The Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard, with a location in the high Arctic and easy accessibility, represents a unique platform for high quality international research and education.

The Svalbard Science Forum, The Research Council of Norway and The Norwegian Polar Institute in cooperation with The Ny-Ålesund Science Managers Committee (NySMAC) invite researchers, research managers and stakeholders to the second Svalbard Science conference. The conference will focus on Svalbard in a pan-Arctic setting, aspiring to enhance cooperation and quality within Svalbard research, build and strengthen interdisciplinary and international networks and consolidate Svalbard as an attractive platform for Arctic research.

Together with updates on the new strategies for research and education in Svalbard and inspirational talks from invited key notes, we invite participants to take an active role in the conference through presentations, poster sessions and group discussions. Registration and abstract submission will open in March 2019.
