ICSU-WDS Co-hosts International Polar Data Forum

ICSU-WDS Co-hosts International Polar Data Forum

Around 100 people gathered at the National Museum of Nature and Science (NMNS) in Tokyo, Japan on 15–16 October 2013 to participate in the WDS co-hosted International Forum on 'Polar Data Activities in Global Data Systems'. To ensure that the lessons learnt and the momentum generated during this stimulating event are built upon, the Scientific Organizing Committee is currently preparing a Communique for wide dissemination (which will be made available on the WDS website).

We express our appreciation to the Forum organizers and, in particular, to the sponsoring organizations—the National Institute of Polar Research, the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, and NMNS—for their unstinting generosity.
