Due to current restrictions, this majority of this year’s UArctic congress will be held online. Opening and closing plenaries will take place in the Aula hall at the University of Iceland, and freely streamed online. Physical attendance at these plenaries is by invitation-only. Only a local limited attendance, specially invited, will be able to attend them. 

Individual program sessions will be organized through an online platform and will require registration from the participants prior to the event. The new event portal will launch in April when registrations open. Only a select numer of session will take place on-site in Reykjavik. 

The registration fee will be €90, and free for students.
