2019 Toolik All Scientists Meeting – Portland, OR, February 1-2, 2019

Registration is now open for the 2019 Toolik All Scientists Meeting, which will be held in Portland, Oregon, on Friday and Saturday, February 1 & 2, 2019. The goal of the meeting is to share scientific findings, promote collaboration, and gather future science support requirements for services and facilities needed among Toolik researchers and others working in the Arctic.

This is an open meeting! The first day (Friday) will be devoted to scientific talks and posters. Everyone is invited to bring a research poster to the poster session, and we will provide dinner on Friday evening. The second day (Saturday) will include a discussion of ideas for future facilities and research support.

Use the link below 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 are otherwise not able to attend. 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!
