The Third Polar Data Forum will take place 18-22 November 2019 in Helsinki, Finland at FMI headquarters.
The meeting will be co-organized with regional partners including the INTAROS project in conjunction with the EU Arctic Cluster, the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, and other European organizations. The Forum will be co-convened by the IASC-SAON Arctic Data Committee, Southern Ocean Observing System, Standing Committee on Antarctic Data Management, the World Data System and other organizations engaged in polar data management.
This iteration of the Polar Data Forum will combine a two to two and a half day conference style meeting in support of information exchange, with the remainder of the week using a "hackathon" approach that will build on the development work done in Boulder, Geneva and other meetings.
More information will be posted at www.arcticobserving.org and https://arcticdc.org/
As a part of the Icelandic chairmanship of the Arctic Council, the Icelandic Meteorological Office will host an exploratory workshop for Earth System Modelling in the Arctic. The workshop will:
• Promote the improvement of forecasting skill of weather, ocean, hydrological and climate models
• Synergize cooperative efforts
Dear ArcticNet colleagues,
Save the date!
As the largest annual Arctic research gathering held in Canada, the ArcticNet ASM is the ideal venue to present results from all fields of Arctic research and stimulate networking and partnership activities.
Building on the success of previous ASMs, the 2019 Meeting will welcome researchers, students, Inuit, Northerners, policy makers, stakeholders and the media to address the global challenges and opportunities brought by climate change and modernization in the Arctic.
Detailed information on the meeting, registration, call for abstracts and sponsor/exhibitor opportunities will be available on the ASM2019 website in July.
We hope to see you all in Halifax!
Mickaël Lemay, on behalf of the ASM2016 Organizing Committee

It’s our great pleasure to announce that The Sixth International Symposium on Arctic Research will be held at Hitotsubashi Hall in Tokyo from March 2 to 6, 2020. It will be launched under the Japan Consortium of Arctic Environmental Research (JCAR) with the auspices of several institutions in Japan.
The rapid warming in the Arctic has been revealed. However, the precision of forecasting the future of climate and environmental change is still insufficient for utilization in sustainable development in the Arctic, while interests for resource utilization and economic activities are growing and progressing rapidly. The ISAR is aimed at presenting and discussing the scientific research results together with the Arctic researchers from all over the world, extracting and sharing issues to solve, and exploring the future of the Arctic. In ISAR-6, we are planning to discuss how Arctic research has been progressing in the past ten years, and what we should do in the next ten years for sustainable development.
ISAR-6 will consist of general and special sessions. The general sessions will address the following topics: atmosphere; ocean and sea ice; rivers, lakes, permafrost and snow cover; ice sheets, glaciers, and ice cores; terrestrial ecosystems; marine ecosystems; geospace; laws, politics and economy; language, culture and health; engineering for sustainable development. The special sessions will be solicited on cross-cutting themes, till May 6, 2019. Please visit the WEB site (www.jcar.org/isar-6/).
The special sessions are of inter-disciplinary and solicited from the participants. Proposal for Special Session should be submitted using the form to ISAR-6 secretariat: no later than May 6, 2019.
