These sessions are:

Polar Science Session Posters:  presenting results of original research will be accepted on topics and themes relevant to ASSW.  These posters will be displayed in common areas adjacent to the meeting rooms.

Technology for Innovative Observations: Our ability to observe the polar environment has changed dramatically in recent years. This symposium will include oral and poster presentations describing enabling technologies for polar science across a broad spectrum of applications. Presentations should address innovations in techniques and technologies that go beyond off-the-shelf instrumentation.

Early Career Polar Researchers:
The Early Career symposium features oral and poster presentations from researchers who have received a graduate degree within the last five years. Presentations may address any area of polar research.

Those interested in presenting should submit a title, author list, short abstract of not more than 100 words, and name of the appropriate session by Wednesday, 28 February 2007, on the "Contact Us" section of the ASSW 2007 website at:

Presenters are also requested to register on the website, where early registration is available until Wednesday, 14 February 2007.

The purpose of ASSW is to provide opportunities for international coordination, collaboration, and cooperation in all areas of arctic science. The conference is an inaugural event for U.S. participation in the International Polar Year. ASSW 2007 is hosted by the Institute of Arctic Studies at Dartmouth College and the U.S. Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), and is sponsored by the International Arctic Sciences Committee, Arctic Ocean Sciences Board, European Polar Board, Pacific Arctic Group, and Forum of
Arctic Research Operators.
