WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER THIS CONFERENCE:

IPY was an intensive, internationally coordinated scientific research campaign in the Arctic and the Antarctic sponsored by the International Council for Science (ICSU) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). In two action-packed years, IPY researchers observed exciting new phenomena, made fundamental scientific discoveries, developed new methods and tools, advanced interdisciplinary and international links in polar science and, most importantly, gained new understanding of the role of the Polar Regions in the total Earth system.

The IPY Oslo Science Conference will emphasize the breadth and global impact of polar research during IPY. It will highlight the extraordinary interdisciplinary and multinational efforts in research and in communication of research to the public. Participants will present early scientific results from all the IPY themes, particularly in the urgent areas of:

  1. Linkages between polar regions and global systems
  2. Past, present and future changes in polar regions
  3. Polar ecosystems and biodiversity
  4. Health and well-being of northern people and communities
  5. New frontiers and new directions in polar research
  6. Polar science education, outreach and communication
