advances on research on both poles.

The conference will be held online and will include oral and e-poster presentations.
Submissions of abstracts is open for the following themes:

Each lead author may submit up to one oral and one e-poster presentation. The notification on abstract acceptance will be made on the 30 December 2020, with the final programme being presented in January 2021. Oral presentations will be of up to 12 minutes. The e-posters are to be submitted as short videos or alternatively in pdf format. We are working towards the implementation of a very good online platform allowing for excellent and interactive sessions. Detailed Guidelines will be made available in January.

Abstracts text is limited to 1500 characters and the title should not be longer than 150 characters.

The abstracts will be organized in a book of abstracts with DOI to be made available in pdf.

Thank you very much for your interest in ASSW2021 and looking forward to meet you online in March.

Gonçalo Vieira, Chair of the International Scientific Committee
