Call for Community Input Arctic Observing Summit 2018

Deadline: 15 February

The Executive Organizing Committee for the Arctic Observing Summit 2018 is seeking input on the topics under discussion at the Summit in the form of brief statements. More details on the AOS process and specific guidance on input sought are provided below. The theme for the Summit is The Business Case for a pan-Arctic Observing System.

The Arctic Observing Summit is a biennial summit that aims to provide community-driven guidance for the design, implementation, coordination, and sustained operation of an international network of Arctic observing systems. The AOS provides a platform to address urgent and broadly recognized needs of Arctic observing across all components of the Arctic system. The AOS 2018 will focus on pressing issues in the implementation and support of sustained observations that can be addressed through a business-case lens.

Community input can highlight important data, management, or logistical needs or gaps, explore emerging opportunities, address a current challenge, present new initiatives or technology that can contribute to Arctic observing (including global programs), or review on-going observing activities or issues that are relevant for the development, application, operation, or support of a sustained Arctic observing network.

For more detailed information on themes and submissions, please visit the AOS website. Instructions for short submissions are available here.


P.S. Early-bird registration and accommodation are open for Polar2018!
