Arctic Science Summit Week 2024


21.03. – 29.03.2024


Edinburgh, Scotland


The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) 2024, including the Arctic Observing Summit, will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland. ASSW 2024 will take place from 21 – 29 March 2024

The United Kingdom has been an IASC member country since 1991, and this will be the second time that the UK will host the ASSW, with the first one being in 2000, in Cambridge.  

The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) was initiated by IASC in 1999 to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research and to economize on travel and time. Over the years, the summit evolved into the most important annual gathering of the Arctic research organizations. The summit is organized by an International Coordination Group and any organization engaged in supporting and facilitating Arctic research may participate.
