The Arctic Change 2014 International Organizing Committee invites proposals for topical sessions of interest to the Arctic research community. Proposals should identify at least two co-chairs planning to attend the meeting. Proposals should include an informative session title (max 150 characters) and a short description of the session (less than 2500 characters). Session descriptions should be broad enough to include all interested researchers, regardless of affiliation or research background.
