UAF to host Eighth Conference of Arctic Parliamentarians
Date:8/8/2008

Fairbanks, Alaska The University of Alaska Fairbanks campus will be home to the Eighth Conference of Arctic Parliamentarians Aug. 12-14, 2008.

Participants will include members of national parliaments of all eight Arctic Council member states--Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, Sweden and the U.S.--the European Parliament, indigenous people's organizations, parliaments of observer states and other governments and interparliamentary organizations.

"We are delighted and honored to receive the Parliamentarians on our campus, especially during the fourth International Polar Year celebration," said UAF Chancellor Brian Rogers.

UAF is the only U.S. university situated in a near-polar region and is home to numerous faculty and researchers who are active participants in the Fourth International Polar Year, a major theme of the 2006 conference.
