The International Polar Year 2007-2009 attracted public, scientific and political attention to polar regions. The main focus of the Polar Worlds Conference is to account for observed changes with a joint environmental and social perspective.
Changes in polar worlds are at the core of the main scientific fields as these regions are particularly prone to environmental and social evolutions. This conference will give an overview of certainties and uncertainties in current mutations.
