The Arctic Data Center is soliciting requests for proposals for a Synthesis
Working Group. Proposals are due May 23, 2018.

To promote the analysis and synthesis of Arctic data, as well as to inform
ongoing development of the data repository, the Arctic Data Center is
soliciting requests for proposals for a Synthesis Working Group, with
research to begin by October 2018. Funding of up to $54,600 is available to
support one Working Group, hosting two meetings of 3-5 days, with
approximately 15 participants each at the Arctic Data Center in Santa
Barbara, California, over an anticipated 1-1.5 year period. Proposals must
focus on Arctic-related research issues, and primarily (but not necessarily
exclusively) involve the analysis and synthesis of data contained within the
 Arctic Data Center Repository <https://arcticdata.io/catalog/>.

This year we request that all synthesis proposals explicitly address
factors related to one or more human dimensions of the Arctic experience,
in addition to environmental aspects. These can include synthesis
investigations into social-cultural processes, economic factors, Arctic
indigenous peoples’ perspectives, etc., relative to the unique biophysical
challenges of life in the Arctic region.

For more information and to submit a proposal, visit
https://arcticdata.io/proposals/. Please email proposals at arctica.io with
any questions.
