The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) is organized annually by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between the various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research. In addition to business and community meetings (17 - 21 February), ASSW 2023 will also include a Science Syposium (21 - 24 February 2023) entitled “The Arctic in the Anthropocene”.
Never before has the Arctic experienced such a high pressure by human impact either by local environmental disturbances or by global climate change leading to long-term changes and massive challenges to the resistance and resilience of polar ecological systems and Arctic societies.
The Arctic Science Summit Week 2023 will bring together scientists, Indigenous people, Arctic community members, and Arctic science stakeholders from all over the world to present and discuss the most recent advances on Arctic knowledge in the natural sciences, social sciences, the humanities as well as in the field of Indigenous knowledge. Besides the major Arctic focus of ASSW 2023, the Symposium will also be an opportunity to foster research synergies between both Polar Regions, with sessions that integrate the Arctic and Antarctica in order to understand global dimensions of anthropogenic impact.
