Creative Forces in the Polar Regions: Culture, Economies, Innovation, and Change in Tourism
Yukon Territory, Canada, June 22-28, 2018
The 6th IPTRN conference – Creative Forces in the Polar Regions: Cultures, Economies, Innovations, and Change in Tourism – will follow the IPTRN community tour model. The conference will begin in Whitehorse and travel to several Yukon communities. In addition to papers and other presentations, participants will engage in community activities held in collaboration with local organisations and residents, and engage in a variety of Yukon visitor experiences.

The conference and community tour will engage participants by exploring and seeking solutions to polar tourism concerns and opportunities in relation to a variety of thematic areas, including: the cultural economy; economic diversification and community development; cultural and tourism entrepreneurship; social, cultural, and environmental impacts; tourism planning and development challenges and strategies; visitor experience innovations; and problem-solving in polar areas.

Past IPTRN conferences have examined economic development and environmental aspects of tourism in the polar world (see publication list at the end of this call). Papers presented at the 6th IPTRN conference are encouraged to explore how expectations toward tourism development in peripheral places contribute to the cultural wellbeing of peripheral communities and how cultural tourism can be managed to advance economic benefits, enhance our understanding of human/nature relationships, and protection of the natural environment.
To that end, the 6th IPTRN conference invites papers that examine:

  • Culture and cultural tourism, including policy
  • Parks, protected areas and cultural tourism
  • Winter tourism and cold weather cultures: attractions, visitors, opportunities and challenges
  • Indigenous culture and tourism
  • Community interactions with polar tourists
  • An inclusive Arctic – the role of arts, culture and tourism for demographic diversity (e.g., ethnic groups, the LGBTQ community)
  • Economic geographies of and innovation in polar tourism
  • The social and cultural construction of touristic polar places and spaces

While the conference has a specific focus, abstracts that examine any aspects of polar tourism are welcome.

SCAR/IASC Conference
15 - 16 June 2018, Davos-Switzerland

The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research SCARSCAR and the International Arctic Science Committee IASC invite the international polar and high altitude community to their joint meeting POLAR2018, hosted by WSL and SLF in Davos, Switzerland.
Program Overview
15 - 18 June 2018: SCAR and IASC/ASSW Business & Satellite Meetings
19 - 23 June 2018: SCAR/IASC Open Science Conference, including the COMNAP Symposium
24 - 26 June 2018: SCAR Delegates Meeting & 2018 Arctic Observing Summit

The goal of POLAR2018 is to bring together excellent research from both poles, as well as from high altitude areas, focusing on the similar challenges those regions face. The program features 65 different sessions, structured into 12 categories. In addition to the parallel sessions, central elements of the Open Science Conference (OSC) will be keynote presentations, mini-symposia, extended poster sessions, and exhibitions. The annual COMNAP symposium will be held during the OSC, as well as a plenary lecture from the 2018 Arctic Observing Summit as an opening to this biennial summit immediately after the OSC. A range of excursions and trips will allow participants to make the most of coming to the Swiss Alps and enjoy science, nature, culture, and sports.
POLAR2018 will be held in the Swiss mountain town of Davos, which can easily be reached by train from Zurich Airport. Davos, Europe's highest city, is situated in the Eastern part of the Swiss Alps at 1560 meters above sea level. It offers an advanced congress infrastructure and a wide range of accommodation for all budgets. The stunning alpine environment will ensure your visit is an enjoyable experience.
