Polar Programs Advisory Committee —
Workshop Reports


Workshops influence program goals, investigators' proposals, and funding decisions. In fiscal 2001, the National Science Foundation funded 472 workshops. The list below contains only those workshops held over the last several years that—

  1. relate to polar research
  2. are relevant to NSF funding decisions, and
  3. were funded by NSF’s Office of Polar Programs

Workshops supported by other parts of NSF—or performed without NSF support—can be relevant to Office of Polar Programs decisions. No attempt is made to list those here.

Criteria for support of conferences, symposia, and workshops are in the Grant Proposal Guide (gpg14001), chapter II, section D.8.

  • Records for the Polar Programs Advisory Committee (1998-2012) can be found here.
  • Polar Research Board (PRB), National Research Council, partially funded by NSF, analyzes science and technology matters affecting public policy regarding research, environmental quality, natural resources, and other arctic and antarctic issues. On the web site, see especially Recent Studies, Publications, and Meeting Information.
  • Arctic Research Consortium of the United States, funded by NSF, identifies and brings together the human and facilities resources of the arctic research community.
  • Lockheed Martin's Antarctic Support Contract, under contract to NSF, operates South Pole, Palmer, and McMurdo-area user committeesand an antarctic research vessel oversight committee (see the user committees web page) .
