The 2010 AFS allowed a frank and open exchange of views between the participants, scientists and policy makers, economic operatives and decision makers, interested observers and Arctic actors. The proceedings of the symposium can be accessed here.

The IPF is currently in the process of coordinating this year's event to be held from the 12th to the 14th October 2011 in Brussels and welcomes your thoughts and suggestions on potential topics and speakers for this year's event, as well as your thoughts on the final products that have come out of the 2010 event.

Please send any suggestions you may have to Joseph Cheek or Nathalie Vanisacker.
