Arctic Encounter Seattle 2016 The Arctic Encounter Seattle 2016 "Our Best Chance: Acting Right in the Arctic" will be held in Seattle, WA on January 15-16, 2016. 

Hosted by the University of Washington School of Law, the Arctic Encounter will convene its third annual national symposia in Seattle, Washington. Building upon prior Arctic Encounter Seattle (AES) events, this two-day conference will confront the shared interests and concerns of the United States and the global community as we look north to the last emerging frontier – the Arctic.

Policymakers, industry leaders, regional stakeholders and leading experts from the science, technology, maritime and energy sectors, will come together at AES to address challenges to right action in the Arctic region and debate solutions.

As the largest annual Arctic policy event in the U.S., AES participants will engage in expert plenary sessions, two keynote luncheons, breakout sessions, a cocktail hour and seated dinner at the Museum of History & Industry on Lake Union and a closing reception. We hope you will join us in Seattle!
