Arctic Congress Bodø 2024

29 May - 3 June 2024 in Bodø, Norway

Hosted by Nord University and Nordland Research Institute 

The 11th International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences, ICASS XI, will take place as part of the Arctic Congress Bodø 2024.

The Congress is hosted by Nord University and Nordland Research Institute, and organised in collaboration between IASSA, UArctic and the High North Center. The event joins together ICASS XI, UArctic Congress 2024 and the High North Dialogue 2024. The themes of the Congress will follow those of Norway’s Arctic Council Chairship Program in partnership with the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs. 

The event will include a meeting of the IASSA General Assembly, high-level plenary and parallel sessions, as well as networking and social activities.

Bringing three conferences together in Bodø - a 2024 European Cultural Capital - will be an extraordinary showcase of Arctic cooperation. The Arctic Congress Bodø 2024 will provide excellent opportunities to exchange knowledge, and to meet and connect across the Arctic.

See you in Bodø in 2024!
