The 10th anniversary International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences (ICASS X) entitled “Arctic Generations: Looking Back and Looking Forward” will be held in NArFU on 15-19 June 2020. The university was chosen as the venue on 12 June 2017 at IASSA General Assembly in Sweden.
At present there are over 500 registered participants (including representatives of indigenous peoples) eager to share their experience in Arctic research and discuss the most popular current and future trends in social sciences.
In the framework of the Congress guests will be offered a diverse cultural programme encompassing guided tours and screenings of films provided by NArFU Arctic Bridge Media Centre and the Arctic Open Film Festival.
The International Congress of Arctic Social Sciences is held every three years. Russia will be hosting the Congress for the first time, and NArFU will become the first Russian university to receive it.
