Arctic Frontiers Science

scienceThe 9th Arctic Frontiers conference will be held in Tromsø, Norway, with the title: Climate and Energy, from Sunday 18 January to Friday 23 January 2015. 

The earth is in the midst of major climate changes. The Arctic is experiencing the impact of these changes more and faster than other parts of the globe. Processes starting in the Arctic may have deep and profound impacts on other parts of the globe. At the same time the Earth's population is rising and with it the global energy demand. New and greener energy sources are gaining market shares, but still the energy mix of the foreseeable future will have a substantial fossil component. The Arctic is expected to hold major oil and gas resources, while the regions green energy potentials are less explored. How will the Arctic's energy resources contribute to the global energy mix in the decades to come? How will the climate changes impact the Arctic environment and societies? And where will we find a balance between the planet’s energy demand and the necessity to reduce CO2 emissions?

The Arctic Frontiers conference is a central arena for discussions of Arctic issues. The conference brings together representatives from science, politics, and civil society to share perspectives on how upcoming challenges in the Arctic may be addressed to ensure sustainable development. Arctic Frontiers is composed of a policy section and a scientific section.   

The 9th Arctic Frontiers science section Climate and Energy will address three main themes:

  1.  Arctic climate change – global implications,
  2. Ecological winners and losers in future Arctic marine ecosystems
  3. The Arctic's role in the global energy supply and security.

This call for papers addresses only the scientific section from 21 January to 23 January 2015.

On behalf of the Scientific Program Committees, we have great pleasure in inviting you to submit one or more abstracts (for oral or poster presentation) to any of the three parts, in accordance with the instructions provided. 

All abstracts will be reviewed by members of the three scientific committees for rating of abstract quality and presentation content.

The Call for Papers closes on 22 September 2014.

It is recommended that, before submitting an abstract via the online abstract submission form, you read the  Abstract Submission Terms and Conditions and ensure that you are able to meet all the requirements. Please also make sure you carefully read the  Abstract Submission Guidelines and Instructions

Please examine the three conference parts below.
