In 2021, the ASSW will take place in Lisbon under the theme: “The Arctic: Regional changes, Global impacts”. The event will bring together scientists, Indigenous Peoples, Arctic community members, and Arctic science stakeholders to present and discuss the most recent advances on Arctic knowledge across disciplines, from the natural sciences to the humanities. The ASSw2021 will also be an opportunity to foster research synergies between both Polar Regions, with sessions that target both Poles welcomed. The Arctic community is invited to chair and present session proposals of relevant topics in all science fields, both specific and cross-cutting, framed in the overall conference theme. For more information consult the ASSW2021 website..

Manuscript submissions to the T-MOSAiC Special Issue of Arctic Sciences have been extended to March 2022. This extension follows the IASC ratification of the postponed deadline of the program to December 2021. More information in the file below.
Following the Covid-19 pandemic situation and the postponement of many field projects in the Arctic in 2020, the T-MOSAiC Committees decided to propose to IASC the extension of the program to December 2021. During ASSW2020 this proposal was accepted and one more year of preparation and execution is now ongoing. More information will soon be released in the T-MOSAiC March Newsletter.
Due to the recent events concerning the Covid-19 pandemic, the T-MOSAiC and Interact team decided to extend the T-MOSAiC/INTERACT Call for Stations Managers Support until September.
