The Executive Organizing Committee for AOS 2024 is now seeking community input in the forms of:
Observing community input can serve to highlight important observations and data products, management, or logistical needs or gaps, explore emerging opportunities, address a current challenge, present new initiatives, or technology that can contribute to Arctic observing (including global programs), or review on-going observing activities or issues that are relevant for the development, application, operation, or support of a sustained Arctic observing network.
We are currently preparing to accept poster submissions. Please check back shortly for details!
Short statements should link where appropriate to the working groups identified for AOS 2024:
These statements will be used to help guide discussions during the AOS Thematic Working Group sessions. Authors may be invited to give presentations during breakout sessions at AOS 2024, and a synthesis of issues included in the statements will inform recommendations and action items adopted at the Summit and conveyed to Arctic Council Working Groups, and to local, national, and international bodies overseeing, supporting, or carrying out sustained Arctic observations.
Input on other important and relevant topics related to AOS are welcome under the category of “OTHER: Other high-priority issues for Arctic observing.” If you are interested in submitting a session proposal, we recommend submitting a short statement as a companion to the session under the OTHER category.
The submission deadline for short statements has been extended until January 15, 2024.
We are no longer accepting session proposal submissions.

Much of the Summit is organized around the outcomes of prior events, and the pre-Summit discussions and activities of AOS Working Groups. Based on recommendations and priorities identified during the 2022 Summit, AOS 2024 will focus on four thematic areas, each supported by a Working Group.
More information about each working group, including a description, and working group leads and co-leads will be provided shortly.
