Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference in March

The 6th Western Alaska Interdisciplinary Science Conference and Forum “Rural Science in Action” has issued a call for papers. The event will be hosted by the UAF Northwest Campus in Nome March 20 – 22.

Since 2008 WAISC has brought together scientists, rural Alaska leaders and community members, educators, and students to discuss science, research and issues relevant to western Alaska. The 2013 conference will highlight regional scientific efforts and community-based projects, including work based in traditional knowledge and local expertise.

Organizers welcome submissions drawn from all disciplines that use a scientific approach to address questions and issues of concern to western Alaska communities.
