The annual Arctic AAAS Division meeting will be held in Anchorage, Alaska from 24-26 September 2007. This year's conference theme is "Partnering for Northern Futures: Science, Policy, Education, Legacy In the International Polar Year." The conference features symposia on a diverse range of topics, plenary sessions, workshops, and an international juried art exhibition.

The importance of the Arctic is little understood in relation to global affairs. Among the eight circumpolar nations are three of the four largest in the world in geographic area. The Arctic will possibly become an important route for trade and commerce between Europe and the Eastern Pacific regions during the 21st century. Vast natural resources in the arctic regions add to its value. The International Polar Year offers an opportunity to leave a legacy brought about by the results of international collaborative science and engineering research.
