ASM2023 Conference

Call for Abstracts

ArcticNet is honoured to host our Annual Scientific Meeting for the first time in the North in 2023. We are working closely with local organizations in Iqaluit, contributing to local prosperity and economy, and aim to have a large Northern attendance. However, due to capacity constraints with the Aqsarniit Hotel & Conference Centre, attendance and participation at this year’s ASM will be different than in past years. 

The content of this year’s conference will have a large focus on Inuit-led research and ArcticNet funded projects with compelling and advanced results. There will be no concurrent sessions due to the size of the venue, we can only accept 60 abstract presentations that will be given as 15-minute talks throughout the conference. As this is a limited number of speakers, priority will be given to ArcticNet researchers from academic-led and Indigenous-led projects, including highly qualified personnel, such as post-docs and PhD students. Abstract submission will only be open to these members. The abstract selection process will be conducted by a committee comprised of members from ArcticNet’s Inuit Research Management Committee and Research Management Committee. 

In-person registration will proceed in the same manner. Priority will be given to residents of Iqaluit and Nunavut, as well as the rest of Northern Canada, and ArcticNet funded researchers. If there is remaining vacancy, in-person registration will then open to the public. 

The entirety of ASM2023 will be livestreamed for all to watch with reduced registration rates (more information to come on how to register). Additionally, the yearly poster contest will be held online at the same capacity as usual, with submission open to all. 

ArcticNet funded researchers should expect an email soon detailing how to submit an abstract and secure their spot for the ASM2023.
