Prior to the start of the Congress, UArctic activity leaders, members and partners have the opportunity to meet to discuss issues of mutual interest. Pre-meetings can be convened only on Sunday, September 2, 2018.

In addition, UArctic is pleased to support side-events held during the week. Arranged by UArctic activity leaders and partners, these side-events are organized independently of the core program of the Congress, but are linked to its main purpose. Side-events can be held during the week-long program, except for Tuesday, September 4.

All pre-meetings will be automatically added to the Congress program under the heading "Meetings". Requests for side-events are subject to approval by the Chairs of the Congress Committees. All approved side-events will be added to the Congress program under the heading "Side Events." All pre-meeting and side event participants will be required to register for the UArctic Congress 2018, which gives them access to the full program, meals and social events.

To reserve a room for your pre-meeting or side event, please complete this form and submit before April 1, 2018. If you have any questions, please contact secretariat@uarctic.org.
