IASC is excited to announce that ASSW 2023 will be held in Austria!
Austria has been an IASC member country since 2014, and 2023 is a very special year for polar research in Austria - it is the 150th anniversary of the Austro-Hungarian expedition to Franz Josef Land! Consideration of particular dates, location (Graz and/or Vienna), and scheduling of an open science conference are currently underway by the local hosts (the Austrian Polar Research Institue) and the IASC Secretariat.
The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) was initiated by IASC in 1999 to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research and to economize on travel and time. Over the years, the summit evolved into the most important annual gathering of the Arctic research organizations. The summit is organized by an International Coordination Group and any organization engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research may participate.
