The U.S. Interagency Arctic Logistics Working Group, convened under the Interagency Arctic Research Policy Committee (IARPC) and chaired by the National Science Foundation (NSF), recognized the need for a workshop on logistics and technological capabilities to support research in the Arctic. The occasion of the annual Arctic Science conference American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS)- Arctic Division) at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Fairbanks, Alaska, September 1989, offered an excellent opportunity to convene such a workshop. The AAAS in conjunction with the newly formed university-based consortium, Arctic Research Consortium of the United States (ARCUS) agreed to organize and host the conference in consultation with the IARPC logistics working group.
Dr. John Kelley, Director, Polar Ice Coring Office; Dr. Luis Proenza, Vice Chancellor for Research and President of ARCUS, and Mr. Chris Shepard, Executive Director of ARCUS, convened the workshop on behalf of the AAAS-Arctic Division and ARCUS.
