The goal of the symposium is to discuss safety and integrity-based solutions to operational chal-lenges in harsh environments. The symposium will share scientific knowledge and state of the art research among academics and industry professionals and will propose engineering-based and technological driven solutions to safe industrial operations in Arctic and Sub-Arctic regions.

Original papers describing a scientific understanding and engineering-based solutions on the proposed symposium topics are invited. Review papers and case studies presenting novel solu-tions to challenges in harsh environments are also acceptable. All submitted papers will be peer reviewed and will be short-listed based on quality and relevance of work to the symposium theme.
