The Arctic Ocean is highly inaccessible to most methods for observing and working in the ocean's interior. This greatly inhibits addressing key questions surrounding such topics as global climate change, plate tectonics, and deep-sea hydrothermal systems. Recent developments in advanced instrumentation technologies could significantly improve our ability to make observations and collect samples underneath the Arctic ice cap. 

The purpose of the meeting is to provide a forum for Arctic scientists and instrumentation specialists. As such all attendees will have the opportunity to present their research via short presentations and posters, and several working group sessions are planned.

We ask that all participants submit a short
electronic abstract describing their interests. The abstracts will be posted on the website as they become available. If you have not submitted an abstract, please do so at your earliest convenience. The deadline for inclusion of abstracts into a pre-meeting volume is September 30, 2002.
Travel support for US participants is available. Please register by September 1, 2002 if you would like to request travel support.
The general registration deadline has been extended to September 30, 2002.
