An invitation to Arctic researchers, stakeholders and decision-makers

ArcticNet will host its 12th Annual Scientific Meeting from 5 to 9 December 2016 at the RBC Convention Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The ASM2016 will welcome researchers, students, Inuit, Northerners, policy makers and stakeholders to address the numerous environmental, social, economical and political challenges and opportunities that are emerging from climate change and modernization in the Arctic.

As the largest annual Arctic research gathering held in Canada, ArcticNet’s ASM is the ideal venue to showcase results from all fields of Arctic research, stimulate discussion and foster collaborations among those with a vested interest in the Arctic and its peoples.

This year ArcticNet is extremely pleased to have the 2016 Arctic Inspiration Prize Award Ceremony take place in Winnipeg during the Annual Science Meeting. This wonderful event will be held at the Winnipeg Centennial Concert Hall on the evening of Thursday December 8th featuring a performance by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra with the Nunavut Sivuniksavut Choir. Attendance at this event is included with ASM registration and transportation will be provided.
