The 8th biennial Ice-Diminishing Arctic Symposium, co-hosted by the U.S. Arctic Research Commission, the Wilson Center's Polar Institute, the U.S. National Ice Center, the Patuxent Partnership, and St. Mary's College of Maryland will be held on July 17 and 18, 2019 at the Ronald Reagan Building Amphitheater.

This two-day event will feature experts speaking on Arctic marine operations, ocean and environmental issues, science, policy, law, and governance. Participants will learn about the impacts of an ice-diminishing Arctic Ocean on marine transportation, resource development, scientific research, federal, state, local, and international operations, and policy implications in the rapidly evolving Arctic. The symposium will be webcast and recorded, and a reception will be held at the conclusion of the first day.

Participants are invited to present posters on science, technology, operations, or other related subjects. For more information, please check here or contact LTJG Bryan Brasher.
