The NySMAC committee itself convenes twice a year. In addition NySMAC regularly hosts international scientific seminars (the Ny-Ålesund seminar) and other specific workshops.


NySMAC meetings

The NySMAC spring meeting is often arranged as part of the Arctic Science Summit Week business meetings, while the autumn meeting is arranged by one of the member institutions.

The next and 51st NySMAC meeting will be held just after the Svalbard Science Conference, on the 7-8 November 2019 in Oslo, Norway. Meeting start is 12:00 on the 7th, and ending is 16:00 on the 8th.

Ny-Ålesund seminar

The Ny-Ålesund seminar is a biannual meeting place for scientists who have Ny-Ålesund as a base for their research and monitoring activities. The seminars aim to exchange scientific results, advancements, ideas and experience to inspire each other and increase further coordination and collaboration among researchers in Ny-Ålesund.
