Arctic Infrastructure Science Talks

Third Thursdays, Sept-May | Online

Join us each month for one or two 15-20 minute talks followed by questions and open discussion. The goal is to provide an informal forum for researchers to share knowledge in between major conferences. It provides an especially good opportunity for students and Early Career Researchers to present their work and get diverse, multidisciplinary feedback. The science talk series is an activity of the T-MOSAiC Arctic Infrastructure Action Group.

The meeting link will be sent in advance of the meeting to the T-MOSAiC Arctic Infrastructure Action Group email list. To join the mailing list, first send an email to the Action Group coordinator using the contact form below. You will be sent a link to sign up for the mailing list, usually within 24-48 hours.

If you would like to present a paper, project or work in progress, please use the contact form below to email the Action Group coordinator. We welcome speakers at any career stage working in the natural sciences, social sciences and engineering, as well as Indigenous knowledge holders, on topics related to infrastructure and environmental change in the Arctic. Eventually we will recruit several conveners to review requests and schedule talks.
