The primary purpose of this conference is to bring together Polar
Scientists and Technology Developers in a forum to exchange
information on research system operational needs and technology
solutions that have been successful in polar environments.  This
exchange of knowledge helps to address issues of design,
implementation, and deployment for systems that are to achieve
their research goals in the Polar Regions.

Past participants have come from the private sector, state and
federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academia.
Presentations generally cover system requirements for proposed
research along with descriptions of systems and approaches that
have been proven in polar deployments.  Typical hardware and
software topics have included weather stations, robotics, power
systems, telemetry, and remote communications.  The scale of
systems ranges from the autonomous data collection towers to large
scale research stations. Polar venues represented include under,
on, and above the ice, tundra, or sea.

Discussions on intra- and inter-national cooperation in site
deployment and maintenance are encouraged. Informal breaks allow
for opportunities for networking and information exchange. A
poster session is also included.  We are pleased to have support
from the National Science Foundation's Office of Polar Programs as
an endorsement of the concept of bringing together providers and
consumers of these technologies in hopes of benefiting from that
synergy.  Previous years' lists of presentations and participants
can be found through links on the conference website.
