The International Conference on Arctic Research Planning (ICARP) is an Arctic Science Conference, convened periodically by IASC and its partners to identify key scientific questions and issues:
- ICARP IV will be held in Boulder, CO (USA) in 2025.
- ICARP III, held in Toyama (Japan) 2015, provided a framework to further the development of cross-cutting, interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary initiatives for advancing Arctic research cooperation and applications of Arctic knowledge. The IASC Strategic Plan (2018-2023) builds on the key priorities and overarching messages of ICARP III
- ICARP II, held in Copenhagen (Denmark) 2005, developed twelve forward-looking science plans and resulted in several follow-up international projects and programs, mostly within the framework of the International Polar Year 2007-2008.
- ICARP I, held in Hanover NH (USA) 1995, reviewed the state of Arctic science and resulted in a series of IASC-supported research projects;
