EUREKA 2010: Canadian Arctic Science at 80N
13.01.2010 - 15.01.2010 
Lord Elgin Hotel - Ottawa


13-15 January 2010
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Organizers announce the "EUREKA 2010: Canadian Arctic Science at 80N" workshop, which will be convened 13-15 January 2010 at the Lord Elgin
Hotel in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

For over 60 years, the Canadian station at Eureka, Nunavut (80N, 86.4W) has provided a base for research in the High Arctic as well as
fulfilling its role as a weather station for Environment Canada. Over that time a substantial body of research has been accomplished and a
large group of researchers have utilized the facility. However, beause of the varied nature and timing of the research, these groups have
rarely met together. More recently, the International Polar Year (IPY) has provided opportunities for researchers from various international
stations to collaborate with the researchers at Eureka, particularly those who are part of the International Arctic Systems for Observing
the Arctic (IASOA).

The aim of this workshop is to bring together the various research groups that utilize the facilities at Eureka for science research in
the High Arctic to share research and results and to offer plans for future research and collaboration. It is hoped that by providing this
workshop venue, collaborations can be stimulated and strengthened. Logistics for activities at Eureka are a continual challenge and increased dialog
and sharing of resources can be very beneficial. Eureka is a unique resource for Canada and innovative ideas for future activities and facilities
will be welcome. The workshop format will be informal with opportunity for both presentations and discussion.
