KUM! Festival è il progetto di Massimo Recalcati per la Mole Vanvitelliana di Ancona.

Quest'anno il festival ha voluto introdurre attività laboratoriali scientifiche indirizzate agli studenti delle scuole medie.  Nasce così  il format KUM!Lab, una tre giorni interamente dedicata al territorio organizzata in tre sezioni: la Persona; il Pianeta; l'Arte. Ognuna di queste tre sezioni coinvolge attori locali, istituzionali e non, e propone attività di informazione e di laboratorio sul tema dell'anno, con un focus specifico dedicato alle scuole e all'adolescenza. Il sottotitolo, Cantieri, mette l’accento sull’urgenza della ripartenza e sulla bellezza del lavoro che noi tutti svolgiamo quotidianamente. Nella sezione Cosmo-Cura del Pianeta è stato coinvolto il Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche con l'Istituto di Scienze Polari e l'Unità Comunicazione.

• 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.

1 November 2022 – Deadline abstract submission 

SIOS online conference on Earth observation and remote sensing applications in Svalbard, 12-14 October 2022 - Online

The aim of the online conference is to promote the work of PhD students, postdocs, researchers, senior scientists, and academics who are actively contributing to the science of Svalbard, to review the state-of-the-art Earth Observation and Remote Sensing applications in Svalbard and  to provide a social experience to the Svalbard scientific community. 

The fifth SIOS Polar Night Week (PNW) will take place in Longyearbyen, 23-27 January 2023.

This annual meeting brings the SIOS community together for science seminars, working group meetings and plenary discussions. One of the highlights is the release of newest issue of the State of Environmental Science (SESS) report.

The Arctic Science Summit Week (ASSW) is organized annually by the International Arctic Science Committee (IASC) to provide opportunities for coordination, cooperation and collaboration between the various scientific organizations involved in Arctic research. 

The programme for the ASSW 2023 includes two parts.

The 6th European Conference on Permafrost (EUCOP6) will take place June 18-22, 2023, in a potentially hybrid format with online and in-person attendance to Puigcerdà, Catalonia, Spain.
