The AAAS Arctic Division announces the 2009 Arctic Science Conference: Impact of Environment on Human Health - Interdisciplinary Science and Education. The conference will be held in Juneau, Alaska, 14-16 September 2009.

The International Polar Year (IPY) offered an opportunity to investigate the Arctic System and to establish international collaborations between researchers, educators and policy makers. In order to respond and adapt to what has been learned, this conference provides an opportunity to explore the outcomes of international collaborative science, engineering, and education research resulting from IPY. This is a good starting point for discussion on the impact of a changing environment on health.

Anyone interested in submitting an abstract for the 2009 Arctic Science Conference can do so online at http://arctic.aaas.org./. The abstract submission deadline is 1 August 2009.

Registration will be available online at http://arctic.aaas.org./ beginning 1 May 2009. Please visit the website for information regarding discounted rates at the Westmark Baranof Juneau, the conference hotel.
