Thank you to all of the attendees who made this workshop a success! We will be following up with information over the next couple of weeks. Most importantly will be the submission of project information from each of the project contacts. This information will be collected using an online submission form.

About (archived 10 June, 2007)

The meeting was the first international coordinating meeting for POLARCAT since the inception of IPY. At present we have over 38 participants registered from eight different countries representing 20 different activities. Vital to the success of POLARCAT and the International Polar Year (IPY) is the close cooperation of these activities in all aspects of the research including: campaign planning and data collection, data sharing and archiving protocols, and activity outreach. This initial meeting will serve as staging point for these subjects, and thus represents a critical component of the POLARCAT program.
