Il prossimo Congresso della Società Italiana di Ecologia (S.It.E.) si svolgerà a Catania dal 6 all'8 settembre 2023.

Una delle sessioni (Chairs: Concetta Gugliandolo - Università di Messina, e Angelina Lo Giudice CNR-ISP) sarà dedicata agli ambienti estremi, hotspots di biodiversità che rappresentano laboratori naturali per indagare i limiti della vita sulla Terra, comprendere i meccanismi di resistenza e resilienza degli estremofili, e studiare gli effetti dei cambiamenti climatici sul biota e sul microbiota. Seconda Circolare.
La scadenza per la presentazione degli abstract è stata fissata al 15 luglio 2023.

The themes of Arctic Congress Bodø 2024 will follow those of Norway’s Arctic Council chairship priorities in partnership with the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs. Norway’s chairship of the Arctic Council focus on several core issues, including the impacts of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to enhance the well-being of people living in the region.

The deadline for submitting session proposals is 15 June 2023

Call for abstracts for Svalbard Science Conference 23 is open until 15 June.

The organizing committee for SSC2023 will be The Research Council of Norway, The Norwegian Polar Institute, Norwegian Institute for Air Research, The Norwegian Meteorological Institute and Svalbard Science Forum.

SCAR INSTANT Conference 

The INStabilities & Thresholds in ANTarctica (INSTANT) Scientific Research Programme aims to quantify the Antarctic ice sheet contribution to past and future sealevel change, from improved understanding of interactions and feedbacks with atmosphere, ocean and solid Earth. 
This international conference is the first major conference of this SCAR Scientific Research Programme.   

Towards a pollution free society

The Environmental Chemistry Division of the Società Chimica Italiana and the University Ca’ Foscari of Venice will organize the 18th ICCE Conference 2023 in Venice (Italy), a biennial conference under the auspice of the Division of Chemistry and the Environment (DCE) of the European Chemical Society (EuChemS).

SIOS offers a training course on how to effectively use UAVs in Svalbard research.

The goal of the course is to teach participants the basic skills needed to use UAVs in Svalbard.
Location: Longyearbyen, Svalbard


La Società Italiana per l’Organizzazione Internazionale – SIOI e Unitelma Sapienza, d’intesa con il Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale, il CNR, l’UiT The Arctic University of Norway, la Nord University of Bodø organizzano il  Master in Sviluppo Sostenibile, Geopolitica delle risorse e Studi Artici.

The next IUGG General Assembly will take place in Berlin in Germany 11-20 July 2023, with the cryosphere sessions all being scheduled for 12-16 July. The scientific program includes 15 IACS sessions on glaciers, ice sheets, sea ice, snow and permafrost, and more than 15 cryosphere-related symposia joint with other IUGG associations


The SCAR Standing Committee on the Humanities and Social Sciences (SC-HASS) aims to initiate, develop and coordinate rigorous and high quality international research on the Antarctic region within the Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS); to provide independent advice to the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meetings (ATCMs) on issues requiring disciplinary expertise outside the natural sciences; and to coordinate with existing science groups on issues that call for a multidisciplinary approach.

• Session 84: Extending the limits of ice core science beyond new analytical, conceptual and inter- disciplinary frontiers 

Understanding the past climate variability and sensitivity from glacial archives is fundamental for placing the current changes in a longer-term context. The scientific ice core community is currently putting an enormous effort towards retrieving the oldest continuous ice core from Antarctica (Project Beyond EPICA) and training a new generation of ice core scientists capable of analyzing, interpreting, and modelling the new records that will be obtained (ITN DEEPICE project).

Session INQUA-MARE: Pole to pole teleconnections as registered in Antarctic and Arctic Holocene Archives

With the expression “pole to pole teleconnections” we refer to climate anomalies in the Arctic region, caused by oceanic or atmospheric processes originating in the Antarctic region and vice versa. These anomalies are well recognized in today’s climate but are detected with difficulties in the paleoclimate archives. Within the frame of the CMP-Coastal & Marine Processes (Coastal and Marine Processes) Commission and of the SPLOSH (Submerged Palaeolandscapes of the Southern Hemisphere) International Focus Group, the “INQUA MARE” scientific action (INtegrated QUAternary MArine REcord at Sensitive Latitudes, 2020-2024) aims to exhaustively explore the interactions between the tropical and polar regions by studying the Holocene marine sediment records from Arctic, Antarctic and Tropical regions, considered as the most sensitive areas to climate change. With this session, we would like to “recap” the first two INQUA-MARE workshops focused on the Antarctic and on the Arctic realms respectively, to open the discussion also to the terrestrial environment, and to promote next INQUA-MARE workshop that will focus on tropical areas and worldwide teleconnections between high and low latitude regions. We therefore welcome contributions that explore (and possibly compare) Holocene marine and terrestrial records from the Antarctic and Arctic regions highlighting anomalies ascribable to the climate fluctuations regime on the opposite Pole.
