The congress takes place from 29 May to 3 June 2024 in Bodø, Norway, hosted by Nordland Research Institute and NORD University. Bringing three conferences together in Bodø – one of the 2024 European Cultural Capitals - will be an extraordinary showcase of Arctic cooperation.

The congress includes high-level plenary sessions, several parallel sessions, network activities, and social and cultural events. It is an excellent opportunity for researchers, policymakers, businesses, and students to exchange knowledge and meet and connect across the Arctic. IASSA and UArctic will also hold their General Assemblies.

Arctic Congress Bodø 2024 takes place on Sami land. The congress’ logo honours the local cultures and we welcome you to Bodø in Lule Sami, Pite Sami, Norwegian and English!
