The 2013 Arctic Science Conference will be held September 26th-28th in Kodiak, Alaska, at the Kodiak Harbor Convention Center. The conference theme is Fisheries and Watersheds: Food Security, Education and Sustainability.
Future concerns about Alaska's marine resources, particularly the fisheries, revolve around the status of research and education and our ability to wisely utilize this cornucopia. The 2013 Arctic Science Conference will feature a variety of sessions focusing on marine science, sustainability, circumpolar health, and interdisciplinary education.
Four plenary speakers are on the program. Six oral sessions are: Marine Biology; Fisheries; Seafood Science; Interdisciplinary, General and Applied Science; Sustainability; Science Education. Also, a workshop is being planned on Community Science, K-12 Interactions, and Teacher Trainings. A poster session rounds out the meeting.
All conference sessions are open to the public and the public is welcome to attend. General admission fees will be announced soon.
