The meeting served to gather member institution representatives, the Board of Directors, and the staff of ARCUS together with other members of the arctic research community, key agency personnel and policy makers to discuss this year's theme "International Arctic Research at a Turning Point: Innovations and Collaborations for the Future".

The Forum was co-chaired by Craig Tweedie, University of Texas at El Paso and Volker Rachold, International Arctic Science Committee. Presentations were made by invited and contributing researchers representing diverse disciplines, projects, and programs. Presentations and panel discussions addressed emerging challenges requiring cooperative approaches, innovations in collaboration, and solutions and keys to future success.
