WMO DATA CONFERENCE
EARTH SYSTEM DATA EXCHA NGE IN THE 21ST CENTURY
16 - 18 November 2020
WMO Headquarters, Geneva, Switzerland
It is with great anticipation that we officially announce that our upcoming Arctic Change 2020 conference will be coming to you as a Virtual Event from 7-10 December 2020! Whether you are a seasoned ArcticNet conference participant or plan on joining the event for the first time this December, be assured that AC2020 will deliver the quality we have all come to expect from the Network’s annual conferences over the past decade albeit in a new format. We regret that greeting you in person is not possible, however, this challenge has opened exciting and innovative avenues which will maximize engagement and make it easier than ever before to tune in! Distance is no longer an obstacle and we are delighted that a wider audience can be a part of what has become the largest Arctic science event in North America.
Planning is well underway and we will be communicating with you later this summer with further details on how this virtual format will come to life. We look forward to launching the Call for Abstracts mid-July and to receiving your submissions.
