The ASSW is the annual gathering of international organizations engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research. Its purpose is to provide opportunities for international coordination, collaboration and cooperation in all fields of Arctic science and to combine science and management meetings. Side meetings organized by groups with interest in the Arctic science and policy will also be held within the week.

One of them is already planned: The Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS) will offer a one-day career development workshop during the ASSW 2013.

The ASSW in 2013 will include a three-day Science Symposium entitled: The Arctic Hub – Regional and Global Perspectives.

Arctic Portal will participate in the symposium with the presentation titled: Communication and structure of scientific data in order to support regional and global sustainability of the Arctic Region.
