Fields centred on Arctic palaeoenviornments have traditionally been at the core of the Arctic Workshop. Past sessions at the Arctic Workshop have included presentations on glaciology, environmental geochemistry, geomorphology, hydrology, soils, ecology, oceanography, Quaternary history, archaeology and more.

This year we are also encouraging abstracts on topics relating to polar field teaching approaches, challenges, technologies and pedagogics. We also encourage abstracts on sustainability in Arctic research and education.

For those who are presenting, abstracts should be submitted by email to organization@aw2022.org.

Abstracts for talks and posters should contain a title, authors (including presenting author), author affiliations, and abstract text. Please indicate if your abstract is for a talk or poster. Avoid submitting figures or references as part of your abstract. Abstract text (excluding title, authors, and affiliations) should be limited to 300 words. An MS Word template for your abstract can be downloaded here: Abstract Template

The length of oral presentations is set at 15 minutes, plus five minutes for questions. Standard digital projection equipment will be available.

Maximum poster dimensions are A0 (841 x 1189 mm; 33.1 x 46.8 inches) ISO-216 standard, portrait orientation. Poster presenters will be assigned a numbered poster board. Please note, there will be no capacity to print your poster after arrival at the Svalbard Science Centre, so please bring your poster already printed on paper, vinyl, or fabric.

Prizes will be available for the best student oral presentation and best student poster.
