Call for papers Arctic Frontiers Science 2020
Arctic Frontiers Science 2020 takes place Tuesday 28 January until Thursday 30 January 2020.
Arctic Frontiers Science 2020 will address the following themes:
- Arctic Food Security
- Knowledge-based development in the Arctic
- Disruptive technologies
- Local or Global Arctic? Multi-scaled considerations of connections and remoteness in climate-impacted communities
You can read more about each topic below.
On behalf of the Arctic Frontiers Science Committees, we have great pleasure in inviting you to submit one or more abstracts to any of the four themes.
The abstract submission system will be available shortly. All abstracts are reviewed by scientific experts for rating of abstract quality and presentation content. Deadline for conference abstract submission is Monday 23 September 2019.
In addition, presenters and attendees of Arctic Frontiers 2020 conference are encouraged to contribute to the Springer book volume “BUILDING COMMON INTERESTS IN THE ARCTIC OCEAN WITH GLOBAL INCLUSION” edited by Paul Arthur Berkman, Oran R. Young, Alexander Vylegzhanin, Ole Øvretveit and David A. Balton. The book volume is developed as a part of the collaboration between the Arctic Frontiers and the Science Diplomacy Center, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University. Further details can be found below. We expect that book contributors will give an oral presentation at Arctic Frontiers 2020. Please note that abstract submission deadline for book contributions is on 9 August 2019.
The abstract submission system will be open shortly.

Theme 1: Arctic Food Security
Climate changes in the Arctic have complex ecosystem impacts on human food security and health, both locally and globally. It is important to trace these impacts from their sources in the Arctic to know how these changes affect food security, nutrition and health.
Theme 2: Knowledge-based development in the Arctic
Scientific knowledge is considered to be a critical component of decision-making in addressing fundamental challenges. In order to facilitate discussion we plan an interactive session, where good practices, barriers to implementation and potential solutions will receive particular attention.
Theme 3: Disruptive technologies
Since the first digital products were developed, digitalization has leapt forward and we are now facing a step-change in performance and utilization of digital products in research, businesses and society. We invites speakers addressing "disruptive technologies" developed and/or applied for the Arctic.
Theme 4: Local or Global Arctic? Multi-scaled considerations of connections and remoteness in climate-impacted communities
In this session, we will address this urgency and seek to bring together experts concerned with understanding Arctic climate change and its impacts on communities.
