ASSW 2023 Science Symposium "The Arctic in the Anthropocene": Call for Abstracts Now Open


The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2023 will be hosted in Vienna (Austria) from 17 – 24 February 2023. Abstract submission for the ASSW 2023 Science Symposium “The Arctic in the Anthropocene” (21 – 24 February 2023) is now open, and it will run until 20 September 2022.

Never before has the Arctic experienced such a high pressure by human impact either by local environmental disturbances or by global climate change leading to long-term changes and massive challenges to the resistance and resilience of polar ecological systems and Arctic societies. “The Arctic in the Anthropocene” is a quite appropriate theme to focus on the increasing pressure of high latitudes. Several sessions offer space to shed light on short- and long-term changes, respectively, on human, terrestrial, aquatic or aerial systems. Despite the focus on the Arctic, contributions on the Antarctic, aiming at fostering networking and advances on research on both poles, are accepted and appreciated.

The conference will be held in a hybrid format including opportunities for both in-person and online oral and poster presentations.

Abstract submission is open for the following sessions:

Each lead author may submit up to one oral and one poster presentation. Abstracts text is limited to 1500 characters and the title should not be longer than 150 characters.

The notification on abstract acceptance will be made by mid-November 2022, with the programme being presented in December 2022. Oral presentations will be up to 12 minutes plus 3 minutes of discussion time. The abstracts will be organized in a book of abstracts with DOI to be made available in pdf.

The deadline for abstract submission is on 20 September 2022.

Abstract submission instructions are available on the ASSW 2023 website:
