2nd Arctic in Rapid Transition (ART) Science Workshop

21.10 - 24.10.2014
Brest, France

The ART workshop about “Integrating spatial and temporal scales in the changing Arctic System: towards future research priorities” (ISTAS) aims at discussing the integration of spatial and temporal scales to better understand the changing Arctic system as a whole, by including various Arctic research fields such as physical oceanography, sea-ice, biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems functioning, marine biodiversity, land-ocean interactions, ocean-atmosphere exchanges and ocean acidification, paleo-reconstruction and biological archives, and social sciences.

During the workshop, in parallel sessions and discussion groups future Arctic research priorities will be elaborated. Results of this workshop feed into the larger ICARP III meeting (3rd International Conference on Arctic Research Planning) in Toyama, Japan in April 2015 (

This international workshop is jointly organized by the Arctic in Rapid Transition initiative (ART,, an official IASC network (, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS,, and the European Institute for Marine Studies (IUEM, France,

The workshop is open to any scientist who shares a common interest in improving our understanding of ongoing changes in the Arctic and developing dialogues on interdisciplinary Arctic research approaches and future directions.

Limited funding will be available for early career scientists.

Abstract submission and registration are now open under
