The 47th Annual International Arctic Workshop will be held at the University of Buffalo, NY, USA, from 23-25 March 2017.


"Polar Climate and Sea Level: Past, Present and Future"
Under this umbrella theme will be sub-themes on topics ranging from The Greenland Ice Sheet to Hazards of Polar Change to the Climate History of Baffin Bay.


The Arctic Workshop is open to all who are interested in high-latitude environments, including those of the past, present, and future. Previous workshops have included presentations on Arctic and Antarctic climate, atmospheric chemistry, environmental geochemistry, paleoenvironment, archeology, geomorphology, hydrology, glaciology, soils, ecology, oceanography, Quaternary history and more. For an example of past presentations, visit the 2016 Arctic Workshop website.


A relaxed, friendly and interactive experience, fostered in part by the relatively small size. And unlike most meetings, you can present your very latest research - the abstract deadline is only two weeks before the Workshop.


Wednesday 22 March: Icebreaker Reception in early evening.
Thursday 23 March: Talk and Poster Sessions all day, followed by Banquet Dinner with Keynote Talk from Eric Steig, University of Washington.
Friday 24 March: Talk and Poster Sessions most of the day.
Saturday 25 March: Talk and Field Trip to Niagara Gorge.


Submission of abstracts on the website is open now:

Deadline: Wednesday 22 February 2017.

Presentations can be either a poster or a talk.

Student support

Workshop registration is free for presenting students, and includes all meals. Travel and lodging support is not provided.
