Arctic Science Summit Week 2016
Mar 8, 2016–Mar 11, 2016
Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) is an annual gathering of international organizations involved in Arctic research. It is designed to strengthen collaborations across academia, government agencies, local communities, industry, non-governmental organizations and other Arctic stakeholders.
The 2016 Summit was held in Fairbanks, Alaska, USA and included ASSW Business Meetings, the Arctic Council Senior Arctic Officials Meeting, the 2016 Arctic Observing Summit, and the first fully-developed Model Arctic Council.
The International Arctic Assembly on 15 March was a day of dialogue on issues facing Alaska and the Arctic. The day concluded with a sold-out Banquet featuring Alaska cuisine, dance performances by regional indigenous groups, and live music by local artists. The week also included many public lectures, outreach events, workshops, recreational activities, tours and field trips.
