The next UK Arctic Conference will be 11-13 September 2019, hosted by Loughborough University. Details on UK Arctic website.
SAMS hosted conference September 2017
The last UK Arctic Science Conference took place over three days and was hosted by the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) in Oban. The UK Arctic Science conferences have brought together researchers with a common interest in the Arctic environment. Since its inception in 2009 there has been a great diversity in the science that has been presented. The conference is multidisciplinary and with an inclusive approach to abstract submission.
It was the fifth UK Arctic Science Conference. The programmes from previous conferences can be found on the NERC website.
