Highlight your research, program, organization or ideas - Submit a Poster Abstract for AOS 2020

The 5th Arctic Observing Summit (AOS) will be held in 2020 (March 31- April 2) in Akureyri, Iceland in conjunction with Arctic Science Summit Week 2020. Your input and contributions in the form of poster presentations are welcome to highlight important issues and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and ideas to design, build, implement, expand, and provide long-term support for an international Arctic observing systems network. 

Ideally, poster presentations should focus on the key themes selected for the upcoming AOS, but other topics that are relevant for AOS are welcome:

  • Sub-Theme 1: Design, Optimization and Implementation of the Observing System
  • Sub-Theme 2: Observing in Support of Adaptation and Mitigation
  • Sub-Theme 3: Observing in Support of Indigenous Food Security and Related Needs 
  • Sub-Theme 4: Data Interoperability and Federated Search 
  • Sub-Theme 5: Arctic Observations in the context of Global Observing initiatives   
  • Other: Please email us to discuss other topics prior to submission to ensure inclusion in AOS 2020


Expanded descriptions of the above themes are available here. Presentations that include research results, overviews of initiatives or programs, highlights from ongoing organizations or groups, reviews of priorities or challenges, or proposed solutions for sustained and coordinated Arctic observing, are welcome. In addition, opportunities exist to prepare white papers and short statements that can complement poster presentations, or to explore related topics in greater detail. Contributions can be submitted by members in non-Arctic countries and topics that relate to opportunities to collaborate or coordinate international programs can be included.

Additional Poster Instructions (format, session times, set-up and take down) will be available in early February 2020.

"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."
