AOS 2020 Posters


Dear Authors, please click here to read an important message from the AOS 2020 organizers. 

AOS 2020 - Poster Abstracts for Public Review 

Instructions to presenters:

As part of the AOS 2020 move to an online format, poster sessions will take place via Zoom. Poster abstracts submitted for the 2020 Summit can be viewed below and pdf's of each poster will also be available to browse during the sessions. Zoom rooms will be organized by AOS sub-themes and this will allow poster presenters to share their work.  

Two poster sessions have been scheduled: 

  1. 31 March, 12:00 - 14:00 GMT

  2. 1 April, 7:00 - 9:00 GMT

Each poster will be assigned to a room of approximately ten posters during one of the above sessions. Room assignments will be relayed in the coming days. 

Links to join the Zoom rooms will be available on the website so anyone interested in the poster session can join the room and engage in the discussions. Each room will start with poster presenters giving a short (1-2 minute) summary of their poster to facilitate the discussion. While the posters are going to be available on the AOS website, poster presenters are encouraged to use screen share to highlight figures and content in their discussions. 

Presenters are also encouraged to 'stay' in their rooms for the majority of the session, but everyone is welcome to come in and out of calls for different rooms as suits their interest. 

Since the poster session will be entirely virtual, there are no specific guidelines for the size or shape of the poster. Instead, please make sure it can be saved as a pdf file and does not exceed 25 MB. If you submitted an abstract for AOS 2020, we invite you to also submit a digital poster file (PDF) by March 27th, 2020. This will be attached to your online abstract below.  Please use the following link for poster upload:

Please contact us at with any questions.

A copy of the daily agenda can be found here.

"The Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) is a high-level, biennial summit that aims to provide community-driven, science-based guidance for the design, implementation, coordination and sustained long-term (decades) operation of an international network of Arctic observing systems. The AOS provides a platform to address urgent and broadly recognized needs of Arctic observing across all components of the Arctic system, including the human component. It fosters international communication and the widespread coordination of long-term observations aimed at improving understanding and responding to system-scale Arctic change."
