Many other Arctic conferences in 2020 have already been cancelled or postponed, which could create additional organizational pressures - but also opportunities - for the UArctic Congress this fall.

We recognize that in this situation it is not easy to confirm participation in the Congress. We will do our best to be as flexible as possible regarding confirmations from session conveners, as we know it is currently challenging to secure commitments for speakers.

UArctic continues to work closely with the local organizers, Arctic Circle, and our other partners to develop contingency plans should we not be able to proceed. We will coordinate the event registration together with the Arctic Circle Assembly so that we can give sufficient advance warning to minimize any potential financial impact on participants. We will provide updates through this website and UArctic News.
