Registration is now open for the first Toolik All Scientists Meeting, which will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Portland, Oregon, on Friday and Saturday, January 27-28, 2017. The goal of the meeting is to promote collaboration and synthesis among Toolik researchers and others working in the Arctic.

The first day of the meeting (Friday) will be devoted to scientific talks and posters. Everyone is invited to bring a research poster. We will provide dinner on Friday evening. The second day (Saturday) will include an open discussion of ideas for synthesis and collaboration.

Use the link to the right to register and let us know you're planning to attend. We have a limited amount of funding to support travel to the meeting for those who do not have their own travel funding. Supported participants must present a research poster. If you would like to request travel support, please indicate this in the registration form, and we will get back to you.

We look forward to an exciting scientific discussion with you in Portland!
