Arctic Science Summit Week 2024 - ASSW 2024

The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2024 starts tomorrow, Thursday March 21 st in Edinburgh in Scotland. The ASSW is organised annually by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between the various scientific organisations involved in Arctic research.

It was initiated by the IASC in 1999 and has evolved into the most important annual gathering of the Arctic research organisation. In even number years as now in 2024 the ASSW includes the Arctic Observing Summit (AOS), a high-level, biennial summit that aims to provide community-driven, science-based guidance for the design, implementation, coordination and long-term operation of Arctic observing systems.

This year, the programme is very diverse and includes three parts:

  • ASSW 2024 Business and Community Meetings (21 - 29 March 2024)
  • ASSW 2024 Science Day 2024 "Arctic Coasts" (26 March 2024)
  • Arctic Observing Summit 2024 (27 - 29 March 2024)

The main venue is the Pollock Estate of the University of Edinburgh with the exception that the ASSW 2024 Science Day on 26 March will take place at Dynamic Earth
