In the lead up to its 35th anniversary in 2025, the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) is coordinating a multi-year planning process for the Fourth International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP IV) lasting from 2022 until 2026 that will engage Arctic researchers, policy makers, residents and stakeholders from around the world to collegially discuss the state of Arctic science, the place the Arctic occupies in global affairs and systems, to

  • consider the most urgent knowledge gaps and Arctic research priorities and needs for the next decade, and
  • explore avenues to address these research needs.

The ICARP IV process will culminate at the ICARP IV / ASSW 2025 conference to be convened in Boulder Colorado, USA in March 2025, hosted by a consortium of US institutions, including the University of Colorado Boulder, University of Northern Iowa, University of Alaska Fairbanks, and Alaska Pacific University.
