Please join our annual gathering of friendly arctic researchers, from novice students to veteran experts.
2017-2020 workshops - Spring workshops are planned for the coming years: 2017 Buffalo, 2018 Boulder, 2019 Stockholm, and 2020 Boulder. More information will be posted later.
The 46th Annual International Arctic Workshop will be held April 02-03, 2016 on the campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Registration & Abstracts due

Saturday All Day
Talks and posters
Sunday half day
Workshop will end by 2:00 PM Sun.
The Arctic Workshop is open to all interested in high-latitude environments, including the past, present, and future
Previous Workshops have included presentations on Arctic and Antarctic climate, atmospheric chemistry, environmental geochemistry, paleoenvironment, archeology, geomorphology, hydrology, glaciology, soils, ecology, oceanography, Quaternary history and more. For an example of past presentations, visit the 2014 Arctic Workshop website
The abstract deadline is 18 March. You can share your latest ideas and get valuable feedback
Unlike most meetings, you can present your very latest research. The abstract deadline is only two weeks before the Workshop! So you'll hear about entirely new studies as well as updates since AGU, GSA, and other meetings.
Obtain financial assistance to cover most of your registration, meals, and more
Assistance is available for a limited number of students from any country thanks to support from INSTAAR. Submit your abstract early; first come, first served.
Students will be provided with all the benefits of regular registration plus the following:
Mingle with friendly first-time and veteran participants in a nice location
Attendees like the Workshop so much they return again and again. And relaxed, informal interaction is fostered by the Workshop's modest size, high proportion of students, shared meals, and single-track schedule.
The Workshop will be held at the University of Colorado at Boulder. More specifically, the sessions will take place on the East Campus in the MacAllister building, which is part of INSTAAR's new home in the Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Complex (SEEC). MacAllister is located about 25 min walking distance from the Hotel and has convenient parking too.
NSF has a long tradition of supporting the Arctic Workshop.
