Organizers of the 2015 Arctic Observing Open Science Meeting announce the availability of travel awards to support early-career scientist participation. Limited funding is available for airfare, lodging, and per diem. An early career scientist is defined as one who is either a current student or within the first five years of completing their most recent degree (graduate or undergraduate) in study of the Arctic region.
Travel award applications, due 9 October 2015, are available here: http://www.arcus.org/search-program/meetings/2015/aoosm/travel-support
The Association of Early Career Polar Scientists (APECS) and the Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) will review applications. Award announcements will be made by Thursday,15 October 2015. The number of awards is dependent upon funding. Please contact Judy Fahnestock, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.

Organizers of the 2015 Arctic Observing Open Science Meeting announce a call for abstract submissions and registration. The meeting will be held 17-19 November 2015 in Seattle, Washington. The Arctic Observing Open Science Meeting will bring together individuals and teams involved in the collection, processing, analysis, and use of observations in the Arctic from academia, agencies, industry, and other organizations.
The goals of the Arctic Observing Open Science Meeting are to:
- Present and discuss scientific findings and advances resulting from Arctic observing projects;
- Discuss operational and technological achievements of observing programs funded through local, state, and federal agencies and private and non-profit organizations;
- Explore how well new observational achievements meet major science goals;
- Identify opportunities for collaboration to develop high-impact data synthesis products and papers; and
- Strengthen the goals, identity, and activities of an integrated Arctic Observing System.
Core funding for the meeting has been awarded to the Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S. (ARCUS) by the National Science Foundation's Arctic Observing Network program.
The Organizing Committee is inviting abstracts for oral parallel sessions and poster sessions. The sessions have been structured to share information about current scientific findings and advances resulting from Arctic observing projects from all disciplines, and to further define collaborations amongst researchers.
For further information, online registration and abstract submission is available on the meeting website:
