Purpose of the Conference

This conference is being organized with the following objectives:

 To increase international cooperation, collaboration, and
    exchange of ideas among researchers interested in arctic
    ecosystems including especially Russian participation
 To assess our current knowledge and ability to predict the
    likely effects of anticipated global change on the structure
    and function of arctic ecosystems

 To assess likely positive and negative feedbacks of arctic
    ecosystems on the global atmosphere and climate
 To identify needed areas of additional research and the
    appropriate approaches for accomplishing that research

The conference will improve cooperation among researchers working
on arctic terrestrial ecosystems.  A published report will
summarize the workshop proceedings and recommendations and should
be helpful in the stimulation and coordination of international
arctic research.  There will be three additional publications: 
Abstracts, Contributed papers, Invited papers.
