Organizers invite abstract submissions for the Sixth International Symposium on Arctic Research (ISAR-6). The symposium will convene 2-6 March 2020 in Tokyo, Japan. The theme of ISAR-6 is Arctic Research: The Decade Past and the Decade Future, and will focus on how Arctic research has been progressing in the past ten years and what should be done in the next ten years for the sustainable development goals.

The ISAR is the opportunity for the presentations of Arctic-related research in the natural sciences, humanities, political science, economics, engineering, and others, and to discuss the provision of sustainable ways and knowledge.
