A first science meeting for the Changing Arctic Ocean (CAO) programme is being held at the Glasgow Science Centre on 28 September (09:00-18:00) and 29 September (09:00-14:00).

The purpose of the meeting is to introduce programme participants to all aspects of the CAO programme, to update on progress so far (after the completion of the first cruise) and to discuss future plans. All those who are directly involved and affiliated with the four Changing Arctic Ocean awards are invited to attend.

Individuals wishing to participate in this meeting should complete the online registration form as soon as possible. The closing date for registrations is 16:00 on 5 September 2017.

For funded programme participants, accommodation has been reserved for the nights of 27 and 28 September, with costs paid by the programme. Attendees from Glasgow are encouraged to attend on a day delegate basis. Travel and subsistence costs will be met by NERC but delegates must follow the research council travel, subsistence and expenses policy (PDF) - external link - guidelines and be within the limits found in Appendix 2.

Scientists associated with, but not directly funded by, the programme will not be able to claim for their travel, accommodation and subsistence costs incurred as a result of attending the meeting (this does not included refreshments served at the meeting).
