Matthew Druckenmiller June 13, 2024

Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2025, which will take place in Boulder, Colorado, will include the summit event of the Fourth International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP IV) process, which is a multi-year effort that began in 2022 to engage the international community on critical topics and priorities for Arctic research in the next 10 years that cut across disciplines and knowledge systems, and that require new and innovative thinking and collaboration. 

ASSW 2025 organizers are accepting session proposals for the ICARP IV Summit, which will take place during 25–28 March 2025, immediately following the ASSW 2025 business and community meetings (20 - 24 March 2025)

Within the overall theme of “Arctic Research Planning for the Next Decade”, sessions are invited to address the following areas:

  • Research topics that align with one or more of the seven existing ICARP IV Research Priority Team Areas.
  • Research topics that are critical for Arctic research planning to consider, but are broader than or not included within any of the seven existing ICARP IV Research Priority Team Areas. For example, topics here may include emerging Arctic threats, new areas in social science, Arctic economies, etc.
  • Matters that are important to Arctic research planning and implementation. For example, topics here may include science policy, research evaluation, research ethics, scenario planning, international funding and coordination mechanisms, etc.

The call for sessions has been extended until 30 June 2024! Please direct questions regarding the ICARP IV call for sessions to
