Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


The application deadline for business and science community meetings at ASSW2022 is 30 September 2021. The entire Arctic community is encouraged to use ASSW as a venue for bringing together their organizations, collaborations, and teams. ASSW organizers provide the logistical support and your meeting attendees only have to register for ASSW2022 and show up. As ASSW 2022 will be organized as a hybrid conference, both opportunities for in-person and online meetings will be offered during the conference.

The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) was initiated by IASC in 1999 to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between the various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research and to economize on travel and time. ASSW is now an annual venue for meetings of Arctic organizations, scientific collaborations, and more.

During ASSW 2022 there will be three days dedicated to IASC & Arctic business and science community meetings (26-28 March); ASSW 2022 will also feature the 6th Arctic Observing Summit

Please fill out this form to request an in-person and / or online space and we will do our best to accommodate your request. The application deadline is 30 September 2021, and a draft program is expected to be ready in mid-November.
