Meeting Description:
Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) is the annual gathering of international organizations involved in Arctic research. The Summit provides opportunities for coordination, collaboration and cooperation in all areas of Arctic science, and to combine science and management meetings to save on travel and time. The International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) chairs the Arctic Science Summit Week, and meetings include IASC Working Groups and several additional open and closed meetings. More information:

The Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) is a high-level, biennial summit that aims to build a common vision for sustained, long-term observations of the Arctic and serve as a forum for the planning and coordination of such measurements. Organized by the International Study of Arctic Change (ISAC), the Summit brings together researchers, stakeholders and funding agency representatives to facilitate the design, implementation, coordination and sustained long-term (decades) operation of an international network of Arctic observing systems.
