Integrating spatial and temporal scales in the changing Arctic System: towards future research priorities

21-24 oct. 2014
IUEM - Plouzané (France)

The Arctic in Rapid Transition initiative (ART,, an official IASC network (, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists (APECS, and the European Institute for Marine Studies (IUEM, France,, organize a workshop about “Integrating spatial and temporal scales in the changing Arctic System: towards future research priorities” (ISTAS workshop), October 21-24 2014 in Plouzané, France. This international workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss the integration of spatial and temporal scales to better understand the changing Arctic system as a whole. The workshop will bring together about 60 early career, mid-career and senior scientists from different Arctic research areas including marine, cryosphere, atmosphere, terrestrial and socio-economics to ensure knowledge transfer across generations and disciplines. The workshop will comprise cross-cutting plenary sessions, which will include key note presentations from senior scientists and early career scientists at the forefront of their research area, as well as poster and science presentations from the workshop participants. Breakout sessions will then run in parallel with the aim of discussing in more detail the state of current knowledge and challenges associated with integrating Arctic systems across different temporal and spatial scales. An additional aspect of the workshop will be the formation of working groups that will deliver future priority research “sheets”, which will summarise discussions from previous sessions as well more detailed discussion that occur in these working groups. These Priority Sheets will each be a 2-page document, and together will form a draft research priorities assessment from an early career perspective, and will feed into the larger ICARP III (3rd International Conference on Arctic Research Planning) meeting in Toyama, Japan in April 2015.
