Vienna, Austria


ASSW 2023 will be held in Vienna, Austria from 17 - 24 February 2023. Austria has been an IASC member country since 2014, and 2023 is a very special year for polar research in Austria - it is the 150th anniversary of the Austro-Hungarian expedition to Franz Josef Land! Consideration of dates, location, and scheduling of an open science conference, are currently underway by the local hosts (the Austrian Polar Research Institue) and the IASC Secretariat.
